TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - A California man has admitted shipping large amounts of drugs to a large-scale trafficking ring in southern New Jersey.

Federal prosecutors in New Jersey say 31-year-old Marlon Ramos, of Redlands, pleaded guilty Wednesday to conspiracy to distribute heroin and cocaine. He faces up to 40 years in prison and a $5 million fine when he’s sentenced Dec. 17.

Prosecutors say Ramos supplied the drugs to the trafficking ring known as the Britt-Young DTO, which was based in the Jersey Shore.

Between November 2013 and March 2014, Ramos conspired to ship large quantities of heroin and cocaine from California to New Jersey. The New Jersey conspirators then repackaged the drugs for distribution to others and deposited cash into bank accounts provided by the California suppliers.
