State authorities say a Camden man who led a major drug distribution network in the city has pleaded guilty to racketeering.

Attorney General Jeffrey Chiesa says 34-year-old Luis Burgos pleaded guilty Monday to the first-degree charge. He says Burgos had large quantities of cocaine flown on commercial airline flights from Puerto Rico to New York and Newark that was then distributed in Camden.

Burgos’ lawyer, Donald Manno, says his client admitted selling about 10 ounces of cocaine to a person who was cooperating with law enforcement.

Burgos faces 10 to 20 years in prison when he’s sentenced June 7. He’s among 28 people who were indicted in 2011 in connection with the drug distribution network.
