Rickey Rice, 24, of Newport News, and 10 co-defendants were named in a 39-count indictment in March for their role in the “Dump Squad,” which grew from a national gang known as the “Bloods.” The gang operated in Newport News. The charges against the 11 co-defendants included murder, attempted murders, robberies, assaults, arson, witness intimidation, narcotics distribution and weapons violations. Rice pleaded guilty in April to his participation, specifically that he knowingly engaged in drug trafficking and crimes of violence, the news release said. He also pleaded guilty to maiming Tony Vaughan, who was beaten by gang members before being shot and killed, in the aid of racketeering activity. Three other defendants were sentenced earlier this month after pleading guilty to their roles in the gang. Ty Davis, 25, was sentenced Sept. 1 to serve 30 years in prison, and on Sept. 2, Twan Bugg, 23, was sentenced to 30 years and Samuel Bates, 27, was sentenced to 25 years. All three are from Newport News.Davis pleaded to additional charges of brandishing a firearm during a drug robbery and conspiracy to burn the Newport News Police High Impact Patrol Station, the news release said. Bugg pleaded guilty to an additional charge of discharging a firearm in connection with a crime of violence. And Bates pleaded guilty to an additional Hobbs Act robbery charge stemming from the homicide of Terrell Williams.
