A 34-year-old man who investigators accuse of being a major cocaine supplier in Camden pleaded guilty to racketeering Monday.
Luis Burgos of Camden pleaded guilty to first-degree racketeering, New Jersey Attorney General Jeffrey S. Chiesa announced.
The attorney general's office says Burgos was charged after an investigation determined that he led a drug network that was distributing cocaine in the Camden area.
Investigators say Burgos had large quantities of cocaine transported from Puerto Rico to Newark and New York on commercial airlines. The drugs would then be distributed in Camden, investigators said.
According to the Associated Press, Burgos' lawyer, Donald Manno, says his client admitted selling about
10 ounces of cocaine to a person who was cooperating with law
Burgos is scheduled to be sentenced on June 7. The attorney general's office says he is among 28 defendants indicted in December 2011 by the Division of Criminal Justice.
