A father and daughter in Billings, Montana face charges in federal court for allegedly operating a drug trafficking and distribution operation out of the home they shared, according to the Billings Gazette. Law enforcement arrested Gregory Green and his daughter Brittany after searching their residence following a controlled delivery of a package that Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents in Michigan found to contain over 1,000 Xanax pills. Test results are still pending on the pills seized by law enforcement agents.

Court documents show that this package originally came to the attention of agents with CBP as it was being transported via Canadian mail from an address in Canada to Gregory Green. Inside the package, agents found 1,471 green rectangular pills marked with S/90/3. According to, those markings are normally found on 2-milligram alprazolam, frequently referred to by the brand-name of Xanax.

Homeland Security Investigation agents worked with the U.S. Postal Inspector for Montana to arrange the controlled delivery. The U.S. Postal Inspector researched the package history for the address listed on the package and found approximately 112 packages sent from various addresses, including Canada, to that residence since December 20, 2017. After receiving a search warrant, the controlled delivery was made and shortly afterward, agents knocked at the door with the warrant.

Both Gregory and Brittany Green were home at that time. A living room in the basement and an adjacent room contained a large number of drugs and drug paraphernalia. In Gregory’s office, agents found evidence that he was selling the Xanax pills online to customers around the United States. From the office, agents seized several thousand Xanax pills, approximately 100 grams of methamphetamine, as well as other scheduled drugs and evidence. In the basement, agents seized approximately 122 grams of suspected methamphetamine, ketamine, carfentanil, and other controlled drugs.

Agents arrested Gregory and Brittany and transported the pair to Yellowstone County Detention Center. Both are being held there without bond.
