NEWARK, NJ — A Newark Parking Authority employee arrested in November for distributing narcotics on the job pleaded guilty to the charge today, according to U.S. Attorney Craig Carpenito.
Aughkay Green, 49, admitted to possessing heroin and crack cocaine with intent to distribute as well as being in felony possession of two firearms. As far back as January 2017, Green was surveilled by law enforcement selling 38 grams of heroin to one individual and later sold about 49 grams of crack cocaine while wearing his Newark Parking Authority uniform, according to court documents.
Green and an unidentified associate met the individual they had sold the 38 grams of heroin to again in April, when the associate sold the individual with two handguns. The profits were provided to Green, who discussed using them to purchase more narcotics.
The Newark resident is facing five to 40 years for possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, up to 20 years for possession of heroin with intent to distribute and up to 10 years and a $250,000 fine for the firearms charges.
