GSU sweeps gun and gang members from the streets

A firearm found on Gill Street by the Gang Suppression Unit back in May was used in the January murder of Marvin Forman, according to ballistic tests. The firearm is a Taurus nine millimeter pistol which had also gone missing from the police and is one of two used in the Foreman murder for which Deon Brackett was arrested and charged and another suspect is still being sought. The GSU is also reporting that a number of reputed gang members have been arrested for firearm offences. On Tuesday morning, the GSU searched the Zericote house of Michael Young during which Kareem Gladden, and two minors were also present. The GSU reports that it found a point twenty-two caliber revolver with a wooden stock under a bed.  The group was arrested and charged with Kept Firearm without Having Been Granted a Gun License. Following that search, the GSU moved to Mayflower Street where they carried out another search that led to the arrest of Roger Anthony who is described as the self proclaimed leader of Ghost Town Crips Gang. Five other reputed members of the Ghost Town Crips Gang were at the house. A recent deportee, Anthony was arrested and charged with the offence of Associate with a Criminal Gang. He also has a previous charge for a similar offence.
