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.

Good work NJ Attorney General and cooperating agencies in Operation City Wide who've been work on this since November 2011! Now, when are we going to get serious about taking the power away from drug cartels, drug lords, gangs and thugs? LEGALIZE DRUGS! 'Soft' drugs first and 'Hard' drugs later. It won't be easy and the thugs won't like losing their money and power, but it can be done. No, I'm not a Libertarian but they've got this one right.
