Two Monmouth Drug Dealers Sentenced On Federal Charges

assetContentTyshon Young, a/k/a “Young Money,” a/k/a “Young Boy,” 30, of Asbury Park, and Matthew Miller, a/k/a “Star,” 41, of Neptune, were sentenced to 21 and 36 months in prison, respectively today by U.S. District Judge Peter G. Sheridan in Trenton federal court for their roles in a large-scale drug trafficking organization responsible for distributing heroin and cocaine throughout Monmouth and Ocean counties, according to an announcement by U.S. Attorney Paul Fishman.

Young and Miller previously pleaded guilty before Judge Sheridan to separate informations charging them with one count of conspiracy to distribute heroin.

Miller has been in federal custody since his March 2014 arrest and has thus already served more than half of the sentence imposed by Judge Sheridan today, according to Fishman’s spokesman William Skaggs.   Young was in custody for roughly a month before making his $100,000 bail in early May of 2014, Skaggs said in a phone interview.

To date, 20 alleged members or affiliates of the “Britt-Young Drug Trafficking Organization” – so named after its leaders, Robert Britt and Rufus Young, in the criminal complaint – have pleaded guilty to narcotics offenses.

According to documents filed in this case and statements made in court: Between February 2013 and March 2014, Tyshon Young conspired with Rufus Young and others to distribute heroin in Ocean and Monmouth counties. Tyshon Young admitted distributing between 40 and 60 grams of heroin in furtherance of the conspiracy. Miller admitted that, between February 2013 and March 2014, he agreed to store between 40 and 60 grams of heroin at his residence for use in the distribution conspiracy.

In addition to the prison terms, Judge Sheridan sentenced Young and Miller to each serve three years of supervised release.

U.S. Attorney Fishman credited special agents of the FBI, Red Bank Resident Agency, under the direction of Special Agent in Charge Richard M. Frankel, with the investigation leading to today’s sentencing.

    21 and 36 months “for their roles in a large-scale drug trafficking organization”?? The Monmouth County Park Rangers impose stiffer penalties on people just trying to have fun in OUR county parks!

    I sure do wish one of our freedom loving “Republican” county freeholders would look into the way the county parks are being mismanaged and how the rangers have been directed to harass and ruin every park goers day at the park… a dog beach where the dogs can’t go in the water without a rope tied around their neck?? WTF.

    How do you get a street name? Do you make it up yourself or do your street friends give you your street name? If I ever get arrested, I want to be called Soup.

  4. username in use, please try again said at 8:01 am on December 23rd, 2015:

    sorry that username is already in use. You’ll have to fight the real Soup now because you’ve disrespected him in the community.

    On a related note, I feel like Wannabe-Soup here should be first to apply for a carry permit now to protect himself from the criminal he has disrespected; there is a justifiable need based on historical events. I’m applying because i dont want to be murdered over my new $55 Nikes. Thanks Mr. Christie!
