Authorities in Atlantic County announced that on Monday, December 4, Robert Gunter, 40, of Galloway Township, was sentenced by the Honorable Donna M. Taylor, J.S.C, to an aggregate extended term of 10 years in New Jersey State Prison with four years of parole ineligibility after pleading guilty to second-degree possession of fentanyl with intent to distribute.


Officials stated Gunther was enrolled in Recovery Court at the time he possessed the fentanyl with the intent to distribute it, and the State successfully opposed his application to re-enroll in Recovery Court rather than serve a State Prison sentence.

Gunter’s codefendant, Ibin Ingrum, now 20, also of Galloway Township, was previously sentenced on charges of second-degree possession of fentanyl with intent to distribute and second-degree unlawful possession of a community gun, officials said.

Authorities say the Court sentenced Ingrum to an aggregate sentence of seven years in New Jersey State Prison subject to 42 months of parole ineligibility under the Graves Act.

Officials said the convictions of Ingrum and Gunter arose from a residential search warrant executed in Galloway Township in July 2022.

Ad According to officials, in an upstairs bedroom of the residence, the police found a safe that contained a mixture of over three ounces of fluorofentanyl, despropionyl fluorofentanyl, fluorophenethyl 4-ANPP, and xylazine.

Additionally, officials say, inside the safe, the police located ten wax folds packaged for sale, which contained a mixture of fluoro-fentanyl, fentanyl, phenethyl 4-ANPP, and xylazine.

Authorities say it also contained a baggie containing approximately one ounce of methamphetamine, two digital scales, and documents bearing the names of Ingrum and Gunter.

In the upstairs and attic area of the residence, police located two handguns, ammunition, and extended-capacity magazines, officials said.
