Suspected Heroin Trafficker Gets 2 to 5 Years on Gun Charge

November 9, 2016


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Contact: Thomas Gannon, 215.348.6461, tcgannon@buckscounty.org

A man awaiting trial in New Jersey on heroin trafficking charges was sentenced today in Bucks County Common Pleas Court to serve two to five years in state prison for a related gun offense.

Ricardo Moise, 27, of Ewing, N.J., pleaded guilty to charges that he possessed a firearm illegally because of his extensive criminal record.

Deputy District Attorney Thomas Gannon, who prosecuted the case, said that Moise’s record includes three felony convictions in New Jersey for drug-dealing and gun offenses. Those convictions make it illegal for Moise to possess a gun in Pennsylvania.

Moise was arrested in Trenton on June 2 by members of the Special Investigations Unit of the Mercer County Prosecutor’s Office. He faces charges alleging that a car he was driving contained two guns and a large amount of heroin and cash.

A subsequent search was conducted by Middletown Township Police and Bucks County Detectives at a Middletown apartment where Moise had been living at the time of his arrest. Investigators found numerous documents in Moise’s name related to the vehicle in which the heroin allegedly was found, as well as a loaded, 9mm Beretta semiautomatic pistol.

The gun had been reported stolen in North Myrtle Beach, S.C. As part of a plea agreement, a charge of receiving stolen property was dropped, and Moise was sentenced to five years of concurrent probation on the firearms charge.

Bucks County Judge Diane E. Gibbons accepted the plea agreement, but rejected Moise’s request that his sentence be delayed for two weeks to enable him to get his affairs in order. Gibbons said his criminal history, the length of his sentence and the public’s need for protection demanded that he be imprisoned immediately.

Moise is scheduled for trial Dec. 23 in Trenton on the New Jersey charges.

Approved for release by Marc Furber, Deputy District Attorney.

    Such criminals must be charged with high punishment. The various criminals are involved into criminal activates and doing dangerous things. The police must capture those criminals and do their work with honesty. Thanks for sharing this case information in detail on your writing papers for college website.
