MAY LANDING — An Egg Harbor Township man pleaded guilty to first-degree strict liability drug-induced death and acting as the leader of a narcotics trafficking network, Atlantic County Prosecutor Damon G. Tyner said Tuesday.

Jamal Campos, 25, was arrested Aug. 15 at the Bayview Inn & Suites on Albany Avenue after an investigation into the April 22, 2016, overdose death of Adam O’Gara, 42, the Prosecutor’s Office said.

Tyner said the fatal substance, fentanyl, was distributed by Campos.

During a search of motel’s 80 rooms, authorities seized cash, narcotics and Airsoft guns. A 3-foot-long alligator also was found in the motel’s swimming pool.

Campos is scheduled for sentencing June 21.
