N.J. 'coke ring' painted as slick operation

The Jersey Journal

There was someone serving as a chief executive officer, a manager of day-to-day operations, suppliers and distributors, as well as warehouses and records, Assistant U.S. Attorney Dennis Carletta said. The only difference between the network and a bona fide company was that the network sold illicit drugs, he said.
