Cops arrest two more members of gang with ties to Cardi B

Cops have caught up to two more members of a violent city Bloods gang whose leaders include a close pal of hip-hop star Cardi B, authorities said Friday.

Robert Baley, a 43-year-old with the street name of “Dead Eye,” was arrested Thursday in Scranton, Pa., and 49-year-old Augustus Ingram, a k a the “Elevator,” was busted Wednesday in New York City, according to federal and local police.

The two men were arrested in connection with the 59 Brims gang, a murderous drug-trafficking ring that has been around for at least a decade, authorities said.

Earlier this year, the feds charged Willie Evans and Yonette Respass — the alleged godfather and godmother of the gang.

Respass is more widely known a close friend of Cardi B, who has been a vocal supporter of the 29-year-old.

Members of the gang have “promoted and celebrated, in music and on social media” their criminal exploits and threatened witnesses with violence, the indictment reads.

Baley and Ingram are facing federal charges of conspiracy to sell drugs and conspiracy to commit racketeering as well as a gun charge, according to an indictment unsealed Friday.

The charges were made public as part of a superseding indictment connected to a sweeping takedown of the leader of 59 Brims, a Bloods subset, and 17 others in February.

The gang had been running a criminal enterprise since 2011 that pushed drugs, including crack, heroin and fentanyl, and was connected to bank and wire fraud, as well as murder, according to the indictment.

One suspect, 23-year-old Quaveon Ross dubbed “Bullet,” named in the most recent indicted filed in the Southern District remains on the loose, authorities said.

NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea praised his cops’ work in a statement and said, “The gang-fueled violence detailed in these court papers can never be accepted.”

HSI Special Agent-in-Charge Peter Fitzhugh added, “The gangsters we take off the street are responsible for numerous murders, deadly drug distribution, and senseless violence throughout our communities.”
