0 86

Jermaine Greene, 42, of the Bronx, has been charged in Manhattan federal court with firearms and narcotics offenses related to an incident at the Fordham Road Station on March 28, located at W Fordham Road and Jerome Avenue in University Heights, Bronx.

The charges stem from an incident where NYPD officers observed Greene entering the Fordham Road Station without paying a fare at 5:37 p.m. on March 28. Upon entering, Greene proceeded to the southbound subway platform, where officers arrested him after discovering he was the subject of open arrest warrants.

During a search incident to arrest, NYPD officers recovered a privately assembled 9 mm “ghost” gun from Greene, loaded with 12 rounds of ammunition. After transporting Greene to NYPD Transit District 11 for processing, officers conducted an inventory search and found a plastic bag containing approximately 50 grams of cocaine, a scale, and several empty plastic bags inside a bookbag worn by Greene underneath his jacket. Additionally, a small plastic bag of cocaine was found in Greene’s pants pocket.

Greene, prohibited from possessing ammunition due to prior felony convictions, including a Delaware conviction for second-degree murder, was under court supervision at the time of these offenses.

The charges against Greene include one count of possessing ammunition after a felony conviction, carrying a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison; one count of distribution of narcotics, carrying a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison; and one count of possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime, which carries a mandatory minimum sentence of five years in prison and a maximum sentence of life in prison.
