INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The Marion County Prosecutor’s Office announced new charges against 11 members of the so-called Grundy Crew on Friday afternoon.

The gang faces murder, conspiracy to commit murder, criminal gang activity and other charges charges, the prosecutor announced.

The group is responsible for seven homicides, according to the prosecutor.

The group is alleged to have transported drugs, specifically marijuana, via parcel primarily from Phoenix, Arizona, to Indianapolis. Investigators said the United States Postal Service intercepted nearly 800 pounds of marijuana during the investigation. They said another 3,200 pounds of suspicious packages have been linked to the gang.

Richard Grundy III is the alleged head of the gang. Several of his family members, including his father, are alleged to be involved in the drug trafficking.

Facing charges in the case:

  • Richard Grundy III is the accused ring leader. He faces charges including conspiracy to commit murder, conspiracy to commit dealing marijuana, corrupt business influence and criminal gang activity.
  • Richard Grundy Jr. faces charges of conspiracy to commit murder, conspiracy to commit dealing marijuana, corrupt business influence and criminal gang activity.
  • Amanda Chowning-Grundy is wanted by authorities for conspiracy to commit murder, conspiracy to commit dealing marijuana, corrupt business influence and criminal gang activity.
  • Eric Butler faces charges of conspiracy to commit murder, conspiracy to commit dealing marijuana, corrupt business influence and criminal gang activity.

  • Victor Tinnin-Wells faces charges of conspiracy to commit murder, conspiracy to commit dealing marijuana, corrupt business influence and criminal gang activity.

Every suspect received a Criminal Gang Sentence enhancement. Prosecutor Terry Curry said that means prison term for each charge will be doubled if they are convicted.

The prosecutor’s office says the charges announced Friday afternoon are a result of a 22-month-long investigation led by the ATF.

Two of the 11 are still on the loose. Amanda Chowning-Grundy and David Carroll are still sought by authorities.

Grundy III still has an open case where he is accused of hiring a hitman to two double murders. Both of those cases are included in the seven murders investigators said the gang is connected to over the nearly two year investigation.

Court documents state the gang is suspected in the double murders of Tyrese Dorsey and William Davis on Jan. 28, 2014 at 1856 Rural Avenue, Julius Dougas and Carlos Jefferson on Feb. 1, 2014 at 3465 North Hovey Street, and  Terry Hunter and Roemello Carny on April 4, 2014 at 9251 Beech Tree Court. Court documents state the gang is also responsible for four shootings that hurt four people.

“The results of those investigations and dismantling those criminal enterprises, the effect of that will not necessarily be seen tomorrow or next week but long term I absolutely believe we’re on the right track,” said Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry.

In the court documents, investigators searched at “stash house” in the 1700 block of North Parker Avenue in April 2014. Investigators said they found 15 pounds of marijuana, guns, money, and phones inside. The man who said he lives in the home now, Lorenzo Williams, couldn’t believe it.

“Man that’s bad. That’s real terrible,” Williams said.

He added that the neighborhood appears safe ever since he moved in a few months ago.
