Federal agents and Yonkers police made a series of arrests early Wednesday in connection with the takedown of a violent Yonkers-based street gang commonly known as GMF, law enforcement officials tell NBC New York.
Thirteen members of the gang are charged in a federal indictment with racketeering, drug trafficking, murder, and firearms offenses, according to court papers unsealed Wednesday.
Ronnie King and Chris Grebinger, two of the alleged gang members named in the indictment, are still wanted to by authorities (see photos above). The FBI is asking anyone with information on their whereabouts to call 212-384-1000.
The GMF gang is accused of participating in numerous threats and acts of violence to protect its territory and power, including shootings of rival gang members and the 2013 murder of one, according to the indictment. An innocent bystander was wounded in a 2008 attempt to shoot a rival gang member, and a rival gang member was paralyzed in a 2010 shooting, the indictment says.
The arrests were made by the FBI’s Westchester Violent Crimes Task Force with help from the bureau's SWAT team.
Those arrested in the Wednesday morning sweep are expected to appear in federal court in White Plains later Wednesday.
