NEWARK, NJ - A 21-year-old Paterson man whom law enforcement authorities say is associated with the 230 Boys street gang, faces at least five, and as much as 40, years in prison after admitting his role in narcotics operation that operated in the area of Rosa Parks Avenue and Godwin Avenue, U.S. Attorney Craig Carpenito announced Wednesday.
According to court documents, Tyson Jacobs was one of 17 Paterson men that, following the use of investigative techniques, including numerous controlled purchases of narcotics, consensually recorded telephone calls and text messages, physical surveillance, and the analysis of telephone call detail records, were determined by law enforcement to have conspired to distribute narcotics, including heroin and fentanyl from at least September 2018 through Oct. 1, 2019.
The original charges against Jacobs and the other suspects were originally announced in October 2019.
Sentencing is scheduled for November 23.
