Wilmington Man Sentenced to 133 Months in Federal Prison for Selling Methamphetamine

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Delaware

WILMINGTON, Del. – David C. Weiss, U.S. Attorney for the District of Delaware, announced that a Wilmington man was sentenced today to 133 months in federal prison for trafficking methamphetamine and heroin. The Honorable Colm F. Connolly, Chief Judge, United States District Court for the District of Delaware, imposed the sentence. 

According to court documents, Martin Green, age 33, sold crystal methamphetamine to a confidential informant working with the FBI on several occasions between March and May 2023.  After searches of Green’s car, home, and storage unit, law enforcement found over 3.5 pounds of crystal methamphetamine and over 4,400 baggies of heroin.  Green confessed to selling both drugs in the New Castle County area.  Green had three prior state convictions for drug dealing. 

U.S. Attorney Weiss stated, “This sentence reflects Mr. Green’s repeated disregard for the rule of law and the severity of his crimes. Drug trafficking is corrosive to our communities. My office will continue to work with our law enforcement partners to prosecute those who choose to profit from illegal drug sales.”

“Martin Green is a repeat offender, who sold methamphetamine and heroin in Delaware again and again, even with children present,” said Special Agent in Charge William J. DelBagno of the FBI’s Baltimore Field Office. “Putting Mr. Green out of business and behind bars for the next 11 years is a win for the people of Delaware. The FBI and our law enforcement partners will not stand by while dangerous and destructive drugs are sold in our communities.”

The case was investigated by FBI's Delaware Violent Crime and Safe Streets Task Force, which is a partnership of law enforcement officers from the FBI, Wilmington Police Department, Delaware State Police, Delaware Probation and Parole, and New Castle County Police Department. The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Alexander Ibrahim.
