A Camden man who sold crack cocaine to an undercover police officer was sentenced Tuesday to eight years in prison, officials said. Nafeez “Feez” Griffin, 31, will also be subjected to three years of supervised release after finishing his sentence, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said in a statement.
Griffin was part of a drug dealing organization when he sold the narcotics on Lansdowne Avenue in the city on Nov. 30, 2015, authorities said. He was charged Sept. 9, 2016 after a lengthy investigation by the FBI’s South Jersey Violent Offender and Gang Task Force.
He pleaded guilty in June to distribution and possession with intent to distribute cocaine.
Fellow members of the crew supplied drugs to Griffin and he made separate crack deals, according to court filings.
Authorities said the investigation led law enforcement officers to seize two handguns used by members of the drug distribution crew as well as narcotics. Investigators also used court-approved wiretaps to intercept cell phones used by members of the ring.
