Nearly a dozen members of a prominent Yonkers street gang are facing a series of charges for allegedly conspiring against a rival faction over the city’s drug trade officials announced on Wednesday.
Nine members of the Blood Stone gang were apprehended this week, police and county officials announced on Wednesday, with three more on the loose.
Following a months-long investigation, the gang members were arrested and indicted on charges that include attempted murder, conspiracy to commit murder and assault, police said.
Investigators are seeking the public’s assistance in seeking one particular suspect, Rahkim “Flee” Shealy, who remains elusive and is armed and dangerous, police said. Anyone with information on his whereabouts has been asked to contact the Yonkers Police Department by calling (914) 377-7725.
“These arrests demonstrate the power of collaborating with our law enforcement partners and our shared commitment to public safety by working together and removing dangerous individuals from our community. I believe these arrests have effectively dismantled this group and will have a positive impact on public safety and the quality of life to the residents of Yonkers.”
I’d like to send a warning to those who choose to engage in violent activity in our city, there are additional investigations that are ongoing as we speak, and we’re going to find you, remove you from our streets and hold you fully accountable for your actions.”
