A member of the Rollin’ 60s Neighborhood Crips gang admitted to his role in a racketeering conspiracy. 22-year-old Tre Byrd, aka “Bands,” aka “G Bandz,” pleaded guilty Tuesday to a superseding indictment that charged him with Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) conspiracy.
From 2015 through Sept. 22, 2022, Byrd was a member of the Rollin’ 60s Neighborhood Crips, which, prosecutors say, is “a criminal enterprise responsible for acts of violence and the distribution of controlled substances in the District of New Jersey and elsewhere.”
In March 2019, Byrd worked with other members and associates of the gang to murder a gang rival, who was fatally shot on March 20, 2019, in Irvington, New Jersey. On June 20, 2020, Byrd and at least one other member and associate of the gang robbed a victim at gunpoint in Newark.
He faces a maximum sentence of life imprisonment and a fine of up to $250,000. Sentencing is scheduled for Feb. 7, 2024.
