Vogelsang was sentenced to 15 to 30 years in prison for his involvement in the shootout.

A wave of escalating inter-gang violence that was heading towards “war” in Montgomery County has been halted after 34 arrests were announced Thursday afternoon, the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office in Norristown announced.
The worst of the violence was centered in Pottstown but spread through Montgomery County and surrounding areas, according to officials.
The arrests are the result of what the DA’s office is calling “Operation War Ready”: over six months of investigations into the rival drug gangs “Straight Cash Money” and “Brothas From Anotha,” both operating out of Pottstown.
“Cream” and “Pizza”
Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman stated that the violence they tracked began on November 25, 2014 during a shooting altercation involving two gang members.
Devon “Cream” Vogelsang, of “Brothas from Anotha”, and Dathan “Pizza” Stevens, a “Straight Cash Money” member, were implicated in the spate of violence, according to the DA.
The incident occurred within Pottstown but the specific location was not released.
