Georgia Attorney General Announces Massive Gang Prosecution Success

According to Georgia’s Attorney General Chris Carr, a significant investigation into gang activity and drug trafficking resulted in the indictment of thirty individuals on more than three hundred charges.

On Tuesday, a jury proceeded to indict the almost thirty-dozen individuals on several counts against each of them.

“With our Gang Prosecution Unit, we are fighting to dismantle the criminal street gangs that continue to terrorize entire neighborhoods and our most vulnerable Georgians,” said Carr. “We recognize that these gangs continue to operate in Georgia.” When it comes to ensuring that those who participate in violent activities are forcefully pursued and aggressively prosecuted, we will not waver in our commitment to keeping people safe, enforcing the law, and ensuring that the law is always followed.

The inquiry, which was conducted by multiple agencies and began in February 2022, concentrated on the region encompassing Richmond County and the Central Savannah River.

This hybrid criminal street gang, known as Trap Money, was extensively monitored by law authorities, according to their statements. It was said in a press release that they are well-known for their association with both the Inglewood Family Gangster Bloods and the Nine Trey Gangster Bloods.

By the news release issued by the attorney general, the authorities have a strong belief that the thirty individuals conspired together to acquire money, firearms, and controlled substances in addition to engaging in illegal acts.

According to officials from the state, during the investigation, various agencies were able to confiscate a total of $492,733, 7.5 kilograms of fentanyl, 16 kilos of cocaine, 278 pounds of marijuana, 2 pounds of methamphetamine, 64 guns, nine vehicles, and two residences.

A large number of agencies, including the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Gang Task Force, the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office, the United States Postal Service inspection, and the Georgia Department of Corrections, took part in Operation “No Loyalty,” which was an operation to dismantle gangs.

Matthew Ploskunak, the Supervisory Senior Resident Agent for the Federal Bureau of Investigation in Atlanta, stated that “Augusta and all of Georgia is a safer place today now that this criminal activity has been disrupted.” “We will continue to make cutting-edge resources and expertise available to support our state and local partners, as well as to assist in identifying and dismantling these criminal organizations,”
