It Begins… NYC Starts Arresting Migrant Gangs

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

In this 18 February 2024 video, Cash Jordan reports on recent police activities to stop a new crime wave.

A small minority of asylum seekers have come to America seeking something other than the American dream. They do not represent the thousands who have come here seeking a better life, however, their presence is being felt across the city, and the police are playing catch up.

A group of migrants has been working as a ‘ghost’ criminal enterprise in New York City - led by a Venezuelan ringleader who was let free by authorities in December.

Police are still on the hunt for the ringleader – Venezuelan national Victor Parra, 30, who was not home when police served a search warrant in his alleged residence in the Bronx. Officials believe he entered the country sometime in 2023 and was freed on bail in December after being charged with grand larceny.

At least five migrants were arrested Monday morning in a sting operation by the NYPD looking into a gang of criminals who use stolen mopeds and scooters to violently snatch phones and wallets from pedestrians, mainly women. 

As reported by Newsbreak

“Parra is said to have recruited accomplices by sending out WhatsApp messages, actively seeking volunteers. The messages, specifying the targeted phone models, reportedly included directives like, “I have money. I’m available. Go get them,” according to police statements.

Upon obtaining the stolen phones, Parra allegedly sent them to a tech expert who hacked into the devices, cleared out the victims’ bank accounts, and made fraudulent purchases. The ill-gotten gains amounted to hundreds of thousands of dollars, and the phones were later shipped to Colombia, as per police reports.”
