Gang Warfare Led to 24 Arrests with Massive Drug Bust in DC: US Attorney for DC

After an extensive investigation into two rival gangs involved in drug trafficking, the United States Attorney for the District of Columbia, Matthew Graves, has announced that a total of 24 individuals have been apprehended.

Authorities conducted investigations in the Carver-Langston and Trinidad neighborhoods of Northeast, D.C.

Graves hosted a press conference on Thursday to offer additional information regarding the extensive drug busts.

According to Graves, 15 individuals were apprehended on May 15 for their alleged involvement in a drug trafficking scheme centered around the intersection of 21st and Maryland Avenue in Northeast, specifically in the Carver-Langston neighborhood.

Ten individuals have been apprehended following a federal indictment, accused of participating in the distribution of Fentanyl and crack cocaine. There are allegations that the group distributed a significant amount of illegal narcotics. During searches, investigators discovered a total of 20 guns, along with magazines, ammunition, a substantial amount of cash totaling $23,000, and significant quantities of various drugs such as heroin, Fentanyl, marijuana, and liquid PCP.

According to Graves, nine individuals were apprehended on Thursday for their alleged involvement in a drug trafficking scheme in the Round Street, NE vicinity of the Trinidad neighborhood.

Five individuals have been charged by a federal indictment, with three of them allegedly involved in a conspiracy to distribute dangerous substances such as Fentanyl, crack, and heroin. According to him, the group distributed a significant amount of illegal narcotics.

As part of this ongoing investigation, authorities have seized a significant amount of evidence, including 15 firearms, a substantial sum of cash totaling $126,000, ammunition, and illicit substances.

According to Graves, crews from both of these neighborhoods, which are located very close to each other, have a long history of conflict. Ongoing investigations are being conducted, including an examination of other crews in the District.

“If individuals are involved in similar crimes in the district, it is advised to assume that their crew is under investigation,” Graves warns.

According to Graves and others, it is emphasized that the violence is being caused by a small group of individuals, resulting in certain areas becoming unsafe.
