A 31-year-old Bridgeport man pleaded guilty on Wednesday, Feb. 28, in Hartford federal court to one count of conspiracy to distribute and to possess with intent to distribute one kilogram or more of heroin, according to John H. Durham, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut.

According to court documents and statements made in court, Green was a member of a Bridgeport-based heroin trafficking organization that, between approximately April 2015 and March 2017, received at least 30 kilograms of heroin that had been transported from Mexico, and then distributed the drug in the Bridgeport area. The investigation, which included multiple controlled purchases of heroin from Green, revealed that Green distributed more than three kilograms of heroin to his own customers.

On March 16, 2017, a grand jury in Hartford returned an indictment charging Green and six other individuals with heroin trafficking and related offenses. Green was arrested on March 24, 2017.

Green is scheduled to be sentenced by U.S. District Judge Vanessa L. Bryant on June 20, at which time he faces a maximum term of imprisonment of life.

This matter is being investigated by the FBI’s Bridgeport Safe Streets Task Force, DEA’s Bridgeport High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area Task Force, and Bridgeport Police Department. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Joseph Vizcarrondo and Alina Reynolds.
