ATLANTIC CITY – An Atlantic City woman has been indicted on charges for drug distribution that resulted in a death, announced US Attorney Craig Carpenito.
Rajeri Curry, 30, is charged by indictment with one count of distribution of heroin and fentanyl that resulted in a death, one count of conspiracy to distribute heroin and one count of possession with the intent to distribute heroin.
Curry was charged by complaint in March 2019 and has been detained without bail.
According to documents filed in this case, on June 1, 2018, Curry distributed a substance containing heroin and fentanyl to an individual who later died from using the substance.
The 30-year old victim was found by law enforcement inside a vehicle in the parking lot of an Atlantic City restaurant. Also inside the vehicle were multiple wax folds that contained heroin and fentanyl and were stamped with the words “BODY COUNT.”
Shortly before the victim’s death, surveillance footage caught Curry distributing narcotics to the victim.
Curry is facing a maximum punishment of life in prison and a fine of $1 million for the drug distribution resulting in death charge. The other counts are each punishable by a maximum of 20 years in prison.
