Camden Man Admits Conspiracy To Distribute Heroin




CAMDEN, N.J. – A Camden man today admitted his involvement in a heroin distribution ring, U.S. Attorney Paul J. Fishman announced.

Keenan Johnson, a/k/a “Super Star K,” a/k/a “K,” 30, pleaded guilty before U.S. District Court Judge Joseph E. Irenas to an information charging him with conspiring to distribute more than 100 grams of heroin.

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

From December 2007 through June 2012, Johnson conspired with others to distribute and possess with the intent to distribute more than 100 grams of heroin. 

The counts to which Johnson pleaded guilty carry a maximum potential penalty of 40 years in prison and a fine of $5 million. Under terms of the plea, Johnson must forfeit to the United States $ 52,380 seized from his residence, as well as four vehicles, jewelry, and a Glock 26 9mm semi-automatic handgun. Sentencing is scheduled for Jan. 16, 2015.

U.S. Attorney Fishman credited special agents of the FBI’s Resident Agency in Cherry Hill, N.J., under the direction of Special Agent in Charge Edward J. Hanko; and the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office, under the direction of Prosecutor Mary Eva Colalillo, with the investigation leading to today’s guilty plea.
