NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Two dozen reputed members of a Bronx gang have been arrested, accused of trafficking drugs and guns and terrorizing Mott Haven.
As 1010 WINS’ Carol D’Auria reported, the Murda Moore Gangstas allegedly controlled the area in and around the Moore Houses development. Those arrested have been charged with racketeering, drugs and weapons offenses.
“They fought with gangs operating at the Betances Houses, the Riverpark Towers Houses, the Millbrook Housing Projects and the Highbridge Gardens Houses,” James Hayes, special agent-in-charge of Homeland Security Investigations, told D’Auria. “So this was the most ruthless criminal street gang operating in the drug trade in the Bronx.”
