3 Members of Violent Drug Gang Convicted

Published April 16, 2010

 

BALTIMORE (AP) — Two men and a woman have been convicted of being part of a violent drug gang that was run out of a western Maryland prison.

A federal jury convicted 23-year-old Tavon Mouzone and 24-year-old Anthony Fleming of racketeering conspiracy on Thursday. Their co-defendant, 25-year-old Michelle Hebron, pleaded guilty to the same charge on the second day of their trial.

Among the acts Hebron admitted to was the 2007 shooting death of David Moore in Hagerstown. Prosecutors described Hebron as a high-ranking female member of the Tree Top Piru Bloods gang.

Hebron and Fleming face a maximum sentence of life in prison, while Mouzone faces up to 20 years.

Prosecutors have secured convictions against more than 20 TTP Bloods members, including the leader, Steve Willock.
