Takoma Park Man Pleads Guilty to Drug, Firearms Charges

A 42-year-old Takoma Park man pleaded guilty to heroin and firearms charges in U.S. District Court in Greenbelt, according to a statement from the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

U.S. District Judge George J. Hazel has scheduled the sentencing for April 5.

According to the plea agreement, Stanley Eugene Green Jr. and others sold and possessed heroin and fentanyl-laced heroin in Montgomery County from about February 2015 to April 27, 2017.

In August 2016, a confidential informant told officers with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) and Takoma Park police about narcotics sales in the city, specifically at 636 Houston Court, an apartment complex, the statement says.

Between August 2016 and April 2017, ATF and local law enforcement identified and investigated someone named “Rico” who was selling heroin, the statement said. Law enforcement identified “Rico” as Green, according to the statement.

In late January 2017, a victim who obtained heroin from Green suffered an overdose and required emergency medical attention, the statement said.  The victim fell into a coma and thereafter required hospitalization and physical rehabilitation, and was hospitalized for approximately 2½ months, the statement said.

As part of his plea agreement, Green will be required to forfeit the firearms and ammunition seized during the search of his residence, as well as the $37,592, the statement said.
