WASHINGTON –Daniel Greene, 41, of Washington, D.C., was indicted today by a grand jury in the Superior Court of the District of Columbia on two counts of second-degree theft stemming from the Sept. 16, 2023, package thefts from the 600 block of G Street NE, announced U.S. Attorney Matthew M. Graves and Acting Chief Pamela Smith of the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD).
Greene is to be arraigned on Friday, Oct. 13, 2023, at a hearing before a Superior Court judge. He faces a maximum of 15 years in prison if convicted of the charges.
According to the government’s evidence, on Sept. 16, 2023, at about 2:45 p.m., Greene approached homes in the 600 block of G Street NE and stole packages from the porches of two of them. He walked away and was stopped by members of the MPD while he was in possession of the stolen packages.
Greene has more than two prior theft convictions, though not from the same occasion, and therefore is subject to enhanced penalties for his alleged theft, including a mandatory minimum sentence of one year in jail.
This case is being investigated by the MPD. It is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Hannah Skopicki.
An indictment is merely a formal charge that a defendant has committed a violation of criminal laws and every defendant is presumed innocent until, and unless, proven guilty.
