Bloods Street Gang Involved In Counterfeit Bank Scheme

New Jersey authorities said 31 people have been indicted in a bank fraud scheme orchestrated by members and associates of the Bloods street gang. New Jersey Attorney General Anne Milgram said today that the scheme involved more than $654,000 in counterfeit checks. She said the scheme resulted in the theft of more than $341,000 from eight banks. The charges stem from "Operation Bloodbank," an investigation by the New Jersey State Police, the state Division of Criminal Justice and the Monmouth County Prosecutor's Office. AP
