FBI: RVC 'Bloods' Arrested for Drug Trafficking

More than a dozen gang members were arrested early Wednesday morning during a raid at Old Mill Court.

More than a dozen members of the Bloods gang living in Rockville Centre were arrested Wednesday for their alleged involvement in local drug trading.

The early morning raid on an Old Mill Court apartment complex was led by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Officials said the gang members trafficked cocaine, heroin and crack throughout Long Island.

According to James Margolin, spokesman for the FBI, 13 of 15 Bloods gang members wanted for narcotics trafficking were arrested during the raid of an apartment complex on Wellington Street and North Centre Avenue. The raid, which took place at 5 a.m. on Wednesday, was the culmination of a 14-month investigation led by the Rockville Centre Police Department, he said.

More than 100 officials from the FBI, RVC PD, Long Island Gang Task Force, Nassau and Suffolk county police departments and the Nassau County Sheriff's Office assisted in some capacity during the raid, Margolin said.

Most, if not all of the Bloods arrested were from Rockville Centre, Margolin said, with ages ranging from 25 to more than 50 years old. There were no injuries reported during the early morning raid, and there was an undetermined amount of narcotics seized during the operation, he said.

The subjects arrested will face federal charges for drug trafficking and will be arraigned in Central Islip today.

Patch will continue to update this story throughout the day.

You haven't been to the nice part of LIC then, have you? right on the water! nice! I walk by OMC everyday and just shake my head in disgust. It's a dump because the people that live there treat it like a dump. The MLK center looks terrible. there's trash on the walkways. awful. At least the "hood" in LIC is clean, has a nice view of the city skyline, great seats for the Macy's fireworks display, and a community garden. OMC has nothing but ugly painted all over it. Get real; this is all about money, not racism: Subsided rent, free cable, free RVC services, including access to the schools, all courtsey of the taxpayers on the east side of town. It's all about the benjamins. But really, keep playing the race card. It's all you got. What happened to your buddy Earl? kinda quiet lately, no?

Before any of you OMC sympathizers speak out, try reading these first. http://www.fbi.gov/newyork/press-releases/2011/fourteen-alleged-members-of-a-rockville-centre-crack-cocaine-distribution-organization-arrested http://www.justice.gov/usao/nye/pr/2011/2011jun01b.html http://www.longislandpress.com/2011/06/01/feds-round-up-14-bloods-in-rockville-centre/ http://www.nationalgangcenter.gov/Gang-Related-News http://www.newsday.com/long-island/nassau/fbi-gang-raid-in-rockville-centre-1.2919814 http://gothamist.com/2011/06/01/15_suspected_bloods_members_arreste.php http://dopegamenews.com/1/?p=2774 I especially like the moniker "supermarket of narcotics"

You hate the debate... because it's true. You cannot deny attention... because it's in the news. You cannot argue as your premise of race is wrong. So entertain yourself on the true reason why we all got into this mess of a thread in the first place... Oh yeah. "...A criminal complaint was unsealed today in federal court in Central Islip, New York, charging 14 members of an alleged Rockville Centre-based crack cocaine distribution ring with narcotics trafficking.1 According to the complaint and a detention letter filed today by the government, each defendant is associated with a criminal organization that has dominated the narcotics trade in the Old Mill Court apartment complex in Rockville Centre, and four of the defendants are members of the United Blood Nation (“Bloods”), a violent street gang. The defendants’ arraignments are scheduled later today before United States Magistrate Judge E. Thomas Boyle at the U.S. Courthouse, 100 Federal Plaza, Central Islip, New York..." http://www.fbi.gov/newyork/press-releases/2011/fourteen-alleged-members-of-a-rockville-centre-crack-cocaine-distribution-organization-arrested

Correction... Section 8 does not pay for the lots.
Gifted June 06, 2011 at 09:07 PM
OMC does need some changes but the way FRANK and his co-horts have gone about it is out of order, disrespectful and just dirty. Why aren't FRANK and DAVE blogging about the director of housing who has made some of the changes, who is suppose to make sure the rules of the lease are upheld, who is all about the things you and your co-horts are against SECTION8. There were some tenants who are civil service workers, teachers, paralegals, executive secretaries, nurses, and other professions but again RVC Housing didnt want the working middle class. Frank I didnt see you and Dave when we where fighting to keep OMC for the working class. So that it couldget better and be great for the community. So now yall want to talk, when others have been talkingfor years. Sopmebody has got to be benefitting from the grants it sure isnt OMC. Do your research we used to have private patrol to keep the loitering of the steps and keep the place in order but housing stopped that alot of your resentment is towards the wrong persons it should be towards the housing who always goes blind with issues, but get perfect vision to scan the next section 8 or non working tenant for benfits. And the remark about the chips is NOT right, you have taken this blog and made comments that are offensive to many.
Frank June 06, 2011 at 09:12 PM
Gifted, that is a load of BS. No working class in RVC? More BS! You and everyone else on this thread pull the race card, again, for lack of any credible defense as to why, and I'll post it again for the benefit of all: "...14 members of an alleged Rockville Centre-based crack cocaine distribution ring with narcotics trafficking.1 According to the complaint and a detention letter filed today by the government, each defendant is associated with a criminal organization that has dominated the narcotics trade in the Old Mill Court apartment complex in Rockville Centre, and four of the defendants are members of the United Blood Nation (“Bloods”), a violent street gang.

You're there for over 20 years? I thought the idea behind Section 8 was temporary housing, 4 to 6 years, to improve your financial situation and move on? How is it that you got to stay 20 years and got to go on vacations? I think RVC housing needs to pay you a visit. you actually believe words traded on a small time blog is worse than the raid? sorry, you are delusional to the point of laughter.

Get a LIFE Frank!!
Gifted June 06, 2011 at 09:38 PM
Also, in the oprevious statment I said I worked in RVc for twenty years, there you go jumping writing How did you live there for twenty years.. I thought, no one asked to to think and I again have never been on section 8. I am done forgetting all about you. I expect to be reading about you very soon in the Herald. I am sure someone is going to identify the REAL FRANK very soon.
Frank June 06, 2011 at 09:40 PM
This keeps getting better and better! Let's look at some of the workforce and the numbers shall we : Section 8 Nassau County FY 2011 Income Limit 1 Person 2 Person 3 Person 4 Person Very Low (50%) Income Limits $37,150 $42,450 $47,750 $53,050 Extremely Low (30%) Income Limits $22,300 $25,500 $28,700 $31,850 Hmm, last I checked civil service workers, teachers, paralegals, executive secretaries, nurses, and other professionals make more than these numbers provided by NYS, but continue to live at OMC. How can that be?
Frank June 06, 2011 at 09:41 PM
Got one and it's glorious!
Frank June 06, 2011 at 10:00 PM
Keep proving me right yet again gifted! you're the best thing that I could ask for. You contradict your fellow bloggers on this thread as they have clearly mentioned that other races live at OMC as well. Your arguments lack credible substance and uses race, a multiple of times, as defense against challenges to the status quo in OMC! Since you are "gifted", explain if you will, the whole point of this thread, namely: "...14 members of an alleged Rockville Centre-based crack cocaine distribution ring with narcotics trafficking.... each defendant is associated with a criminal organization that has dominated the narcotics trade in the Old Mill Court apartment complex in Rockville Centre, and four of the defendants are members of the United Blood Nation (“Bloods”), a violent street gang..." http://www.fbi.gov/newyork/press-releases/2011/fourteen-alleged-members-of-a-rockville-centre-crack-cocaine-distribution-organization-arrested Read! The raid had nothing to do with race. it had to do with people selling drugs out of OMC. At least I can commend you for admitting that not everyone in OMC is needy; even though the whole spirit for OMC was to assist those in need of financial assistance. Think about it, for 20 years, you've denied families in real need of housing by continuing to occupancy residence at OMC. Nice!

i'd like to forget about you too Gifted. As for the herald, c'est la vie. Not afraid of those that would try to quell free speech.
Frank June 06, 2011 at 10:22 PM
that statement is just wrong considering the wealth of information available today! http://www.nationalgangcenter.gov/
Frank June 06, 2011 at 10:25 PM
What's funny as you fail to address why: "...14 members of an alleged Rockville Centre-based crack cocaine distribution ring with narcotics trafficking.1 According to the complaint and a detention letter filed today by the government, each defendant is associated with a criminal organization that has dominated the narcotics trade in the Old Mill Court apartment complex in Rockville Centre, and four of the defendants are members of the United Blood Nation (“Bloods”), a violent street gang.

Frank June 06, 2011 at 10:27 PM
OK, yeah, it's just them, not the dozens of others that tolerated their presence for the past year(s). but sure, let's go with your point.
Frank June 06, 2011 at 10:28 PM
4 today, 10 tomorrow, we really have to wait it out, won't we?
Frank June 06, 2011 at 11:24 PM
@ Gifted. If you know, for a fact, there are other homes in RVC offering more expensive drugs, why then aren't you bringing it to the attention of the RVC PD? There are lives to consider, especially children. Silence is not golden...
Bleep June 07, 2011 at 03:45 PM
LMFAO NO. because the real major gang members will never be coming home. what happened in RVC is little to what the one's locked up have done and are still doing. the major gang members can run the streets from inside thier cells. like i said Frank you dont know much about gangs and gang life.
Bleep June 07, 2011 at 03:47 PM
but yes you got a few lil runners locked up. oh wait thats with thanks to authorities. not you Frank with copy and pasting web sites. lmao. oh man. you live behind a wall and under a rock dear sir.
Bleep June 07, 2011 at 03:52 PM
ok lets go with my point. bloods arent the only street gang that resides in RVC thier on the eastside and northside and southside and the heart of RVC. YES the **authorities** got the drug "cartels" (lmfao at media and whomever calling them cartels). So what you STILL complaining about? oh wait the fact that RVC been slipping EVEN when you moved here? you should've asked a highschool student the things that happen under the radar then. you wouldn't have been so upset now.
Bleep June 07, 2011 at 03:57 PM
actually i have friends and family everywhere so yes i have LMFAO. ALSO have friends on the northshore and in both east and west hamptons (btw they dont care that RVC had thier gang members and dealers on the news for being arressted). yea theres also garbage on my block and my block is beautiful. theres also garbage near the middle school. near the highschool. oh wait thats because people dont know how to throw crap out. its not just OMC for the umphteenth time.
Bleep June 07, 2011 at 04:03 PM
responsibility starts with parents. but if u come from a broken home or a parents who ignore you or what you do, you dont step up to responsibilities till much later. but programs RVC has to offer, how much do they cost i wonder kuz few things i wanted to do my parents said no because how much it wuld cost. and last time i checked nothing was free cept a few things at the library where OMG the residents from OMC go! lord help us Frank they're free loading again right?
Bleep June 07, 2011 at 04:06 PM
again relying mainly on the media isnt the best idea! you have 2 stories to choose from. 1.media coverage. 2.what people from the area have to say(could also be known as the streets). you're looking only from the media point of view. yet again surprise surprise.
Frank June 07, 2011 at 04:06 PM
Wow Thanks for "enlightening" me on what gangs and affliations are. so you were a gangbanger as well? I guess it's natural for you to defend members as well; Once a gangbanger, always a gangbanger, right? Unfortunately, since you claim past fidelity with the UBN, your comments are biased.
Bleep June 07, 2011 at 04:07 PM
yea i wish i had 20k to pay in taxes too. what do you do for a living im curious.
Bleep June 07, 2011 at 04:08 PM
free speach is fine. but you're going to open a can of worms you wont be able to handle. another pretty penny i can bet on.
Frank June 07, 2011 at 04:10 PM
I believe you that you do not believe the media, especially in light of what happened at OMC, noting your past affiliation with UBN.
Bleep June 07, 2011 at 04:19 PM
because then all your friends will be in rehab most likely. i also know that there are more expensive drugs in other homes that are in RVC. i've known highschool students who done lines of coke in thier kichens. took heroin at parties. popped E take perks and vikes. as well as that attention disorder medication. not only have i seen them take them- i've seen them distributing. and what did RVC PD do then? they made them dump it down a sewer drain. never arrested them-just sent them along thier way. but honestly Frank, if you were to sit down and talk to a highschool student you will see what rockville centre really is. its an eye opener.
Bleep June 07, 2011 at 04:22 PM
uh frank due to the economy the incomes have changed. but you forget housing isnt the only bill in peoples mail box.
