Traveler Vice Lord Lit

CHICAGO—Around-the-clock retail street sales of crack cocaine and heroin, averaging between $3, 000 and $6, 000 per day, seven days a week, were conducted by a core group of several alleged members of the Traveling Vice Lords street gang and their associates on the city’s west side, according to new federal and state charges. The daily routines of these individuals and dozens of others ended today when hundreds of Chicago Police officers, FBI agents, and deputy U.S. Marshals began serving arrest warrants on nearly 100 state and federal defendants and conducting searches, ending a two-year investigation.

Significant multi-ounce quantities of crack cocaine and heroin were seized during the investigation. The Chicago Police Department’s Organized Crime Division began investigating an alleged drug-trafficking organization led by members of the TVL street gang that operated in the area of Kedzie Avenue and Ohio Street, known as “KO, ” in August 2008. The FBI joined the investigation three months later.

The federal defendants arrested today were expected to begin appearing at 1:30 this afternoon before Magistrate Judge Young Kim in Courtroom 1944D in U.S. District Court, and will continue through the afternoon and tomorrow morning.

“For the fifth time in the last four months, local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies are joining forces to announce significant arrests involving street gang members, their associates and drug trafficking. These cases, which we believe weaken the grip of gangs and drugs in our community, happen because dedicated police officers and federal agents, along with state and federal prosecutors, work together to attack these problems, ” said Patrick J. Fitzgerald, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Illinois.

Mr. Fitzgerald announced the charges together with Anita Alvarez, Cook County State’s Attorney; Jody P. Weis, Superintendent of the Chicago Police Department; and Robert D. Grant, Special Agent-in-Charge of the Chicago Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The U.S. Marshals Service assisted with the arrests. The investigation was conducted under the umbrella of U.S. Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF), and with assistance from the High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area Task Force (HIDTA). The investigation is continuing.

“We will continue to combine our law enforcement resources in order to maximize our impact in targeting and eliminating this type of organized drug trafficking that brings so much havoc and unrest to our communities, ” Ms. Alvarez said.

Mr. Grant said: “The charges announced today were the result of a joint FBI/Chicago Police investigation that targeted drug-dealing in the North Lawndale area of Chicago. Community involvement was critical to the success of this investigation and demonstrates once again the importance of citizen cooperation in aiding law enforcement.”
