An Egg Harbor Township man has pleaded guilty to first degree Strict Liability Drug Induced Death and first degree Leader of a Narcotics Trafficking Network after he was arrested during the execution of a search warrant in August at the Bayview Inn & Suites on Albany Avenue in Atlantic City, Atlantic County Prosecutor Damon G. Tyner announced.

Officials said Jamal Campos, 25, pleaded guilty on Thursday to first degree Strict Liability Homicide Drug Induced Death, first degree Leader of a Narcotics Trafficking Network.

According to authorities, an investigation by the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office into the overdose death of Adam O’Gara—occurring on April 22, 2016 in Egg Harbor Township—led investigators to conclude the fatal substance, fentanyl, was distributed by Campos, who was charged with third-degree possession of heroin, third-degree distribution of heroin, and first-degree Strict Liability Homicide for the Drug Induced Death of Adam O’Gara.

Officials said on the morning of August 15, 2017, Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office detectives, along with law enforcement officers from multiple agencies, executed a search warrant at the Bayview Inn & Suites, which had been heavily damaged during Hurricane Sandy in 2012. During a search of the Bayview’s 80 rooms, cash, narcotics and air soft guns were recovered.

According to authorities Campos is scheduled for sentence on June 21st.
