The reputed "five-star general" of a South Jersey gang that distributed vast amounts of cocaine, heroin and PCP in South Camden today pleaded guilty to racketeering in connection with the drug ring.

Kyle "Whop" Ogletree, 29, of Cherry Hill was leader of the G-Shine Bloods and allegedly ran the organization with his Philadelphia-based uncle. Before Superior Court Judge Samuel D. Natal in Camden, Ogletree admitted he led the enterprise that distributed the drugs and that he personally distributed large amounts of cocaine and PCP, according to New Jersey Attorney General Jeffrey S. Chiesa.

"As a local Bloods leader and the head of a major drug network, this man was at the center of the narcotics and gang activity fueling gun violence in South Camden," said Chiesa. "With this plea, we have ensured that he will remain off the street and behind bars for many years."

In addition to the drug charges, Ogletree also admitted to possessing a handgun in the course of a narcotics offense and money laundering. Sentencing is scheduled for April 5.
