Police arrest more than 60 members of NJ's most violent street gangPosted: Updated:
State police say they've taken down the leadership of New Jersey's most violent street gang. Police arrested more than 60 high-ranking members of the Nine Trey Blood Gang Tuesday and at least 40 more arrests are expected in the future. Charges range from guns and drugs to money laundering and racketeering. Investigators say they were surprised to discover how closely members in cities throughout the state worked together. The arrests wipe out almost a third of the gang and police say they believe losing their leaders will make it harder for the gang to rebuild. This particular gang was targeted after an assessment in 2005 revealed that the Nine Treys were responsible for more violent crime in New Jersey than any other street gang.
