Federal authorities announced racketeering indictments against 30 violent members and associates of the Nine Trey Gangster Bloods in Atlanta.

U.S. Attorney Byung J. “BJay” Pak said in a Justice Department Press release that a total of 30 members of the Nine Trey Gangster Bloods gang and their associates were indicted last week on charges ranging from drug distribution and violent acts, mostly against the gang’s own members.

The indictment charges multiple gang members in the racketeering conspiracy, with multiple counts of attempted murder and conspiracy to commit murder in aid of racketeering.

Feds also charged the co-conspirators with a drug trafficking conspiracy, including trafficking methamphetamine, marijuana, prescription medications and heroin.

“The alleged crimes relate to drug distribution in the Atlanta area and acts of violence perpetrated largely against the gang’s own members. Shockingly, the members of the Nine Trey Gangster Bloods in this case appear willing to kill someone or to commit violence over the smallest perceived slight,” said U.S. Attorney Byung J. “BJay” Pak. “Thanks to the hard work of federal and local law enforcement officials, these individuals will now face prosecution for their alleged crimes.”

“This indictment continues the Department’s efforts to bring to justice the leaders and most violent members of dangerous criminal enterprises like the Nine Trey Gangsters,” said Acting Assistant Attorney General Kenneth A. Blanco. “By charging those most responsible for the violence and drug dealing perpetrated by members and associates of violent street gangs like the Nine Trey Gangsters, we further the goal of making our neighborhoods and communities safer.”
