U.S. Attorney Philip Sellinger's office says,

Vazquez admitted that he was a “shift manager” in a drug-trafficking organization operating in the 400-500 block of Pine Street in Camden, supervising and directing the street-level sellers who were involved in distributing controlled substances to customers.

All 19 people charged in this case have previously entered guilty pleas on drug conspiracy charges.

In addition to the prison term, Vazquez was also sentenced to seven years of supervised release.
