10:05 | , ,

Patrick “Big Pat” Broughton; David “Demont” Ward, also known as “Black David”; Demario “Mazo” Baker; Demario “dee” Hasty; Marlon “Fish” Hasty; Lokheim Campbell; and James Luther “Nitty” McLean, also known as “Little Nitty.” Deputies, along with police, SLED agents, U.S. Marshals and S.C. Department of Probation, Pardon and Parole Services agents made the arrests in Bennettsville, Florence and Lumberton, N.C.Investigators said they believe the suspects are members of the “Down West Boys” street gang, based in Bennettsville, and affiliate themselves with Folk/Crip gangs, according to a sheriff’s office press release. It’s thought the suspects have acted together since 2004 to commit several violent crimes, robberies and drug conspiracies.“We feel that we have made a huge impact of violent crime today in Marlboro County and anticipate the development of new information and more arrests related to this case and other cases in the near future,” sheriff’s Lt. Jamie Seales said in the release.The suspects will be arraigned in federal court in Florence on Friday morning, where they will be notified of the counts and specifics of the indictment.“It is my hope that these arrests will wake up some of the younger gang members in Marlboro County and help them realize what a life of crime does to their future,” Sheriff Fred Knight said in the release. “I would also like to say that once again, teamwork and cooperation between agencies has resulted in more successful arrests and a case we feel will impact gang crime in our county.“
