67 members of Chicago gang charged in drug conspiracy

The Associated Press

CHICAGO- Authorities began rounding up 67 members of a street gang Tuesday after prosecutors unsealed charges accusing them of conspiring to distribute large amounts of crack and other drugs.

The arrests came after a two-year investigation of the New Breed gang.

Forty-three members were in custody by midmorning, and officers also confiscated more than four pounds of cocaine and two pounds of heroin, authorities said.

"If you engage in street gang-controlled retail distribution of narcotics and use firearms, you expose yourself to federal prosecution that will relocate you for many years _ in prison," U.S. Attorney Patrick J. Fitzgerald said in a statement.
