Police arrest 33 people in gang-related drug bust at Mitchel Housing complex
Police say they arrested 33 people Thursday who are members of the Hell Bound Crypt Gang. Investigators believe the gang members were dealing crack cocaine out of the John P. Mitchel Housing Complex in Mott Haven.
The investigation was started in September 2001. Police believe that 33 gang members were not only dealing drugs but were also terrorizing residents in the neighborhood.
Officials say they expect at least ten more arrests in connection with the case. Investigators believe that some of the gang members are responsible for at least a dozen shootings and expect murder charges to follow.
