Authorities in Atlantic County reported that on Monday, September 11, Ibin Ingrum, 19, of Galloway Township, was sentenced on charges of second-degree possession of fentanyl with intent to distribute and second-degree unlawful possession of a handgun.
According to officials, the Honorable Donna M. Taylor 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.
Authorities say co-defendant Robert Gunter, 40, also of Galloway Township, previously pleaded guilty to second-degree possession of fentanyl with intent to distribute.
He is currently incarcerated in the Atlantic County Justice Facility pending sentencing, which is scheduled for next month, officials said.
Officials say at the time of sentencing, the State has agreed to recommend ten years in New Jersey State Prison with four years of parole ineligibility.
The convictions of Ingrum and Gunter arose from a residential search warrant executed in Galloway Township in July 2022.
In an upstairs bedroom of the residence, officials stated, the police found a safe that contained a mixture of over three ounces of fluorofentanyl, despropionyl fluorofentanyl, fluorophenethyl 4-ANPP, and xylazine.
Additionally, inside the safe, the police located ten wax folds packaged for sale containing a mixture of fluoro-fentanyl, fentanyl, phenethyl 4-ANPP, and xylazine.
Officials said they also found 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.
The case was investigated and prosecuted by the Gangs, Guns, and Narcotics Unit of the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office, officials say.
