84 alleged NY gang members accused of funneling drugs to Manchester

MANCHESTER - 84 gang members have been indicted on several charges, including running drugs and weapons from Bronx, N.Y. to Manchester.

According to federal documents, the members belonged to four gangs, the Eden Boys, Miami Ave, UGZ, and RGZ.

The gangs "flooded towns in Massachusetts and New Hampshire with cocaine, fentanyl and heroin," investigators said.

The Manchester Police Department is familiar with the NY gang activity. In July, detectives arrested three men that are suspected to be part of the same ring.

"They seized four handguns, around $12,000 cash, as well as some crack cocaine, marijuana and some other stuff," said Lt. Brian O'Keefe.

The gang members brought drugs to New Hampshire in exchange for weapons that may have been used in several shootings in New York, officials said.

The bust included the seizure of 15 guns, hundreds of bullets, more than $250,000 and 16 kilograms of crack cocaine, heroin and fentanyl.

The drug trail can stretch as far as Mexico, O'Keefe said, which is why he emphasizes the importance of law enforcement working together.

"We'll collaborate with anyone in the country if we're gonna get some help getting criminals off the street in the Queen City," he said.
