DALLAS — Fourteen defendants have been
charged in a federal indictment, unsealed yesterday, with felony offenses
stemming from their role in a Dallas–based criminal street gang known as “YNB
Stretch Gang” and a drug distribution group known as “2600 Money Block,”
announced U.S. Attorney John Parker of the Northern District of Texas.
“These violent, drug-dealing gangs should be on notice,” said U.S. Attorney
Parker. “We’re going after them wherever they are.”
Ten defendants, mostly from Dallas, were arrested
earlier last week and one is in custody on state charges. Those arrested made
their initial appearances in federal court and were detained. Three
In connection with the takedown, law
enforcement seized quantities of cocaine, crack cocaine, PCP, prescription
pills, marijuana and multiple firearms, including an assault rifle.
The 26-count indictment charges the following:
Nykees Earl Campbell, aka “#1,” “NaNa,” “Ny-Nizzle,” 19; Avery Wayne Davis, aka
“AD,” 36; Demond Lynn, aka “Slime,” 36; Kearwon Dmargo Magee, 23; Rodney
Eugene Roquemore, aka “Turbo,” 31; Lawrence Williams, aka “One Eye”; Kris
Landon Greene, aka “#5,” 20; Bryson Deontae Bright, 24; Ralph Earl Campbell
III, 22; Garry Dewayne Newton, aka “#4,” 20; Stacy Moore, aka “Jay,” 23; Marcus
Jackson, aka “Marty-Mar,” 23; Mitchell Holmes; Cedric Charles Witcher, 22.
The indictment alleges, beginning in January 2016, the defendants used an area
in Dallas referred to as “2600 Money Block” to cut, package and distribute
cocaine, crack cocaine, marijuana, methamphetamine and ecstasy/OxyContin pills
to numerous customers. The proceeds from the sale of drugs were used to
produce music videos glorifying acts of violence and promoting the lifestyle of
YNB Stretch Gang members and associates.
Prosecutors are seeking to forfeit several things used as part of or as a
result of the criminal conspiracy, including multiple firearms.
A federal indictment is an accusation by a grand jury. A defendant is entitled
to the presumption of innocence unless proven guilty. If convicted,
however, the defendants’ sentences
will be determined by the court after a review of the federal sentencing
guidelines and factors unique to the case, including the defendant’s prior
criminal record (if any), the defendant’s role in the offense and the
characteristics of the violation.
This indictment is the result of an investigation by the Bureau of Alcohol
Tobacco and Firearms, United States Marshal’s Service, Dallas Police Department
and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The case is being prosecuted by Deputy
Criminal Chief Assistant U.S. Attorney Rick Calvert.
