Federal authorities announced a Camden man was sentenced today to 140 months in prison for his role as a shift supervisor of a drug trafficking organization and conspiring to distribute heroin, cocaine, and crack in the city of Camden.
According to Federal officials, Christopher Vasquez, 32, of Camden, previously pleaded guilty in Camden federal court to an indictment charging him with conspiracy to distribute more than one kilogram of heroin, more than 280 grams of crack cocaine, and unknown quantities of cocaine and fentanyl.
Court documents state Vazquez admitted that he was a “shift manager” in a drug-trafficking organization operating in the 400-500 block of Pine Street in Camden, supervising and directing the street-level sellers who were involved in distributing controlled substances to customers.
Authorities say from January 2018 to November 28, 2018, he met with conspirators involved in the scheme and discussed the operations and management of the drug trafficking organization.
He also provided drugs to street-level sellers.
According to officials, all 19 of the defendants have previously entered guilty pleas on drug conspiracy charges.
In addition to the prison term, Vazquez was sentenced to seven years of supervised release.
