A man from Camden County is headed to prison for his role in distributing massive amounts of methamphetamine.

Michael Venditti of Camden, NJ, Sentenced

39-year-old Michael Venditti of Camden previously pleaded guilty to a charge of conspiring to distribute 50 grams or more of methamphetamine.

On Thursday, he was sentenced to 171 months, or just over 14 years, in prison.

Federal authorities say from March through September 2021, Venditti coordinated an operation by which he received packages in the mail that contained over 100 pounds of meth, which he then distributed to others.

On September 20th, 2021, Venditti and his conspirators were met by law enforcement officers, who then searched a home and they found approximately eight pounds of meth, $29,000 in cash, and other drug paraphernalia.

In addition to the prison term, Venditti was sentenced to five years of supervised release and ordered to forfeit $29,433.

In a statement, U.S. Attorney Philip Sellinger thanked the numerous law enforcement agencies that worked on this case, including Homeland Security Investigations-Newark, the FBI's office in Atlantic City, the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, the U.S. Postal Service Office of Inspector General, and the New Jersey State Police.
