Last Edited:

The streets of Camden were made a bit safer following the indictment of seven gun trafficking ring members on numerous charges for illegally transporting firearms from Ohio to New Jersey.

On Wednesday, February 14th, New Jersey's newest Attorney General, Gurbir Grewal, announced that the gun trafficking ring has been stopped and residents of Camden can rest easy knowing officials are making sure illegal guns stay off their streets.

"Unfortunately, the residents of this city are all too familiar with the misery that these deadly weapons can inflict when put in the hands of gang members, drug dealers, and other violent criminals," said Grewal. 

"We cannot and we must not become complacent in our efforts. Each gun that we seize or take off the streets is a life or multiple lives that we safe in the process."

Grewal stated at least 30 guns made their way between the two states during April of 2016 through July of 2017 and were linked to numerous murders in Camden.
