Man sentenced in drug case


A 32-year-old Baltimore man was sentenced in federal court yesterday to serve 15 1/2 years in prison for conspiracy to distribute heroin.

Payton Green, who pleaded guilty in April, will also serve five years of probation after his release from prison.

On Feb. 16, 2005, police officers attempted to stop Green's vehicle and a high-speed chase ensued. Green's car struck another at 28th and Sisson streets.

Authorities found a black suitcase that Green was seen carrying earlier, according to court documents. The suitcase and another container held more than $200,000, the documents said. Six kilograms of heroin also were found.
