GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) - A talkative heroin dealer is in federal custody and is spilling details about his 20-year career.
While most criminals clam up when confronted by the law, Ahmed Sherif Green did the opposite.
Green, 41, told federal agents that he was selling $2,000 worth of heroin every day in Grand Rapids. Green also told them he had brought more than fifteen pounds of the drug into town over the last year and a half.
He also admitted to a drug-dealing career that went back twenty years.
According to a complaint filed in federal court, Green gave that information to federal agents when they showed up at his house at 849 Burton St. SE last February with a search warrant.
24 Hour News 8 knocked on Green's door on Friday, hoping to talk to a family member, but no one answered. Green wasn't home because agents arrested him on Wednesday when he allegedly picked up $2,000 from another heroin deal.
Even though Green talked to agents in February, he apparently kept on working. Agents said they found guns and drugs at Green's home, as well as drugs at a stash house at 505 Lydia St. NE, all of which Green reported to them.
Green has a history of drug convictions, including one in Dayton, Ohio in 1991, one in Detroit in 1992, and four in Grand Rapids, including one in 2005, on in 2007 and two in 2011.
When Green was arrested in 2011 after a drug deal in the parking lot of the Last Chance bar in southeast Grand Rapids, investigators found only three grams of heroin on him. But even then, he reportedly confessed to just having sold twenty grams of the drug.
Green is now facing federal prison time, as are his alleged Detroit supplier, Paris Wells, and an alleged accomplice, Markita Choice.
The DEA, working with a Kent County narcotics squad, confiscated more than 700 grams of heroin, other drugs and 20 vehicles, including two BMWs and a tow truck.
Officers from multiple law enforcement agencies worked together Tuesday evening to chase down an alleged van thief, despite slippery roads.
A charity lodge where three people were killed back in September 2013 will likely never open again.
