An Atlantic City man plead guilty Wednesday before a U.S. District Judge to a charge that he conspired to distribute heroin, U.S. Attorney Paul J. Fishman said in a release.
Jamir Harmon, 21, admitted that he was connected to the so-called Jamal Reid Organization, a group of eight men indicted, Tuesday, for distribution of heroin in South Jersey.
Harmon’s telephone was wiretapped by the FBI and the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office. They overheard him agreeing to deliver heroin, collect money for heroin and purchase heroin. Agents saw him meet with members of the Jamal Reid Organization, several times, the release said.
Five of the eight men indicted in the Jamal Reid Organization are from Atlantic County, including: Jamal Reid, 27, of Mays Landing; Courtney Broomfield, 25, of Atlantic City; Edward Brown Jr., 23, of Atlantic City; Nassaun Hines, 27, of Pleasantville; and Baseem Taliaferro, 26, of Mays Landing.
Part of Tuesday’s indictment charges the men with distributing heroin in Atlantic City.
Harmon’s charge is punishable by a minimum prison term of five years, a maximum of 40 years and a $5 million fine.
His sentencing is scheduled for October.
