CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

An indictment targeting members of a street gang based in Cleveland’s Collinwood neighborhood was unsealed Wednesday.

The 39-count indictment is the result of a months-long investigation by Cleveland police, the FBI and the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives working in collaboration with the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s Office.

It charges four members of the "56 Bricks" or "Brick Squad" gang – Bryan Wilson, 27; Rayshawn Foster, 25; Jamal Cammack, 23; and Allante Bush, 22 - with participating in a criminal gang as well as with various narcotics and firearms offenses. Participating in criminal gang is a felony of the second degree, punishable by up to eight years in prison.

Currently all of the defendants except for Cammack are in custody.

The investigation of the gang – one of the original groups to operate under the Heartless Felons umbrella — continues, and prosecutors expect to bring additional charges.

According to investigators, the epicenter of the area where the Brick Squad gang operates, is at East 156th Street and St. Clair Avenue in northeast Cleveland. The drug charges in this indictment involve heroin and cocaine trafficking.
