They rolled by the name 'Beat-Down Posse,' or 'BDP,' and the rogue's gallery of thieves, thugs and swindlers surrounding bail bondsman Joseph Duane Gustafson Jr. was behind a North Minneapolis crime spree as extensive as it was lengthy, police say.

Investigators say the men, under the guise of pursuing bail jumpers, would often raid the homes of people they thought were drug dealers. But former BDP members told police the raids were undertaken to steal drugs, money and even jewelry.

On Thursday, Hennepin County prosecutors said they hoped they had brought the crimes to a halt. In a 14-count criminal complaint, prosecutors charged Gustafson and an alleged top lieutenant, Troy Michael Neuberger, with crimes ranging from drug sales and assault to mortgage fraud.

But the key charge — and the one that could put the men in prison the longest if convicted — is racketeering. The complaint alleges the Beat-Down Posse was a criminal enterprise, and as such, the members could face 20 years in prison and $1 million fines if found guilty."
