TEANECK, N.J. -- A Teaneck associate of the infamous James Bond burglary crew pleaded guilty to drug possession in exchange for prosecutors dropping charges against his girlfriend.

Jamelle Singletary will be sentenced to time served as part of his deal, CLIFFVIEW PILOT reported. He’ll also have his driver’s license suspended — probably for six months, according to his lawyer, S. Emile Lisboa. He was fined more than $1,000.

Singletary and Janay Cole were charged with three counts each of drug possession with the intent to distribute the drug after police said they caught them with more than an ounce of morphine on the property of Hoover School in Bergenfield.

Cole, a former Englewood schools lunch aide, has been arrested several times and has a prior drug distribution charge pending, CLIFFVIEW PILOT reported.

She was already facing charges of supplying addresses for potential burglaries to Singletary and his cohorts, and of having her 6-year old child in the room while she packaged cocaine for sale. when she was arrested in Bergenfield.

Superior Court Judge James J. Guida accepted Singletary’s guilty plea on Aug. 17 and agreed to the dismissal of charges against Cole, CLIFFVIEW PILOT reported. He tentatively scheduled sentencing for Sept. 25.

Singletary was one of five defendants who pleaded guilty or were convicted in the theft of a 600-pound safe from a Connecticut home in October 2012.

He was again arrested last December, along with three other men, in connection with a burglary spree that hit homes in Bergen, Morris and Somerset counties.
