50 members and associates of the Bronx Trinitarios Gang (“BTG”) for racketeering, narcotics, and firearms offenses.

13:17 | , ,

Charges were announced against 50 members and associates of the Bronx Trinitarios Gang (“BTG”) for racketeering, narcotics, and firearms offenses. The Indictment alleges that BTG operated as a Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organization (RICO), and charges 41 defendants with racketeering conspiracy, related to their participation in this criminal organization, which engaged in narcotics trafficking, murder and attempted murder. 

The BTG is a criminal organization that operates primarily in Bronx, New York. BTG members and associates engage in acts of violence, including murder and attempted murder, and threats of violence, in order to protect and expand their criminal operations and to defend their territory against rival street gangs. BTG members and associates also sell numerous types of narcotics, including marijuana, crack cocaine, powder cocaine, oxycodone and suboxone.

Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara said: “As alleged, for nearly eight years, the Trinitarios street gang terrorized a wide swath of the Bronx with their drug dealing and violence. Gangs like the Trinitarios are a cancer on New York’s neighborhoods – both in the physical harm they inflict and the atmosphere of despair they create. Today’s arrests again demonstrate this Office’s commitment to eradicating the scourge of gangs throughout the Southern District of New York and to giving back to residents the peaceful enjoyment of their communities. In the past two years, we have prosecuted over 400 alleged gang members and our efforts remain very much ongoing.”
