Collingswood Man Guilty in Gang-Related Drug Ring
Jamarvis Green pleaded guilty to dealing cocaine in Camden as part of a major Bloods narcotics ring. He’ll learn his fate on Aug. 30.
A Collingswood man admitted Monday to his part in a Camden drug ring involving the Bloods gang that put large quantities of cocaine, heroin and PCP on the streets of the crime-ridden city.
Jamarvis Green, 25, pleaded guilty to second-degree racketeering and third-degree distribution of cocaine in Superior Court in Camden.
Green admitted in court to dealing for the drug ring and acting as a manager by transferring drugs and money to and from other dealers, plus the drug ring’s accused leader.
Green was one of 14 people named in a November 2011 indictment stemming from Operation City Wide, a multi-agency crackdown on the drug ring. Those indicted include the alleged ringleader, Kyle Ogletree, 28, of Cherry Hill, who authorities say is a reputed five-star general in the G-Shine Bloods.
Operation City Wide showed a hierarchy within the drug ring that used “set managers” to insulate Ogletree from street dealers, the New Jersey Attorney General’s Office said. Green acted as a set manger and transferred drugs and cash between Ogletree and the street dealers, according to authorities.
When he’s sentenced on Aug. 30, prosecutors will recommend a 13-year sentence, with no parole eligibility for six years.
The other suspects named in the indictment are:
- Yusef Allen, 24, of Camden
- Donte Cook, 31, of Camden
- Leon O. Holmes, 27, of Camden, aka “Teeny”
- Calvin D. Johnson, 20, of Camden, aka “Killer Cal”
- Keenan Ogletree, 30, of Camden
- Kyle Ogltree, 28, of Cherry Hill, aka “Whop”
- Damir Lea, 21, of Camden, aka “D-Money”
- Victor Matias, 29, of Pennsauken
- Kevin D. Owens, 21, of Camden, aka “Kev”
- Carlton Riley Jr., 20, of Camden, aka “Fat Boy”
- Lovell Venable, 34, of Cherry Hill
- Jonathan Woods, 22, of Camden, aka “Bud”
- Michael Woods, 23, of Camden
Charges against most of the indicted suspects are still pending. Ages listed are at the time of the November 2011 indictment.
