Camden County mother and son accused in drug trafficking conspiracy

- A mother was arrested and charged, along with her son, for their alleged roles in a drug trafficking conspiracy.

Candace Gottlieb, 59, and her son Tyler, are accused of distributing counterfeit prescription opioid pills containing fentanyl and heroin, as well as cocaine and marijuana.

Candace Gottlieb, a diving coach at the College of New Jersey, is described on the school's website as one of the most decorated diving coaches in the conference. She was once the 'Division III Diving Coach of the Year.'

Court documents say Tyler was found at Philadelphia International Airport trying to board a plane to California with more than $67,000 back in March.

In the months that followed, FBI informants reportedly received more than 800 counterfeit prescription pills from them and seized more than 40 pounds of marijuana through the mail.

When their home and a second residence connected to Tyler were raided last week, agents reportedly found additional pills, cocaine, marijuana, guns--including an AK-47--ammunition and cash.

The College of New Jersey has not yet responded to a request for comment.
