A Camden County man was sentenced to a decade behind bars on Tuesday for his role in distributing heroin in the City of Camden.

Acting U.S. Attorney Rachael Honig says 28-year-old Jose Agron of Oaklyn previously pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to distribute one kilogram or more of heroin.

Authorities say Agron was one of 19 people who were arrested in 2018 for allegedly dealing drugs along the 400 and 500 blocks of Pine Street in Camden. According to an FBI investigation, the group,

"included street-level sellers like Agron, who worked various shifts selling drugs to customers and collecting drug proceeds. These street-level sellers were supervised by different layers of managers who, in turn, supplied the drug set with pre-packaged heroin, some of which was mixed with fentanyl, as well as cocaine and crack cocaine. The FBI and other law enforcement officers recovered multiple firearms from different locations connected to the drug organization at the time of the 2018 arrests."

Seventeen defendants have already entered guilty pleas on drug conspiracy charges while two are still awaiting trial.
