Police Officer, Bloods, Crips Named in 219-Count Gang Indictment Accused
members of the Bloods and Crips street gangs, a police officer and two pawn shop
owners were among the 44 people indicted Tuesday on a bevy of charges including
racketeering conspiracy, attempted murder and drug and weapons crimes after a
14-month investigation into gang activity in New Jersey, authorities say. A
Monmouth County grand jury handed down the 219-count indictment after several
law enforcement agencies looked into gang activity along two dead-end streets in
Asbury Park in an effort they dubbed "Operation Dead End," prosecutors say.
Several of those charged in the indictment had been arrested during a large
sweep earlier this year. Prosecutors say that detectives discovered gang members
operating out of those two areas worked together to commit crimes ranging from
armed robberies and burglaries and drug distribution to coordinating shootings
of rival gang members.
