Members Of Camden, New Jersey, Drug Trafficking Organization Sentenced To Prison

CAMDEN, N.J. – A Camden, New Jersey, man was sentenced today for his role in a crack cocaine distribution conspiracy, one of three members of a drug trafficking organization sentenced this week, Acting U.S. Attorney William E. Fitzpatrick announced.

Tony Wilson, a/k/a “Tony Langston,” a/k/a “Tone,” and a/k/a “H,” 25, previously pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Jerome B. Simandle to an information charging him with one count of conspiracy to distribute and to possess with intent to distribute cocaine base and one count of possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime. He was sentenced today to 96 months in prison.

On June 14, 2017, Jason Boyd, a/k/a “Teddy,” a/k/a “Teddy Reek,” and a/k/a “Fatboy,” 37, was sentenced to 96 months in prison. Boyd had previously pleaded guilty to an information charging him with one count of conspiracy to distribute and to possess with intent to distribute cocaine base and one count of possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime.

On June 13, 2017, Derek Stallworth, a/k/a “AK” and a/k/a “A,” 21, of Camden, was sentenced to 96 months in prison. Stallworth had previously pleaded guilty to the same charges for his role in the conspiracy.

All three defendants were sentenced by Judge Simandle in Camden federal court. In addition to their prison terms, they were each sentenced to five years of supervised release.

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

Wilson, Boyd and Stallworth admitted their respective roles in an organization that sold crack cocaine around the 1100 block of Lansdowne Avenue in Camden. Wilson also admitted that he possessed a .40 caliber handgun in connection with the organization’s drug trafficking activities.

Wilson, Boyd, Stallworth and others were originally charged by complaint on Sept. 9, 2016, following a long-term investigation by the FBI’s South Jersey Violent Offender and Gang Task Force. Law enforcement officers seized drugs and recovered two handguns that were kept by members of the conspiracy in connection with the organization’s drug trafficking activities. Investigators also intercepted communications pursuant to court-authorized wiretaps on cellular telephones used by several members of the conspiracy.

Acting U.S. Attorney Fitzpatrick 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 Harpster; the Camden County Police Department, under the direction of Chief J. Scott Thomson; the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office, under the direction of Prosecutor Mary Eva Colalillo; and the N.J. State Police, under the direction of Col. Rick Fuentes, with the investigation leading to this week’s sentencings.

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. Attorney Gabriel J. Vidoni of the U.S. Attorney’s Office Criminal Division in Camden.
