CAMDEN, N.J. (CBS) - An admitted drug dealer from Camden was sentenced to 14 years in prison Friday.
New Jersey Attorney General Jeffery Chiesa says Reynel Delvalle, 36, fessed up to distributing large quantities of heroin in Camden as well as selling an M-1 assault rifle to an undercover cop.
“This defendant was selling both narcotics and guns – the key catalysts driving the violence in Camden,” said Chiesa. “We’ll continue to lead multi-agency investigations like Operation Jumpstart in order to take aim at the drug dealers and gun traffickers most responsible for the violence in our urban centers in New Jersey.”
Delvalle is not eligible for parole for at least 12 years. He is one of 28 defendants who were arrested during Operation Jumpstart in December 2011.
