Criminal Justice Online: Gang Leaders Indicted: "indicted James Alexander Mack, 25; Jamel Spaights, 28; James Martin Harris, 22; Arous John Phillips, 22; Eric Drandell Ward, 28; Craig Steven Foster, 23, all of Portsmouth, Va.; and Danyell Jamar White, 21, and Cameron Mychal Evans, 21, both of Suffolk, Va. on various racketeering, murder, firearm, and drug charges. The majority of the defendants will face life sentences if convicted.
Neil H. MacBride, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia; Alex J. Turner, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI's Norfolk Division; Edward G. Hargis, Portsmouth Chief of Police; Thomas E. Bennett, Suffolk Chief of Police; and Captain Raymond J. Scott, Virginia State Police Bureau of Criminal Investigation Chesapeake Division, made the announcement after the indictment was unsealed and those charged were in police custody.
“The alleged gang members are charged with terrorizing neighborhoods in Portsmouth, Suffolk, and Chesapeake, and this indictment is a crucial step in our efforts to protect citizens,” said U.S. Attorney MacBride. “It is a priority of our office to work with federal and local law enforcement partners to make our citizens safer in their homes and communities.”
The defendants are alleged to be top Generals, leaders, and gang members of the Bounty Hunter Bloods (BHB) and the Nine Tech Gangsters (NTG), who have been operating in various neighborhoods in Portsmouth, Suffolk and Chesapeake, Virginia, since the early 2000s. According to law enforcement, they joined forces in a procedure known as 'tying flags' to increase their joint influence and their ability to make money."
