Last week, a federal jury in Boston convicted 26-year-old Denzel Chisholm, the head of the Nauti-Block gang, and Molly London, 33, of drug charges after a nine-day trial.

Chisholm and London were found guilty of multiple drug charges relating to their participation in a heroin and fentanyl trafficking enterprise on Cape Cod.

Denzel Chisholm was also found guilty of conspiring to distribute and possessing with intent to distribute one kilo of heroin, nine counts of possession of heroin with the intent to distribute and conspiring to distribute suboxone into the MCI-Norfolk prison

London was convicted of aiding and abetting Chisholm and maintaining a property for drug purposes, the Cape Cod Times reported.

Gang leader Denzel Chisolm was convicted in heroin trafficking case

Sentencing has been scheduled by U.S. District Court Chief Judge Patti B. Saris for September 2017.

In April 2016, after an eight-month probe, 13 members of the Cape Cod-based Nauti-Block gang were apprehended on drug trafficking and gun charges. Two following indictments brought the total number of defendants charged to 19.

Chisholm dealt massive amounts of heroin throughout lower Cape Cod. He used other people to store and deliver the heroin, then sold it to co-conspirators.

Molly London was also convicted of federal drug trafficking charges

London permitted Chisholm to store and distribute heroin from her residence. During a search, 77 grams of heroin were discovered in a Starbucks cup, and a 55-pound box of mannitol (a heroin cutting agent) was recovered from her bed.

Previously intercepted texts and calls indicated that London made her residence available to Chisholm just before Chisholm took part in heroin deals.

In addition to Chisholm and London, 16 co-conspirators have pleaded guilty to drug distribution and conspiracy.

Chisholm and another co-defendant, Tyrone Gomes, are also facing charges for the 2015 killing of Christine Ferreira at a rest stop on Cape Cod.
