Police have arrested 30 alleged Bloods gang members in early morning raids across the Atlanta area in a major sting linked to 169 felonies.
Two separate indictments were handed down to two different suspected Blood gang sets – the Ape (All Profit and Extortion) Gang and the Bounty Hunter Bloods.
They are accused of a string of crimes including murders, drugs offences and racketeering.
Cobb District Attorney Vic Reynolds said the arrests were a result of ten months of investigation and started with two separate murders.
He said: ‘Both of these gangs without any equivocation are violent gangs. Law enforcement has managed today to take a number of violent offenders off the street.
‘Law enforcement began the investigations of the murder cases a number of months ago and began realizing this was gang-motivated criminal activity, which led to the investigation of various other crimes.’
Police arrested 20 suspects at six locations. Some of those indicted – at least 13 – were already in jail.
Those arrested face charges of murder, racketeering, drug possession and showing gang signs on Facebook. More
This is only a tip of the iceberg. Hundreds of thousands are still roaming the streets influenced by the gang culture. Can you imagine the danger some officers had to face daily for this to happen because surely undercover was involved.
Every officer faces possible death every time they walk out to protect us but we only hear about the bad apples from the MSM. Bravo. Well done! Amazing job getting this many dangerous people off the streets.
