In New York City, dozens of suspected Bronx gangsters have been have been knocked in connection to a pipeline that pumped a variety of drugs into New England. Eighty-four alleged gang members were indicted on charges including drug trafficking, weapons possession and attempted murder. The take-down is said to be the largest gang bust in the history of the BX.
According to the authorities, a coalition of four crews, The Miami Ave Gang, Eden Boys, Ugz and Rgz, slung cocaine, heroin and lethal fentanyl OT in New Hampshire and Massachusetts. The cops say the outfit sold $10,000 worth of crack in New Hampshire on a weekly basis. They would, allegedly, use the proceeds to purchase guns and ammunition to bring back to NYC.
The network was described by Bronx DA Darcel Clark as an “alliance of evil.” He said that the outfit “carved a path of destruction from the West Bronx to New England, selling drugs up North for quadruple their street price here, and returning to the Bronx with firearms purchased up there.” Additionally, the outfit is blamed for 22 shootings, several of which were attempted murders.
As a result of the bust, law enforcement seized 16 kilos of coke, dope and fentanyl, as well as 15 hammers and more than $250,000 in cash. Fifty-eight out of the 84 listed in the indictment are being charged as major traffickers, meaning they face life in prison, if convicted. Investigators are still working to find out who was supplying the gangs with the guns.
