28 Members and Associates of “GBK” Neighborhood Street Gang Charged in Drug Trafficking Conspiracies

PITTSBURGH- After a lengthy Title III wiretap investigation into drug trafficking and violence in Pittsburgh’s West End neighborhoods and other communities in the Greater Pittsburgh area, 28 people, all residents of Western Pennsylvania, were indicted by a federal grand jury in Pittsburgh on charges of violating federal narcotics and firearms laws.

A federal grand jury has issued two separate, but related, indictments, United States Attorney Scott W. Brady and FBI-Pittsburgh Special Agent in Charge Bob Jones announced today.

U.S. Attorney Brady stated, “Reducing violent crime and making our communities safe for law-abiding citizens is a top priority of the U.S. Attorney’s Office. Working with our federal, state and local partners and using every tool at our disposal, we will prosecute gangs like the Greenway Boy Killas, which terrorize our neighborhoods and put innocent people in danger, to the fullest extent of the law.”

“The FBI works closely with our law enforcement partners to make sure those bringing violence to our streets are held accountable,” said Special Agent in Charge Bob Jones. “We want to make this clear to other gangs operating in our communities. We are coming for you, and the violence won’t be tolerated.”
