Jamar Green’s job was to buy large amounts of cocaine in the New York City area and then flip it to a mule, who would zip it up the Thruway to the Capital Region.
Over the course of an eight-month federal investigation, authorities determined the New Jersey man was flipping crack and powder cocaine to Jaime Lee Toomer of Schenectady for redistribution. Green, 37, of Fort Lee, was arrested in April and later cited in a 29-count indictment alleging charges of conspiracy to distribute and possess cocaine.
Green was sentenced to serve 20 years in prison today, after pleading guilty to the charge earlier this year. He became the third person sentenced in the massive sting conducted by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, Federal Bureau of Investigation, New York State Police, the Schenectady Police Department and Schenectady County District Attorney’s office.
Co-defendants Victor Toomer, Trinelle Frye, Jeffrey McGough Sr., Koshon Taylor and Alexis Bass, all of Schenectady; previously pleaded guilty to the same conspiracy charge. Frye was sentenced to serve 10 years in federal prison Aug. 4.
Charges remain pending for nine suspects in the case.
