An Atlantic City man who previously plead guilty to distributing between 100 and 400 grams of heroin was sentenced to five years in prison and five years of supervised release, U.S. Attorney Paul J. Fishman announced on Thursday, Oct. 25.
Jamir Harmon, 21, previously plead guilty to his role in a statewide heroin ring, Fishman said.
FBI Special Agents and members of the Atlantic County Prosecutor's Office provided audio evidence of Harmon's role in the ring, connected with the Jamil Reid Organization, Fishman said.
The agents overheard Harmon speaking with co-conspirators, agreeing to deliver the heroin to others, to collect money from others for heroin and to purchase the narcotic, Fishman said. They then witnessed Harmon meeting with co-conspirators on multiple occasions, Fishman said.
Fishman credited special agents of the FBI, under the direction of Special Agent in Charge Michael B. Ward; special agents from the ATF, under the direction of Special Agent in Charge Matthew W. Horace, in Newark; the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office; the Atlantic City Police Department; the Northfield Police Department; the Pleasantville Police Department; and the New Jersey
State Police with the investigation leading to the sentencing.
