Rashaan Coles, 31, of Camden received a 7-year sentence today after admitting in Sept. 2012 that he conspired with others to distribute heroin, according to a news release issued by NJ’s Office of the Attorney General.

Coles pleaded guilty to second-degree conspiracy to distribute narcotics.

In Dec. 2011, Coles and 27 others were indicted on charges in connection with a large-scale drug trafficking network takedown dubbed Operation Jumpstart.

The indictment identifies Luis Burgos, 34, of Camden as the leader of the operation, where large quantities of cocaine were transported via commercial airlines from Puerto Rico to Newark, NJ and New York for distribution in Camden and the surrounding area.

Charges are pending against most of the other defendants.
