Ocean County Prosecutor Bradley D. Billhimer announced that on July 8, 2022, Michael Klimowicz, 32, of North Brunswick, was sentenced to seven years in New Jersey State Prison.
This sentence is the result of his previously entered guilty plea to Possession of Marijuana in a Quantity Greater than Five Pounds but Less than Twenty-Five Pounds with Intent to Distribute in connection with an arrest that occurred in Long Beach Township on January 27, 2019.
According to Prosecutor Billhimer, Klimowicz pled guilty to the charge before Judge Ryan on April 12, 2022.
An investigation by the Long Beach Township Police Department revealed that a residence in the Holgate section of Long Beach Township was being utilized by Klimowicz to store and distribute narcotics.
In furtherance of the investigation, Detectives executed a court-authorized search warrant on the subject's residence on January 27, 2019.
As a result, Detectives seized roughly 11.5 pounds of Marijuana, additional quantities of other illegal narcotics, and approximately $9,300 in United States currency, Prosecutor Billhimer stated.
Klimowicz was arrested at the residence without incident; he was transported to the Ocean County Jail and later released as a consequence of New Jersey Bail Reform.
