Former BOP Inmate Sentenced for Possessing and Obtaining Contraband in Prison


On February 10, 2022, a former BOP inmate was sentenced to five months of incarceration followed by one year of supervised release for one count of possessing and obtaining contraband while in prison. Johansel Moronta, an inmate at FCI Fort Dix, was sentenced in the District of New Jersey.  According to the documents filed in this case and statements made in court, on or about October 30, 2018, Moronta received a package dropped by a drone onto the roof of a housing unit at FCI Fort Dix which contained contraband tobacco, cellphone chargers and charging cables.  Moronta also admitted to possessing a contraband cell phone on that date, which he used to coordinate the drone drop.  The investigation is being conducted by the OIG’s Cyber Investigations Office with assistance from the OIG’s New York Field Office and New Jersey Area Office, the U.S. Air Force office of Special Investigations, and U.S. Department of Transportation Office of the Inspector General.
