Members of a violent Jersey City street gang called the "52 Hoover Street Gangsta Crips" were arrested

08:06 |

Members of a violent Jersey City street gang called the "52 Hoover Street Gangsta Crips" were arrested as part of a statewide anti-gang initiative throughout last week, according to the Hudson County Prosecutor's Office - several in connection with four murders of young men in Jersey City between April, 2007 and September, 2008.At a Thursday press conference in the Hudson County Prosecutor's Office, state and local law enforcement officials announced that 14 adults and six juveniles were arrested between Oct. 1 and Oct. 8, although not all of those were arrested in connection with the gang.A dozen of the 20 people arrested are alleged members of the gang, which police said operates primarily out of the Booker T. Washington Apartments on Fremont Street in Jersey City. They are suspected of committing crimes over the years not only in that housing complex, but also in the neighboring Montgomery Gardens on Montgomery Street and in other parts of the city.
There is no street in Jersey City called "Hoover Street," so it is suspected that the address comes from another area. The "52 Hoover Street Gangsta Crips" are listed on a website as a known branch of the L.A.-based Crips gang.The suspects were arrested between Oct. 1 and Oct. 8 as part of a six-month investigation led by the Prosecutor's Office and the Jersey City Police Department into gang-related activity.
A local daily newspaper quoted residents of the housing projects as being thrilled after the alleged criminals were removed.
