A Phoenix man was indicted yesterday on charges he was selling meth to a meth-dealing couple in the Boston area, to whom he'd ship the drug via Priority Express Mail, the US Attorney's office reports.
Greenberg was formally charged with conspiring to distribute methamphetamine and distribution of methamphetamine for the more than 20 meth-laden packages he allegedly shipped to the couple between November, 2018 and this past July.
Federal investigators looking into meth sales in the Boston area were led to Brandon Greenberg, 27, of Phoenix by two of the people who allegedly were buying his wares, a couple who both consumed and sold meth and who accepted his packages at residential addresses in Boston and Somerville - and who then either used regular letters or Western Union to pay Greenberg for more drugs, according to an affidavit by a postal inspector on the case.
According to the affidavit, the couple, both with criminal records of their own, agreed to worth with the feds to go after Greenberg in exchange for possible leniency in any sentences they might get for selling the meth Greenberg mailed them.
One of the first packages intercepted by the inspector had some two pounds of meth secreted in plastic bags, some wrapped in a towel, others secreted inside a stuffed bunny rabbit; another shipment had a little more than a pound of the drug in vacuum-sealed bags inside three boxes of cereal, according to the affidavit - which adds that federal agents found another pound of meth during a raid of Greenberg's Phoenix bedroom.
