Westchester drug bust leads to arrest of 18 alleged gang members NEW YORK (1010 WINS) --A police operation in Westchester led to the arrest of 18 alleged gang members on drug trafficking related charges, authorities say. 

Thirteen members of two Harlem gangs were busted on conspiracy charges in connection to gang activity and a retributive murder, prosecutors said Thursday. The probe was sparked by the slaying of 18 -year-old Jordan Barber in July 2015 outside a basketball tournament at the Polo Grounds Houses

Brooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez, together with New York City Police Commissioner James P. O’Neill, announced on June 21 that 18 alleged members and

Eighteen New Rochelle gang members have been accused of running a violent cocaine-trafficking operation that fell apart amid infighting and a yearlong police investigation.

Officials today detailed two indictments that were unsealed Tuesday against members of the "8 Trey Crips," or "E.T.C.," who are facing charges of conspiracy, attempted murder, robbery, burglary, and drug offenses.

Sixteen of the gang members are in custody, and two are still being sought, officials said. They were arrested on Tuesday with the help of the DA's investigators, FBI, Westchester County Department of Probation, and police from New Rochelle, Yonkers, Mount Vernon, and Westchester County.

Two days later, detectives say they went to Simmons home to arrest him and reported finding marijuana and MDMA in the home. Simmons was being held on $55,000 bail. Jail records didn't list an attorney.

Federal authorities say 39 white supremacist gang members were arrested in a gun- and drug-trafficking operation centered in Pasco County. They face a range of charges that include the sale of heroin, methamphetamines, cocaine and marijuana, and possession of firearms by convicted felons

Four of the gang members had been originally charged in a November 2014 indictment, and eight of them were named in a superseding indictment in February, officials said. Wiltshire was charged with fellow Yonkers residents Diondre Carlisle, 18 ; Mykai Davis, 19; Rakeem Flowers, 19; Cesar Munguia

This investigation, dubbed "Operation: Crip Keeper," included New Rochelle police and the Westchester County District Attorney's Office. The gang peddled crack cocaine, mainly out of a house at 110 Washington Ave. in New Rochelle, officials said.

Authorities were focused on the group's violence rather than its drug trade, but the drug business was a "means to an end" that led to charges related to the ring's dangerous tactics, said New Rochelle police Detective Lt. Brian Fagan.

Brandon Brown, a 25-year-old Bronx resident, worked out of the house at 110 Washington Ave., where one of the accused gang members, 29-year-old Ashley Jankowski, lived, officials said. Fagan said there would typically be five to seven gang members at the house.

Brown, also known as "Bones," is accused of fielding calls there from cocaine buyers and sending other Crips to make sales on his behalf. One of those Crips was Artez Jackson, a 22-year-old New Rochelle resident, officials said.

The relationship between Brown and Artez fell apart, though, when Brown was incarcerated at Rikers Island for a different case, and Jackson started to sell drugs directly to Brown's customers, officials said.

That led to Brown shooting at Jackson near Walnut Street and Washington Avenue in New Rochelle on Sept. 23, 2018, officials said. Police said Jackson was not hit, though.

The gang members often communicated in code over the phone and through Facebook messages, officials said. In Facebook messages, Brown bragged about a shooting that the gang participated in, and he compared himself to Elmer Fudd, a cartoon character who was the adversary of Bugs Bunny, officials said.

Officials said they recovered five handguns, a stun gun, and an assault rifle, as well as drugs, as they investigated the gang's activities.

In addition to Brown, Artez, and Jankowski, charges have been also been brought against New Rochelle residents Evan DeYoung Adams, 22, Gerardo Alvarez, 18, Keyonnie Davis, 23, Kody Fudge, 27, Eduardo Gutierrez, 34, Corey James, 23, Anton Morrison, 24, and David Shelton, 62; Mount Vernon residents Miguel Tarrant, 41, Jamie Martindale, 21, Jamier Starkes, 23, Sion Young, 27, and Eric Barnett, 38; Yonkers resident Ebbin Croft, 23; and Rye resident Jahil Ricketts, 21.
