Over three dozen alleged members of two notorious street gangs in Southeast Wisconsin are indicted by the State Justice Department on various drug related offenses in the City of Racine in a crackdown on mid-level street dealers. FBI Assistant Special Agent-In-Charge G. B. Jones says involved a lot of collaboration with local law enforcement.
Assistant Racine Police Chief Steve Hurley says the bust is due in part to information provided by citizens’ phone calls about illicit activity.
Racine County District Attorney Mike Nieskes says there’s still a lot more to be done in this fight against drugs & gangs.
Seven of those 41 named in the indictments are still at large. Each defendant, If convicted, faces 10-years to life in prison.
