Crack dealer gets 8 years for racketeering

Posted: April 13, 2012

A street-level drug dealer who worked for two narcotics networks that distributed large amounts of cocaine and heroin in South Jersey was sentenced today to eight years in prison.

Carlton Riley Jr., 21, of Camden, admitted he served as a "trapper," selling crack cocaine for two rings that were later targeted by investigations code-named Operation City Wide and Operation Jumpstart.

Operation City Wide broke up a South Camden-based gang that authorities said was headed by Kyle Ogletree of Cherry Hill, a reputed five-star general in the G-Shine Bloods.

Riley pleaded guilty March 2 to a charge of racketeering, said Peter Aseltine, spokesman for the New Jersey Attorney General's office. Riley also pleaded to selling cocaine within 1,000 feet of a school.

More than 42 members of the drug rings were indicted in November and December following a N.J. Division of Criminal Justice investigation.
