Two Bronx men were indicted Thursday for selling "33 weapons and large capacity ammunition feeding devices" to an undercover officer, the DA's office announced.
Bronx District Attorney Darcel Clark and NYPD Commissioner Keechant Sewell say a four-month investigation was conducted by multiple organizations. The defendants, allegedly high-ranking members of the Forest Over Everything crew affiliated with the Bloods, allegedly sold a total of 33 firearms. This included 25 semi-automatic pistols, 5 revolvers and 3 assault weapons. Fifteen large-capacity ammunition-feeding devices and approximately 80 grams of cocaine were also listed.
Officials say the items were sold undercover for a total of $63,460, between September 2021 and February 2022.
Investigators traced two of the firearms to shootings in the Bronx and Manhattan. Two of the firearms were reported as ghost guns.
The indictment comes soon after Mayor Eric Adams and New York City officials' rollout of the NYPD Neighborhood Safety Team initiative to crack down on gun violence.
