Norberto Campos, 31, of Carteret, pled guilty to third-degree receiving stolen property in March. He admitted that between January and April 2013 he received the stolen items, including a 2007 Ford Econoline van, which was owned by a local plumbing company.
Jose D. Lopez, of South Amboy, supplied the vehicle’s contents. Lopez, known as “Cholo," was sentenced to 15 years in state prison in September 2013 after pleading guilty to participating in a stolen vehicle ring totaling more than $550,000, according to a June 9 press release from the New Jersey Office of the Attorney General.
Campos will serve nine years after pleading guilty to first-degree felony robbery in a separate matter. His sentences will run concurrently, according to the press release.
