Hamid was arrested and charged with three counts of Criminal Sale of a Controlled Substance and seven counts of Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance; he will be arraigned in Hempstead First District Court today.
In a separate incident, a suspect in the murder of a Long Beach man will also be arraigned in Hempstead today. Ramone Green was stabbed to death on Jerusalem Avenue in Uniondale on the morning of February 7 by two then-unknown male subjects.
A Month later, the Homicide Squad arrested 23-year-old Raymond Wade in connection with the murder. He was found in Westbury and taken into custody, and is charged with Murder in the Second Degree.
