U.S. Attorney Philip R. Sellinger said a N.J. man was sentenced Tuesday to 48 months in prison for trafficking methamphetamine and fentanyl in southern New Jersey and Philadelphia.

According to federal officials, John Munson, 48, of Deptford, previously pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Noel L. Hillman to one count of the superseding indictment charging him with possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine.

His codefendant, Kevin Salmon, 26, of Philadelphia, previously pleaded guilty to two counts of a superseding indictment charging him with conspiring to distribute fentanyl and methamphetamine and distributing methamphetamine.
