Camden County, New Jersey, Man Sentenced To 10 Years In Prison For Supplying Crack Cocaine To Drug Trafficking Organization

CAMDEN, N.J. - A Camden County, New Jersey, man was sentenced today to 120 months in prison for his role in a Camden drug trafficking organization that distributed large amounts of crack cocaine, furanyl fentanyl and heroin, U.S. Attorney Craig Carpenito announced.

Mark Campbell, 39, a/k/a “D” and Diz,” of Sicklerville, New Jersey, previously pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Renée Marie Bumb to a superseding information charging him with one count of conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute 280 grams or more of cocaine base. Judge Bumb imposed the sentence today in Camden federal court.

According to documents filed in this case and statements made in court:

Campbell admitted that he supplied large quantities of cocaine base (crack cocaine) to members of a drug trafficking organization operating around the 1700 block of Filmore Street in Camden. The organization also distributed heroin and furanyl fentanyl, which it obtained from other suppliers. Ten members of the drug ring were arrested in June 2017 following a long-term investigation by the FBI, which utilized multiple telephone wiretaps, surveillance, confidential informants, cooperating witnesses, more than 20 controlled drug purchases, a GPS vehicle tracker and four court-authorized search warrants, among other investigative techniques. Members of the drug trafficking organization distributed crack cocaine, furanyl fentanyl, and heroin to users and resellers in and around Camden and to people cooperating with the FBI.

The investigation ultimately led to the seizure of more than 300 grams of crack cocaine, quantities of furanyl fentanyl and heroin, a firearm, and drug paraphernalia. An 11th defendant was later charged in March 2018.

In addition to the prison term, Judge Bumb sentenced Campbell to three years of supervised release, 300 hours of community service and fined him $10,000.

U.S. Attorney Carpenito credited special agents of the FBI’s South Jersey Violent Offender and Gang Task Force, South Jersey Resident Agency, under the direction of Special Agent in Charge Michael T. Harpster; the Camden County Police Department, under the direction of Chief Joseph Wysocki; the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office, under the direction of Acting Prosecutor Jill S. Mayer; and the N.J. State Police, under the direction of Col. Patrick J. Callahan, with the investigation. He also thanked the Camden County Sheriff’s Department, the Cherry Hill Police Department, and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) for their assistance.

The government is represented by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Gabriel J. Vidoni and Alisa Shver of the U.S. Attorney’s Office Criminal Division in Camden.
