Trenton man admits he was part of drug-dealing gang
TRENTON » A city man who was arrested as part of a massive crackdown on a dangerous, drug-dealing set of the Bloods street gang pleaded guilty Tuesday to conspiracy to distribute drugs in the capital city, authorities said.
Bobby Williams, 37, admitted his guilt before U.S. District Judge Michael Shipp, sitting in federal court in Trenton, to conspiracy to distribute and possess cocaine, prosecutors said in a news release. He admitted attempting to sell more than 500 grams of cocaine and possess 28 grams of cocaine base, authorities said.
He worked alongside codefendants Khalfini Richardson, William Enmond and Capitol T. Wellons to distribute and manufacture crack cocaine from two city residences.
They were among more than 60 people, some high-ranking members of the Sex Money Murder set of the Bloods, arrested last year following a two-year long investigation. The operation, which started on an anonymous tip regarding a drug trafficking organization led by Bobby Williams, led to the seizure of more than $1.3 million in narcotics, $25,000, two-weapons and five cars.
Complaints came in via the MyBlock website and anonymous tipline about narcotics in the area of Southard Street, in a case that was
cracked by numerous law enforcement groups, including the Drug Enforcement Agency.
Trenton Police Director Ernest Parrey Jr. said at the time of the drug bust those arrested were among the upper-echelon in the gang business alleged to have been leading smaller “splinter” groups within Trenton, Central Jersey and Northeastern Pennsylvania.
For his part, Williams admitted he conspired with the men to distribute nearly 2 kilograms of cocaine and other amounts of crack cocaine.
The charge Williams pleaded to carries a mandatory minimum of five years in prison and at the stiffest end up to 40 years and a $5 million fine. Williams’ sentencing is set for March 6.
Enmond already pleaded guilty and received a sentence of five years in prison in July, authorities said.
Richardson and Wellons have also pleaded guilty and await sentencing.
