Admission by Tre Byrd, known as “Bands,” includes participation in violent acts and drug distribution in the region.
Morristown, NJ – In a significant legal development, a member of the notorious Rollin’ 60s Neighborhood Crips gang confessed to his involvement in a racketeering conspiracy. The announcement was made by U.S. Attorney Philip R. Sellinger.

Tre Byrd, also identified by his aliases “Bands” and “G Bandz,” aged 22, formally admitted his guilt before U.S. District Judge Susan D. Wigenton on October 3, 2023. The indictment under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act implicated him in various crimes as part of the racketeering conspiracy.

Key insights from court documents and proceedings reveal:

From 2015 to September 22, 2022, Byrd actively participated as a member of the Rollin’ 60s Neighborhood Crips. This criminal syndicate has been linked to violent actions and the widespread distribution of illegal narcotics throughout the District of New Jersey and beyond.
March 2019 witnessed Byrd collaborating with his gang counterparts to eliminate a rival gang member. The targeted individual was mortally wounded by gunfire on March 20, 2019, in Irvington, New Jersey. Furthermore, Byrd, along with at least one fellow gang member, engaged in an armed robbery in Newark on June 20, 2020.
Byrd now stands to face the gravest of legal consequences—a potential life sentence and a financial penalty that could reach $250,000. The court has set the sentencing hearing for February 7, 2024.

The exhaustive investigations that led to these charges against members of the Rollin’ 60s Neighborhood Crips drew upon the combined resources of multiple federal, state, and local agencies. These included the DEA, IRS – Criminal Investigation, ATF, U.S. Marshals Service, and various local police departments and prosecutor’s offices throughout New Jersey.

Furthermore, this case falls under the umbrella of the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Forces (OCDETF) initiative. The OCDETF program focuses on identifying, disrupting, and dismantling the top-tier criminal groups that pose a threat to national security. More information on the OCDETF’s endeavors can be accessed at Justice Department’s OCDETF Program.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Francesca Liquori of the Special Prosecutions Division is representing the government in this case.
