In the indictment, first obtained by The Blast, Tekashi and members of his crew are are accused of being a part of the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods, a gang that mainly operates in the NYC boroughs of Manhattan, the Bronx and Brooklyn. The documents allege that Nine Trey are responsible for multiple shootings, robberies and assaults against their rivals.

The Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods are also accused of running and participating in a drug enterprise. Allegedly, the operation sold marijuana, fentanyl, furanyl fentanyl, heroin, MDMA, dibutylone. Nine Trey “committed and agreed, attempted, and threatened to commit acts of violence to protect and expand their narcotics business and to protect fellow members of the enterprise,” according to the documents.

Tekashi 6ix9ine, real name Daniel Hernandez, is facing a maximum sentence of life in prison on two of the counts for his participation in a criminal organization.

As alleged in the indictment, this gang, which included platinum-selling rap artist Tekashi 6ix 9ine, wreaked havoc on New York City, engaging in brazen acts of violence. Showing reckless indifference to others’ safety, members of the gang were allegedly involved in robberies and shootings, including a shooting inside the crowded Barclay’s Center, and a shooting in which an innocent bystander was hit. Thanks to the extraordinary work of HSI, ATF, and the NYPD, the defendants will now face justice in federal court,” said U.S. Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman in a statement.

Members of Nine Trey, who wielded firearms and pushed highly addictive drugs onto New York City streets, allegedly showed an unprecedented level of violence this year, and for that they are now facing multiple charges, including an incident in which an innocent bystander was shot. This criminal enterprise has no business in our city, and we will continue to work with our partners to ensure that Nine Trey crew members, including the more well-known ‘Tekashi 6ix 9ine,’ are in a place where they cannot inflict further violence on our communities,” adds Homeland Security Investigations Special Agent in charge Angel M. Melendez.

The 20-year-old was denied bail and will remain in custody until his pending trial.
