On Wednesday, fourteen people in Miami-Dade County were indicted after a multiagency bust. The suspects are accused of multiple crimes, which include robbery, racketeering, drug trafficking, and murder charges.

Federal prosecutors say the 14 members of the violent group began operating in 2000, primarily in Allapattah’s South Gwen Cherry housing complex in Miami-Dade, Local10 News reported.

Officials said in a press release that the suspects conspired to “engage in a pattern of racketeering that involved murder, threats, robberies, narcotics trafficking, and the use of firearms in furtherance of violence and drug trafficking activity.”

The suspects have been identified as Antonio Glass, Curtis Bryant, Jermaine Bryant, Quincy Bryant, Levi Bryant, Reginald Graham, Michael Walker, Daniel Jones, Samuel Hayes, Torivis Reginal Ingram, Mario Rodriguez, Latitia Houser, Donzell Jones and Vencess Toby.

“As gangs have become more violent, the FBI and its partners will use every means to include racketeering statutes to dismantle these criminal enterprises,” Assistant Special Agent in Charge Michael D’Alonzo stated. “The FBI and our partners are serving notice to gangs everywhere; these statutes hold serious consequences to include life in prison.

If found guilty, the defendants will face a minimum of 10 years behind bars and a maximum of life in prison.
