Multiple media outlets are reporting that an ex-convict who was arrested on gun and drug charges in March is a member of the Bronx Rises Against Gun Violence group.
Jermaine Greene was stopped for fare evasion at a Bronx subway station on March 28. Officers said they found a loaded ghost gun and a bag of crack cocaine on him.
Greene is facing multiple weapon and drug charges.
A spokesperson for BRAG released a statement saying, "We take this matter seriously and are conducting a comprehensive internal inquiry to ensure the safety, welfare and trust of our program participants and the communities we support."
Police say the former director of BRAG, 49-year-old Michael Rodriguez, is in prison for trafficking narcotics. He was found with more than a kilo of cocaine, guns and $167,000 in drug money. He was arrested last July.
