GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — The home on the 500 block of Lydia Street NE in Grand Rapids looks unassuming.
But according to a federal complaint, the quiet home was actually a stash house – part of a heroin distribution system for months.
Now the man behind it all is facing federal charges – and telling investigators about how he sold drugs for two decades.
Ahmed Green, 41, is charged with conspiracy to delivery heroin and felony firearms possession.
He waived his preliminary hearing on Monday.
On February 12, members of the Drug Enforcement Agency and the Kent Area Narcotics Enforcement team searched both the home on Lydia Street, as well as Green’s home on the 800 block of Burton Street SE.
Two handguns were found at Green’s home. He told investigators he got them as payment for his heroin sales.
While detained, Green admitted to selling about $2,000 worth of heroin daily – and that he got his supply from a dealer in Detroit. He also admitted to receiving anywhere between 130 and 150 grams of heroin twice every 10 days for the last 18 months. Investigators determined that Green has sold more than seven kilograms of the drug during that time.
As for the house on Lydia Street?
Investigators found 102 grams of heroin inside, along with a woman living there. She admitted to storing drugs for Green at the home for several months.
Green was arrested again on May 29 while he was collecting $2,000 for a heroin deal. Another handgun was found after a search of his home that day.
The Detroit native has been convicted of drug delivery on six different occassions since 1991.
He’s being held without bond until his next court date.
