Nine Indicted for Cumberland County Cocaine Ring
Nine local men have been indicted by a state grand jury for allegedly running a drug mill in Cumberland County.
State Attorney General Gurbir S. Grewal said Friday that "a state grand jury has indicted nine men in an investigation that targeted a large-scale cocaine distribution ring in Cumberland County. During the investigation, the Division of Criminal Justice dismantled a drug mill in Vineland, where they seized heroin and fentanyl, as well as assault rifles and illegal large capacity magazines."
According to Grewal, "The Division of Criminal Justice obtained an indictment charging Terrel Goodwin, 30, of Vineland, with first-degree promoting organized street crime. Goodwin, who allegedly was a major supplier of cocaine, is also charged with first-degree distribution of cocaine, along with George Smith, 58, of Bridgeton. Goodwin, Smith, and six other men are charged with second-degree conspiracy. Those six other men allegedly acted as “runners” for Goodwin, distributing cocaine to street-level dealers."
