Nearly 100 Alleged Traveling Vice Lords Street Gang Members and Associates Facing State or Federal Narcotics Charges | Chicago Press Release Services

01:00 |

Nearly 100 Alleged Traveling Vice Lords Street Gang Members and Associates Facing State or Federal Narcotics Charges | Chicago Press Release Services: "Around-the-clock retail street sales of crack cocaine and heroin, averaging between $3,000 and $6,000 per day, seven days a week, were conducted by a core group of several alleged members of the Traveling Vice Lords street gang and their associates on the city’s west side, according to new federal and state charges.
The daily routines of these individuals and dozens of others ended today when hundreds of Chicago Police officers, FBI agents, and deputy U.S. Marshals began serving arrest warrants on nearly 100 state and federal defendants and conducting searches, ending a two-year investigation.
Significant multi-ounce quantities of crack cocaine and heroin were seized during the investigation.
The Chicago Police Department’s Organized Crime Division began investigating an alleged drug-trafficking organization led by members of the TVL street gang that operated in the area of Kedzie Avenue and Ohio Street, known as “KO,” in August 2008. The FBI joined the investigation three months later.
The federal defendants arrested today were expected to begin appearing at 1:30 this afternoon before Magistrate Judge Young Kim in Courtroom 1944D in U.S. District Court, and will continue through the afternoon and tomorrow morning."
