An Atlantic City woman was convicted Wednesday of multiple drug distribution offenses, Acting U.S. Attorney Rachael A. Honig announced.

Federal officials said Rajeri Curry, 32, was convicted of one count of conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute heroin and fentanyl and one count of possession with intent to distribute heroin, following a nine-day trial before U.S. District Judge Noel L. Hillman in Camden federal court.

Officials said the jury did not reach a unanimous verdict on the charge of distribution of heroin and fentanyl that resulted in a death.

According to documents filed in this case and the evidence at trial:

According to officials, on Jan. 17, 2018, law enforcement officers executed a search at Curry’s residence.

They recovered heroin stamped with “DOA” and “BODY COUNT,” which Curry intended to distribute to her customers in Atlantic City.

Between March 2018 and June 2018, Curry conspired with drug suppliers in Newark to distribute and possess with intent to distribute heroin and fentanyl.

The charges of conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute heroin and fentanyl and possession with intent to distribute heroin carry a maximum potential penalty of 20 years in prison and a maximum fine of $1 million dollars.
