35 Alleged Md. Bloods Gang Members Indicted

Posted: Updated:

BALTIMORE (AP/WBOC)- Police chiefs from across Maryland say the federal indictment of 35 alleged members of a Maryland offshoot of the California Bloods gang will have a big impact on the streets of their communities.

The indictment announced Thursday alleges that since 2005 the South Side Brims gang has operated in counties from western Maryland to the lower Eastern Shore, and members were involved in drug trafficking, home-invasion robberies, witness intimidation, a jail break, and several shootings, including one killing.

In a press conference held Thursday, Salisbury Police Chief Barbara Duncan said, "Individuals who we believe to be South Side Brim [Bloods] members have been taken into custody under an indictment connected to this investigation."  

An affidavit supporting search warrants executed in March alleges that the gang's leader was recruited by a Bloods gang member from Compton, Calif., who was incarcerated in Maryland. Prosecutors say investigators turned up gang rosters and handbooks, intercepted letters discussing gang business and found websites containing gang messages, photos and videos.

"I thinks it's good.  It's a good thing to clean up the streets, because too many gangs are running around Salisbury.  We need to clean the streets up and it will make the streets better," said Salisbury resident Veronica Dixon.

The following suspects were indicted on the Eastern Shore of Maryland on the charges of conspiracy to participate in a racketeering enterprise known as the SSB Bloods, conspiracy to distribute drugs and gun violations:

  • William Michael Black, 22, of Stevensville, Md.
  • Yancy Lamont White, 23, of Salisbury
  • Antonio Jovan Dennis, 29, of Stevensville
  • Kyle Alexander Carey, 20, of Salisbury
  • Justin Rashaad Harris, 19, of Eden, Md.
