Nineteen Gang Members Indicted By Feds
Nineteen defendants were charged last week with being members of an alleged street gang that engaged in attempted murder, robbery, attempted robbery and narcotics trafficking in the Bronx from 2010 until this month, April 2017.
The gang members, known as the "Slut Gang." according to the US Attorney's Office in the Southern District of New York, were charged with several federal counts each in an indictment handed up last Thursday, April 20, 2017, that led to their arrests at the 50th Precinct.
The gang operated principally in the Boston-Secor public housing development in the Bronx, the intersection of Dyre Avenue and Light Street, and in Co-op City, according to the indictment.
The gang distributed cocaine base, marijuana, heroin and ecstasy and engaged in robbery, including the armed robbery of a rival gang selling narcotics last August.
The Slut Gang waged war with rival crews, the Big Money Bosses, based on White Plains Road, and the 2Fly Ygz based in the Eastchester Gardens houses, according to the indictment.
