NJ Security Guard Caught Smuggling Drugs into Prison
Two people were recently convicted of smuggling drugs into East Jersey State Prison in Woodbridge, including a New Jersey Department of Corrections officer who worked at the prison. Apparently pulling off an operation that involved the Bloods gang and the Lucchese crime family, the two men brought cell phones, heroin, cocaine, and marijuana to inmates inside the prison.
The two men are awaiting sentencing for their roles in the smuggling, and are expecting to face at least five years of prison. Though they were eventually caught in their crimes, their example only shows how widespread and insidious drug problems are in New Jersey. Physical and psychological addiction to drugs help fund gangs, criminals, and crime families, and sometimes drug addicts don’t even realize that their habits have consequences beyond their own individual lives. If you have a problem with illicit drugs, you should get help now so you don’t fund criminal activity. The state of New Jersey remains troubled by widespread crime and drug problems, and effective rehab and treatment is the best way out of it.
Illegal drugs support criminal activity, and lead to more and more people being locked up in the state prisons. If you think you might have a problem with addiction, you should seek help before you support a tragedy. Thankfully, there is good help out there. Medications and cognitive-behavioral therapy have proven to be effective in treating drug dependence.
