Camden NJ Cocaine Distribution LawyersA Mantua New Jersey man is going to be spending a long time behind bars after reaching a plea deal with federal prosecutors and pleading guilty to cocaine distribution charges in Camden, NJ.

The suspect, a 41-year-old resident of Mantua, was arrested in September 2015 and charged with running an illegal drug distribution business. According to law enforcement, the suspect oversaw an operation that sold crack cocaine on Pfeiffer Street in Camden, New Jersey.

The suspect not only ran an operation selling crack cocaine directly to drug addicts in Camden New Jersey, he also allegedly supplied other drug dealers in Camden.

FBI agents investigated the suspect and eventually determined that there was enough evidence to arrest him.

The suspect faced a number of drug crime charges and was going to stand trial in US District Court, but he managed to avoid trial by accepting a plea offer from the U.S. Attorney’s Office. The terms of the plea agreement called for the suspect to plead guilty to one count of conspiracy to distribute and to possess with intent to distribute cocaine base.

Cherry Hill NJ Robbery ChargesCherry Hill police recently captured a local man accused of robbing a woman at an ATM.

The theft incident occurred around 8:45 p.m. at the Navy Federal Credit Union on Route 38 in Cherry Hill, NJ.

If the suspect is ultimately convicted of robbery, he could potentially be sentenced to 5-10 years behind bars. That’s because N.J.S.A. 2C:15-1 classifies robbery as a second degree crime in most instances.

After being placed under arrest and charged, the suspect was transported to the Camden County Jail in Camden, New Jersey. He was being held at the jail in lieu of $50,000 bail.

The suspect, a 29-year-old Willingboro man, was identified by Camden County authorities after the victim provided information for a detailed composite sketch of her attacker.

Cherry Hill Bank Robbery SuspectLaw enforcement is attempting to identify a man accused of robbing a Republic Bank located in Cherry Hill, NJ.

The robbery occurred on Thursday, not long after the bank opened at 8:30 a.m. The suspect reportedly entered the bank, which is located along Route 70 in Cherry Hill, and handed a note to a bank teller. The note reportedly instructed the bank employee to hand over money.

After getting cash from the teller, the suspect reportedly left the bank and fled the area on foot. By the time Cherry Hill police officers arrived at the scene, the suspect was long gone.

The good news is that nobody suffered any injuries during the robbery.

The Camden County Prosecutor’s Office and the Cherry Hill Police Department are conducting a joint investigation into the robbery. Investigators have yet to identify the suspect. Law enforcement officials have described the suspect as a black male who is just under six feet and who has a large build.

If police can ultimately locate and arrest the suspect, he would probably face criminal charges for second degree robbery. Since the suspect did not use a weapon like a handgun or a knife during the theft crime, he would likely avoid first degree armed robbery charges. However, N.J.S.A. 2C:15-1, specifies that anyone who commits a theft while putting another person in fear of immediate bodily injury can be charged with a second degree criminal offense. As a result, the suspect could potentially be sentenced to as many as 10 years in New Jersey State Prison on the robbery charges.

Cherry Hill New Jersey DWI LawyersA woman was allegedly Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) when she crashed into a police car on a highway in Cherry Hill, NJ.

The suspect allegedly caused the DWI accident a short time after 1:30 a.m. on Route 70 in Cherry Hill, New Jersey. The suspect was behind the wheel of a green 1998 Chevy Malibu and traveling east on Route 70 when she approached a Wawa on Kingston Drive. That’s when the suspect allegedly moved into the wrong lane on the highway and then slammed head-on into a Cherry Hill patrol vehicle.

The Cherry Hill police officer tried to avoid the collision, but he was unable to steer clear of the Chevy.

The car crash resulted in significant damage to both vehicles and caused significant physical injuries to both the Cherry Hill cop and the driver of the Chevy. Both victims were transported to Cooper University Hospital in Camden, where they were treated for their accident-related injuries. Both victims were expected to survive.

Law enforcement officials said that the suspect was drunk at the time of the accident, so she now faces charges for Driving While Intoxicated. The suspect has also been cited for several traffic offenses.

Camden NJ Murder Defense LawyersPolice officers recently arrested a Camden New Jersey man accused of committing a murder at a local apartment building.

Police made the arrest just before 5:00 a.m. at the Ablett Village Apartments in Camden, New Jersey. The Camden County Police Department dispatched officers to the scene after getting an unrelated call about a dispute over child custody. When the Camden County NJ cops showed up at the apartment complex, they heard an argument on the second floor.

Camden County officers went to the second floor to look into the matter and found a man who had sustained a stab wound to the chest. The injured resident was taken by ambulance to nearby Cooper University Hospital, where doctors treated him for his injuries. Tragically, doctors could not save the victim’s life. He was pronounced dead roughly two hours after arrival at the Camden medical facility.

The victim was 27 years old when he died.

Camden County NJ police were able to capture the suspect when he allegedly tried to flee the apartment.

The suspect, a 33-year-old man from Camden NJ, has been charged with first degree murder. If the suspect is ultimately convicted on the first degree murder charges, he could wind up behind bars for the rest of his life. That’s because the NJ Criminal Code treats murder differently from other first degree felonies, which typically carry a maximum penalty of 20 years in NJ State Prison.

This was the 38th homicide in Camden NJ so far this year.
