36th Street Bang Squad busted 13 members bringing more than 100 charges, police said

The operation against the 36th Street Bang Squad was carried out Friday morning, Hampton police spokeswoman Cpl. Paula Ensley said.Hampton and Newport News police officers, with the assistance of federal and state investigators, have busted 13 members of a street gang, bringing more than 100 charges, police said Friday.
She said warrants were obtained for 15 members of the gang. Police eventually picked up 13 people."The Hampton Police Division, along with the assistance of the Newport News Police Department, Virginia State Police and the Federal Bureau of Investigations conducted a warrant operation in reference to serving 103 felony and misdemeanor gang related warrants," Ensley said.The gang is a sect of the criminal street gang Bloods, according to previous affidavits for search warrants."The Hampton Police Division would like to thank the Hampton Commonwealth Attorney's Office, Newport News Police Department, the Virginia State Police and the FBI for their assistance in this operation. This successful operation is another perfect example of how all local law enforcement agencies are working together to combat gangs in our cities," Ensley said.The operation comes just over a month after federal prosecutors announced indictments against 10 people who they said were members of the "Dump Squad," the "Bang Gang" or the "Slump Mobb" — a gang based in southeast Newport News.Almost 40 charges, including three homicides, were leveled against the people arrested in Newport News under the federal Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, which entails running a criminal racketeering enterprise.Ensley said federal law was not used in Friday's operation and all of the charges were from Hampton Police Division warrants.Details of the charges were still emerging Friday evening.Ensley said "numerous felony charges" had been brought in the Hampton operation but no charges for homicide had been brought.The 36th Street Bang Squad was mentioned last year in court documents when police investigated the shooting death of 14-year-old Robjea Mitchell inside a home on Greenbriar Avenue in Hampton in October.Police said suspected juvenile members of the gang were in the house at the time.Police have not made a decision on whether the death will be considered an accident or a homicide.
