MORRIS COUNTY — Kenneth Calvey Jr., a 21-year-old resident of Victory Gardens Borough in Morris County, has been sentenced to five years in New Jersey State Prison with a 42-month period of parole ineligibility. The Honorable Stephen J. Taylor, P.J.Cr. handed down the sentence following Calvey Jr.’s guilty plea to second-degree possession of a firearm while committing a controlled, dangerous substance offense.

The sentencing stems from an investigation conducted by the Morris County Narcotics Task Force, which led to the authorization of a search warrant for Calvey Jr.’s residence. The search yielded significant evidence, including $6,908 in cash, nearly one pound of raw marijuana, multiple THC vapes, drug distribution paraphernalia, a double-barrel long gun, a handgun with a loaded magazine, and additional ammunition.

Morris County Prosecutor Robert J. Carroll expressed his gratitude to the agencies involved in the Narcotics Task Force, including the Dover Police Department, Morris County Sheriff’s Office, Randolph Police Department, and Roxbury Police Department. The Morris County Sheriff’s Office K-9 unit also contributed to the investigation.

The sentencing highlights the commitment of law enforcement agencies to combat drug-related offenses and the illegal possession of firearms, ensuring the safety and well-being of the community.
