NJ AG authorities reported that an Atlantic County man was sentenced to 170 months in prison for his role in drug distribution and possession of a firearm as a felon.

U.S. Attorney Philip R. Sellinger announced that Clay Brown, 30, of Pleasantville, previously pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Joseph H. Rodriguez to an information charging him with one count of distribution of methamphetamine and one count of possession of a firearm as a previously convicted felon.

Judge Rodriguez imposed the sentence in Camden, federal court officials stated.

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

Officials said Brown distributed methamphetamine and fentanyl on multiple occasions to a confidential informant.

According to officials, on the day that agents arrested Brown for drug distribution, Brown possessed a backpack containing a firearm and controlled substances that Brown intended to distribute to others.

Authorities say Brown has multiple prior felony convictions that make it unlawful for him to possess a firearm.

In addition to the prison term, Judge Rodriguez sentenced Brown to five years of supervised release.
