New Breed members arrested in drug market bust
January 26, 2007 - Eight reputed members of the New Breed street gang were arrested last week and warrants issued for five others as Chicago Police shut down an open-air drug market on the West Side.
An undercover investigation launched in the fall of 2006 targeted drug sales in the 3900 block of West Grenshaw Avenue, according to a release from police, who began the investigation following complaints from residents of the area.
Members of the Narcotic and Gang Activity Investigation Section also obtained information on drug sales while monitoring information about an ongoing feud between the New Breed and Traveling Vice Lord gangs, the release said.
The feud is believed responsible for an increase in violence in the area, the release said. The battle over drug turf led to at least 19 homicides in 2006, according to police.
The investigation -- dubbed "Operation Grenshaw" -- targeted the heroin sales by the New Breed Triple L gang using undercover drug purchases and surveillance of the operation, the release said. The heroin was sold in plastic bags imprinted with blue devil face logos, the release said.
Officers bought and seized more than 165 grams of heroin, with an estimated street value of about $25,000, and also confiscated about $4,000 in cash, the release said.
Arrested on Jan. 18 for criminal drug conspiracy were Jason Garrett, 31; Markell Hall, 31; and Leon Horn, 28, the release said. Wanted for criminal drug conspiracy are Gregory Dukes, 26; and Levell Pipes, 20. Six others were arrested and charged with delivery or possession of a controlled substance, while three are wanted for delivery -- Roxon Love, 28; Jeremiah Robinson, 20; and Jacoby Williams, 17.

A smile cost nothing, but gives so much.
It enriches those who receive it,without making poorer those who give.It takes but a moment, but the memoryof it sometimes lasts forever.
None is so rich or mighty that hecan get along without it,and none is so poor but thathe can be made rich by it.
A smile creates happiness in the home,fosters goodwill in business,and is the countersign of friendship.
It brings rest to the weary,cheer to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad,and it is nature's best antidote for trouble.
Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed,or stolen, for it is something that is of novalue to anyone until it is given away.
Some people are too tired to give you a smile.Give them one of yours, as none needs a smileso much as he who has no more to give.
