State and federal authorities announced the shutdown of an international drug ring based in Jamaica which included two Vineland residents being arrested and charged in March.
The investigation, “Operation Next Day Air,” began in March 2011 to track large quantities of cocaine being shipped through public delivery services, police said.
Nine individuals have been arrested in connection with the operation, including Angel Rivera, 35, and Juan Cortez, 41, of Vineland, police said.
The Drug Enforcement Agency and the New Jersey State Police documented meetings involving the transfer of multiple kilograms of cocaine between four Jersey residents.
One of those residents, Marsha Bernard, of Cherry Hill, was seen delivering one kilogram of cocaine to the two Vineland residents, which the two hid in a secret compartment of Rivera’s vehicle, police said. A stolen handgun was recovered at a later time from Rivera’s residence.
In total, detectives recovered more than 26 kilograms of cocaine, worth approximately $780,000, two handguns, and more than $600,000 in cash, police said.
Bernard, 28, was charged as a leader of the organization, along with Andrew Davis, 34, of Kingston, Jamaica, and his brother Kemar Davis, 22, of Hollywood, Calif.
Rivera and Cortez were arrested and charged with possession with intent to distribute cocaine. Both were taken to Camden County Jail and bail is set at $350,000.
“This investigation gradually uncovered a complicated puzzle of money and drugs, and locked up the people responsible for injecting large drug shipments into our communities,” said Colonel Rick Fuentes, Superintendent of the New Jersey State Police.
The investigation was completed by the state police, DEA, U.S. Marshal’s Service, U.S. Postal Inspection Service, Cumberland County Prosecutor’s Office, Gloucester County Prosecutor’s Office, Burlington County Prosecutor’s Office, Cherry Hill and Los Angeles police departments and Division of Criminal Justice.

phantom no love neva deh deh nobody cannot tell me dat…..usually feds confirm a package by meeting the person whey a pick it up so all ina my mind from dat march dem did get ketch and a work fi bring in di big boss
Oh well…now wi know how flippa mek him money and was able to dash out so much.
Funny how everyone had him as informer
dis nuh prove he wasn’t…read good
Good morning Phantom n’ Servah :peluk :peluk…I’m just gonna sit back and watch this unfold cause I have a feeling that this trail ah bread crumbs is follow thru many states. This couldn’t have possibly been a 9 man job; so ridiculously sad on so many levels….and not one of them stopped to think about nor consider the well being of their children when it boiled down to the “what if” factor…what if I get caught, what will happen to my kids, who will care for them? What if I get killed, what will happen to my kids, who will care for them? What if my kids hate me for my selfish and foolish choices n’ decisions, will it be worth the heartache n’ pain that I’ve caused them? Some things I honestly don’t understand, serious ting :bingung
Yep, while in my br this morning I was thinking the same thing. I just can’t wrap my head around why Marsha would allow him to get her entangled in this web. I came to the conclusion that greed mek ppl duh anything, I guess as I mother I just can’t understand how she neva tink bout her kid’s long term well-being and wat wouldhappen if she guh a jail, a mean tings happen and sin a sin but mi nain a get mix up in it nopes
Still, something not adding up!
I really can not believe Marsha would have had this massive pint of product in the house where she and her kids lived. And yes dem fool and uneducated but most of the smart ppl who inna this business do not keep dance or tek photos at party like this. As many of times that flippa has been in chuble with the law weh mek di fool really come back? Hioka as we know seh u a read….did u loose the work inna the top retail store because of the conspiracy charges?
morning same so mi seh……something nah sekkle right at all
but one of the agencies credited with the takedown of this operation is the UPS so the goods might not have been delivered to her said address but indeed in cherry hill a di post office
Buenos Dias Metty Y Metters Y Bonita mi Corazoncita Zervah!
Quite a lot of them has taken up the flossing thing…..very few are low key make there money and keep their circle tight and quite. This happens when you want to be seen….Flippa was pretty talented why didn’t he make his money and legitimize before all this flossing. Marsha went along I think because she got caught up with the lifestyle…..so much more can be said, perhaps others can learn from this story, I as well.
Metty Flippa did not come back to face the music unfortunately, he came back to connect as his #1 and 2 were detained. His wrong move is that he continued to party instead of being ‘lo.
Quena mi ina mi kitchen a mek mi juice and a think di same ting……….why when dem mek a big money dem nuh open a business? Mi nuh think him come back fi connect and yes mi hear se him did a party..he same back fi turn in himself..notice a after dem hold him dem announce di charges? He nor marsha never had to be here dem cudda go home and do well for themselves
Long time….they could of been left. Music studio could have opened and chance instead of guns could have been given….he wasn’t the most talented but their are rising stars on my favorite little Island, dear God!.
The charges were announced after he was brought to N.J., they cannot give you a charge until after you are formally arrested, he was detained by Cali and arrested formally in N.J.
The lifestyle…..hell of a thing when you believe you are untouchable despite all of your going on’s.
Yes but dem neva announce marsha n di rest a dem charges either a dat mi a se ..Im wondering if he made a deal with them a doe know sah
I see I didn’t know that part. But people that want to genuinely turn themselves in normally head to the state you are wanted in,,,,,,they don’t usually give up in the Dancehall. Not to mention there is talk in L.A. as to him meeting people on the other side of the law. Whats gonna be more tragic the people that splashed the bottle water with you will not be there…..except the occasional “Big up Flippa Moggela” while they spill the ‘pagne.
They will because mi hear seh him did a pay nuff lawyer money fi some a dem ..I will write something on him tonight for tomorrow
Met, we people think dem can own de world if dem have money. Dem always want to prove them worth with material things.
Look pon de happle gal…she go so far as to film har self a carry white bag fi go clean-because this is the value she place pon her self and one she deem to be superior to those who nu have bag fi clean. Marsha looking all haggard in that old oman wig wid tears inna her eyes AFTA being caught dispensing cocaine and hoarding untold amounts of money.
phantom marsha rarely smile..we talk bout it so much here till back ina di day she did hand it to we pan a video…dem life rich and did sad

I’m lost for words in this day and age people still getting caught up like this?? Once America see you spending money certain way the first thing pops in their head, where is it coming from and is the IRS getting their share. Why you think when you going through the airport they want to know if you have more than $10,000.00 on you? That’s the amount that is taxable and they want their share. People with real money try their best to hide it and people with a lil money try their best to show it. Real husslers know if you live in the commonwealth states you stay lo for example, NJ, VA, DC.
The late baby daddy use to say one of us have to stay clean just in case. God rest his soul. When the FEDS pick up one of the players, they tell the baby mother we don’t want you all you do is stay home and have babies. They don’t need informat they do their work themself. We tell on our self by our actions. I don’t mean to ramble, I’m just shock.
Cherry Hill woman who ran the New Jersey operations of a Jamaica-based international cocaine ring was arrested along with nine others by New Jersey State Police and the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), authorities announced Thursday.
Marsha Bernard, 28, was a major player in the drug ring, authorities said, working closely with ringleader Andrew Davis, 34, of Kingston, Jamaica, and his brother, Kemar Davis, 22, of Hollywood, CA, to move large amounts of drugs between Jamaica, California and New Jersey.
A two-year investigation into the ring focused on the Davis brothers, authorities said, who shipped drugs from California to Bernard, who then dealt with lower-level drug traffickers who bought roughly a kilogram of cocaine at a time.
Bernard handled the proceeds from those sales and sent them on to Kemar and Andrew Davis, authorities said.
The investigation into Bernard and others connected with the ring started in March 2011, authorities said, when detectives and agents from the Camden High-Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA) Task Force, along with the Burlington County Prosecutor’s Office, seized eight kilograms of cocaine split into two packages at a mail facility in Marlton, which they said was destined for Bernard and Andrew Davis.
Over the next two years, DEA agents and State Police went on to document meetings between Bernard and others, including Sidonie McLeod, 28, of Cherry Hill, which authorities said were set up to handle moving multiple kilograms of cocaine.
Two Vineland residents—Angel Rivera, 35, and Juan Cortez 41—were arrested on March 11 of this year after Bernard delivered a kilogram of cocaine to them in Cherry Hill, authorities said.
Four days later, Bernard and three others, including McLeod, were arrested when State Police detectives and DEA agents executed a series of search and arrest warrants in Cherry Hill and Mount Laurel, authorities said, just as another large shipment of cocaine was arriving from California.
That same day, authorities arrested Kemar Davis in Los Angeles.
In total, detectives recovered more than 26 kilograms of cocaine, worth approximately $780,000, two handguns, and more than $600,000 in cash; while authorities said that was a significant bust, it only represented a small amount of the drugs brought into the United States by the Davis brothers’ organization.
Andrew Davis, who had been in Jamaica since leaving the United States in 2012, was arrested by U.S. Marshals in Los Angeles on Sept. 16, and he was extradited to New Jersey on Oct. 8.
“These international cocaine traffickers were using major parcel shippers to put their poison on the streets of New Jersey, where it fueled all of the secondary crimes and violence that are inextricably linked to drug dealing,” said New Jersey Acting Attorney General John J. Hoffman in a statement. “With this outstanding multi-agency investigation, we have ‘stopped shipment’ on this drug syndicate and made our communities safer.”
Andrew Davis, Kemar Davis and Bernard were each charged with money laundering, distribution of cocaine, conspiracy and leading a narcotics trafficking network, and were taken to the Camden County Jail on $500,000 bail.
Also arrested in the sting were:
•James McBride, 40, of Mount Laurel, who was charged with distribution of cocaine, money laundering and conspiracy, and was taken to the Camden County Jail on $400,000 bail.
•Angel River, 35, of Vineland, who was charged with possession with the intent to distribute and conspiracy, and taken to the Camden County Jail on $350,000 bail.
•Juan Cortez, 41, of Vineland, who was charged with possession with the intent to distribute and conspiracy, and taken to the Camden County Jail on $350,000 bail.
•Shelly Ann Brown, 34, of Trenton, who was charged with distribution of cocaine and conspiracy and taken to the Camden County Jail on $250,000 bail.
•Sidonie McLeod, 28, of Cherry Hill, who was charged with distribution of cocaine and conspiracy and taken to the Camden County Jail on $250,000 bail.
•Hioka Myrie, 33, of Philadelphia, who was charged with conspiracy and released on her own recognizance.
Seems people here are sad when the bad guys are caught…….i ask again when did it became BAD thing to earn an honest living? I say f**k buju banton, f**k vybz kartel, f**k flippa mafia and the rest of these so-called entertainers who err on the opposite side of the law!!!

Good Morning Ms Met, Zervah, Yep, Sweet, Loyalists and Peepers. Wait deh where is Chuety?
I personally know 2 men that WERE in the game for YEARS. One is now a Sports Medicine Doctor in California and the other owns 3 McDonalds in Washington State and 2 Apt buildings in Montego Bay where most of his Tenants are school Teachers. This may expose who I am but I don’t care because this is facts. They were lucky to never got caught while hustling, but while doing their hustling they both went to College/Med School and once they got their degress, they took the monies they saved and moved to diff States with their fam. The one that owns Mcdonalds also went to Burger or Macdonalds University. They were very low key guys, no flossing. I say all that to say some dealers are arrogant and stupid when they start make lots of money. Not thinking that that lifestyle can end any day whether by death or jail. Not every dealer flosses. But Flippa is a born flosser, him cannot help but to floss. Marsha mi under rate yuh, becausen mi di think yuh was a nun in some ways. Sidonie, I’m sorry for your baby girl and Marsha’s kids also. Dem gwine get some serious time. But mi still think Flippa is a informer. If yuh mek $600K why yuh nuh cut and guh thru. Dat mean sey Flippa answers to someone bigger. The $600K was not for Flippa, it is for the #REALBOSS. Flippa was the boss of his click, but there has to be a bigger higher boss somewhere. Watching and waiting for the end result.
