Authorities in Atlantic County announced that on February 13, Jason Cintron, 39, of Hammonton, was sentenced to 11 years in New Jersey State Prison after pleading guilty to first-degree Possession with the Intent to Distribute Crystal Methamphetamine.

According to officials, Cintron was the target of a lengthy narcotics investigation initiated by the Liberty Mid- Atlantic HIDTA Task.

Officials say a search warrant executed on Cintron’s residence in Hammonton resulted in the recovery of approximately one pound of crystal methamphetamine, as well as a handgun magazine loaded with hollow point bullets.

Another search warrant which was executed on Cintron’s Ford F150 truck revealed approximately 25 bricks and three bundles of packaged heroin (about 276.5 grams), a plastic bag containing about 57.4 grams of raw suspected heroin/fentanyl, and four bags containing a total of 25.1 grams of crystal methamphetamine, and $459.00 in United States currency.
