A Pennsylvania man who managed a scheme that moved cocaine from Puerto Rico into New Jersey and Philadelphia must spend a decade in prison and surrender a gun and pickup truck, a federal judge ruled Tuesday.

U.S. District Court Judge O’Hearn sentenced 51-year-old Jose Gonzalez to 10 years in prison during a hearing in Camden federal court. He is the second in case to be sentenced in the past two months.

Under a plea deal, Gonzalez was ordered to forfeit his 9mm handgun, a Dodge truck and $120,900, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said Wednesday.
Iran Soler, Gonzalez’s associate in the scheme, was sentenced in March to 50 months in prison. Both pleaded guilty at earlier hearings to one count of conspiring to distribute five or more kilograms of cocaine.
