 CAMDEN, N.J. B A Camden man was sentenced today to 110 months in prison for conspiring to distribute approximately 900 grams of heroin in Camden, Acting U.S. Attorney Rachael A. Honig announced.  

Kaliel Johnson, 28, previously pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Renee Marie Bumb to an information charging him with one count of conspiracy to distribute heroin from August 2018 through November 2018. Judge Bumb imposed the sentence today in Camden federal court.

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

Using confidential informants, consensual recordings, over 40 controlled drug purchases, and several court-authorized wiretaps, the investigation showed a large-scale drug operation in the 400-500 block of Pine Street in Camden in 2017-2018. Street-level sellers were supervised by managers, who also resupplied them with pre-packaged heroin, cocaine, and crack-cocaine. Several firearms were recovered from different locations during searches by the FBI and other law enforcement officers when the defendants were arrested in November 2018. Johnson was arrested on Nov. 28, 2018.

In addition to the prison term, Judge Bumb sentenced Johnson to five years of supervised release.

Nineteen defendants were arrested on drug trafficking charges based on this investigation; 15 defendants have pleaded guilty on drug conspiracy charges and are awaiting sentencing, and three defendants are awaiting trial. The charges and allegations against those three defendants are merely accusations, and they are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.

Acting U.S. Attorney Honig 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 J. Driscoll; the Camden County Police Department, under the direction of Chief Gabriel Rodriguez; the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office, under the direction of Acting Prosecutor Jill S. Mayer; the Camden County Sherriff’s Department, under the direction of Sheriff Gilbert L. Wilson; the Cherry Hill Police Department, under the direction of  Chief William P. Monaghan; and the N.J. State Police, under the direction of Colonel Patrick J. Callahan, with the investigation leading to today’s sentencing. She also thanked the Drug Enforcement Administration, the U.S. Marshals Service, and the Department of Homeland Security for their assistance.

This case is part of an Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Forces (OCDETF) operation. OCDETF identifies, disrupts, and dismantles the highest-level criminal organizations that threaten the United States using a prosecutor-led, intelligence-driven, multi-agency approach. Additional information about the OCDETF Program can be found at https://www.justice.gov/OCDETF.

The government is represented by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Patrick C. Askin and Sara Aliabadi of the U.S. Attorney’s Office’s Camden Office.
