No Bail Reduction for Accused Cocaine Sellers Busted in Morristown

Judge rules no change in amount for two Morristown residents and a Roselle man; two accused still on the loose.

No Bail Reduction for Accused Cocaine Sellers Busted in Morristown

A Morristown man accused of running a cocaine distribution ring out of his baby’s mother’s apartment won’t have his bail reduced, a judge ruled Tuesday.

Jhana Wilfong, 38, allegedly a member of the Bloods street gang, is being held on $400,000 bail after police arrested him last Friday after a five-month long undercover investigation dubbed Operation Splash Down.

Judge Salem Ahto in Morristown ruled Wilfong will have his bail stay at $400,000, according to nj.com.

Jetay Hutchins, 38, of Roselle, who is accused of bringing the cocaine to Wilfong, also did not receive a reduction in his $350,000 bail, the report said.

Tashia Davis, 26, of Morristown, who leased the apartment where Wilfong allegedly operated his drug business is also being held on $85,000. Ahto did not reduce her bail either, the report said.
