A former Coralville attorney who eluded the FBI for nearly five years was sentenced to more than two years in prison on Friday.

ELIZABETH — A drug kingpin who evaded police for three years and was one of the FBI’s most wanted fugitives has been sentenced to more than 37 years in prison for running a large-scale cocaine and heroin operation in Elizabeth.

Elizabeth resident Luqman Abdullah, 35, must serve 30 years before he is eligible for parole on the 19 criminal charges a jury convicted him of in November, the Union County Prosecutor’s Office said Tuesday.

His drug ring netted him about $700,000 a week, authorities previously said.

Officials sought Abdullah for arrest after a five-month investigation led to the seizure on April 23, 2009, of seven pounds of cocaine, 800 folds of heroin, two handguns, an AK-47 rifle and other cocaine processing paraphernalia from a stash house in Newark during

How One Former Fugitive Visualized His Path from the FBI’s Most Wanted List to Community Champion

Malik Wade stands before San Francisco’s Sunnyvale projects he grew up in.

When Malik Wade closes his eyes, it often has little to do with sleep.

It is a vision, in numerous ways, that has come to be manifested. Nearly five years ago, Wade, an avid meditator, walked away from the gates of federal prison and began a life far different from the one that had him incarcerated in April of 2000 on drug and gun charges. The former dealer and fugitive who once
