GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) -- A Grand Rapids man is facing federal drug charge after investigators say he admitted to selling heroin in Kent County for the last 20 years.

Ahmed Green, 40, is charged with conspiracy to distribute more than one kilogram of heroin and two counts of being an armed career criminal.

Members of the Kent Area Narcotics Enforcement Team (KANET) and U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) began investigating Green early this year, with agents saying Green was identified as "a large scale heroin trafficker" operating in the Grand Rapids area.

According to agents, Green and his co-conspirators were traveling to Detroit to get the heroin they sold in the Grand Rapids area.  They say Green and his associates were able to distribute between 14 and 20 kilograms of heroin in West Michigan over the past 18 months.

Green was arrested Wednesday at his home in the 800 block of Burton Street SE, while he was allegedly picking up $2,000 to be used to buy heroin.

DEA agents say Green confessed to selling approximately $2,000 of heroin a day in the area for the last 20 years.  He reportedly told investigators he kept his drugs at a stash house in the 500 block of Lydia Street NE.

Detectives and agents seized 102 grams of heroin and other drug paraphernalia at the home on Lydia Street.  They also seized two handguns and marijuana from Green's home on Burton.

According to investigators, Green has an extensive criminal history, including at least drug convictions in Michigan and Ohio for drug trafficking.

Two women, Paris Wells of Detroit, and Markita Choice, are also charged with conspiracy to distribute more than one kilogram of heroin.
