Feds announce 134-count indictment against Bloods
Wednesday, July 11, 2012

 


COLUMBIA, SC (WIS/AP) - A multi-year federal investigation into a gang in South Carolina resulted in an indictment on 134 counts of racketeering.

U.S. Attorney Bill Nettles and FBI Special Agent in Charge David Thomas announced the indictment in Columbia on Wednesday.

Nettles said the investigation targeted the Bloods street gang. Federal prosecutors unsealed a 134-count racketeering indictment and announced that about 23 people were under arrest.

Some of the people were arrested Tuesday after the indictment charged members and associates of the United Blood Nation, also called the Bloods Street Gang. They are charged with various violations of federal law, including racketeering conspiracy, narcotics violations, firearms violations, interstate prostitution and sex trafficking.

Five of the defendants were already in custody. Nettles said fugitive teams are looking for nine more.

Prosecutors say the lead defendant, David Jenkins, was arrested in the Los Angeles area. Jenkins is a Columbia area native, but was living in Huntington Beach, CA.

Investigators say all of the others accused in the indictment are either residents of the Columbia area, or from here.
