CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) - Federal prosecutors say a distributor for a criminal street gang that used threats, intimidation and violence to maintain control of the illegal drug trade in Atlantic City has been sentenced to 10 years in prison.

Aree Toulson, a 26-year-old city resident, also must serve eight years of supervised release once he’s freed from prison.

Toulson was sentenced Monday. He had pleaded guilty to several counts, including conspiracy to distribute and possess heroin and distributing it within 1,000 feet of public housing.

Prosecutors say Toulson was a distributor for Mykal Derry, a leader of the street gang known as “Dirty Block,” ”Crime Fam,” ”3.6.6.12,” or “3.6.” Prosecutors say the gang controlled heroin sales through gun violence, including at least one homicide.
