The following is a press release from the United States Attorney’s Office, Northern District of Ohio. Court transcripts show, though the press release does not, that the marijuana came from Humboldt County (No photos of the defendants are available at this time:

Four Cleveland men were named in a 25-count federal indictment that charges they conspired to distribute at least 220 pounds of marijuana and 345 pills of Oxycodone, law enforcement officials said.

Indicted are Amer Jabir, 37; Ahmad Jabir, 22; Aymen Abdelrahim, 28, and Gerald Knox, 37. All four are charged with conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute least 100 kilograms of marijuana and 345 pills of Oxycodone between 2015 and 2018.

There are additional charges for distribution of marijuana, distribution of Oxycodone, and related charges. Knox is charged with possession of a firearm related to drug trafficking and being a felon in possession of a firearm.

The indictment also seeks to forfeit more than $2.1 million in cash, five firearms, a 2015 Range Rover, a $5,000 casino poker chip and miscellaneous jewelry seized from locations in Cleveland, North Olmsted and Chicago as part of the investigation.

Amer Jabir was the leader of an organization that brought hundreds of pounds of marijuana from grow operations in [Humboldt County,] California to Chicago and then Cleveland. The marijuana was hidden in secret trap compartments in vehicles that were then placed in the back of car haulers, according to court documents.

Some of the pills and marijuana were sold by Aymen Abdhelrahim, from a gas station on West 25th Street where Abdelrahim worked as a clerk, according to court documents.

If convicted, the defendants’ sentences will be determined by the Court after reviewing factors unique to this case, including the defendant’s prior criminal record, if any, the defendant’s role in the offense and the characteristics of the violation. In all cases the sentence will not exceed the statutory maximum and in most cases it will be less than the maximum.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the North Olmsted Police Department, the Westlake Police Department, the Ohio State Highway Patrol, U.S. Customs and Border Protection and the Westshore Enforcement Bureau. It is being handled by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Justin Seabury Gould and Robert F. Corts.

An charge is not evidence of guilt. The defendant is entitled to a fair trial in which it will be the government’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.

  • Ouch. Was that a butter knife?

  • Yikes! Lost their 2.1 million, and their poker chip… I wonder how long the sentence is for a federal trafficking beef…

  • DELUSIONAL LIBERAL

    Ahmad Jamir sounds like a middle eastern name. But not to be racial or anything I was wondering if the CA sanctuary state policy was being hidden under the pre-tence of hispanic populous only to realize it was also for the radical terrorist muslim smuggling drugs. I was also wondering when our ca government officials were going to be locked up under treason against our country like they talked about at the federal level. Any comments?

  • Me think you are a racist. It`s us against them, If this happened in Mexico and it was 4 white men going to jail, would you say “Brown Racist up against 4 poor White men” Fat lardo Mexicans with inferiority complexes, picking on innocent thin white people. I think not , you old hypocrite, wake up this is not and never will be about skin color..

    • DELUSIONAL LIBERAL

      If your commenting on my comment I believe you blew past the orbit, I was talking about the other illegal immigrants, the muslims and the radical muslims. But that’s ok I know you want to get blown up in a car bomb.

  • To paraphrase Neil Young, Four Down in Ohio!!! Sorry I couldn’t resist!!!

  • Pretty good transport system. Guess somebody couldn’t keep his mouth shut? Impressing a woman or something equally stupid? Got to keep professional and everything is need-to-know basis. Now you are screwed!

  • Honeydew Bridge C.H.U.M.P.

    Credit given for not driving through Texas and most likely going through Utah around the sunrise hours.

    Hope the feds root out the properties it was grown on and even more Caliphate members are brought to justice.

    • If the authorities have documentation of the transport system they most likely also have recorded conversations with the source of the lettuce up here in the Caliphate stronghold. Expect some local busts to be announced. They should raze and blaze all structures on any associated properties as a warning to others. Strong action is needed.

  • Why did not he cash his poker chip in

    • Honeydew Bridge C.H.U.M.P.

      Prolly a trophy of a wild time with weed, gambling, and hookers…

      If you’re stashing 2.1 million that chip isn’t even pocket change.

      Marijuana growers spend more buying solid gold bongs, or having their favorite pit bull cast in gold to celebrate destruction of nature and communities.

      Thankfully the price has dropped or solid gold growdozers would become fashion.

  • No one told them that only people who are already rich are allowed to profit from cannabis.
