Fifteen Members of "Murda Grove Boys" Gang Arrested by FBI
The Murda Grove Boys are not, as their name would suggest, a horror-core boy band but actually one of Miami-Dade's most violent criminal gangs. CBS4 reports that Miami Gardens police, the FBI and the U.S. Attorney's Office have arrested 15 suspected members of the gang today. Four other members and associates are still being searched for.
The group engaged in violent crime and drug dealing in the Myrtle Garden neighborhood of Miami Gardens.
According to the indictment, 13 of the suspected gang members face charges of conspiracy to distribute cocaine, heroin and Ecstasy; four have been charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and seven have been charged with possession of a firearm during a drug deal.
The FBI warns that violent crime in Miami Gardens is still out of control, but at least one violent gang has now been dismantled.
