U.S. Attorney's Office, District of New Jersey

NEWARK, N.J. – An Essex County, New Jersey, man was sentenced today to 30 months in prison for being a felon in possession of two firearms, and for distributing heroin and cocaine base, Acting U.S. Attorney Rachael A. Honig announced.

Aughkay L. Green, a/k/a “K-Boogie,” 50, of Newark, previously pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Katharine S. Hayden to a three-count indictment charging him with possession of heroin and cocaine base with intent to distribute and with being a felon in possession of numerous firearms and ammunition.

According to documents filed in this case and statements made in court:

On Jan. 12, 2017, Green sold 25 bricks – later determined to be 38 grams – of heroin to “Individual 1,” for $1,200. On March 22, 2017, Green sold Individual 1 48.9 grams of crack cocaine for $2,250. Green was under law enforcement surveillance and observed to be dressed in his Newark Parking Authority uniform.

On April 1, 2017, Green, accompanied by an unidentified male associate, met Individual 1 in Irvington, New Jersey, where Green’s associate provided Individual 1 with: (1) a Smith and Wesson Model 21 .44 caliber handgun; (2) a Smith and Wesson Model 15 .38 handgun, and (3) 50 rounds of hollow-point .44 caliber ammunition marked “44 REM MAG FC.” Green’s associate received $1,360 from Individual 1, and subsequently provided Green with proceeds from the sale and discussed using these proceeds for the purchase of narcotics.

In addition to the prison term, Judge Hayden sentenced Green to three years of supervised release.

Acting U.S. Attorney Honig credited special agents of the FBI and task force officers of the Joint Terrorism Task Force, under the direction of Special Agent in Charge George M. Crouch Jr. in Newark.

The government is represented by Assistant U.S. Attorney Dean C. Sovolos of the U.S. Attorney’s Office National Security Unit.
