Jhana “Splash” Wilfong, 38, who was among 21 persons arrested  in an eight-month drug investigation led by the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office, faces up to 13 years in prison when he is sentenced next month, the paper said.

The suspect allegedly ran a cocaine distribution network from his girlfriend’s apartment; the couple’s baby was present for drug deals involving undercover investigators, according to the account.

Authorities have linked Wilfong to the Bloods gang.  Jetay Hutchins, 39, of Roselle, pleaded guilty with Wilfong on distribution charges last week, the paper said.
