CHICAGO — Eleven individuals, including a woman and two of her sons, are facing criminal charges as part of a federal drug and gun investigation in Chicago.

During the multi-year investigation, law enforcement seized 29 firearms and associated ammunition, a machete and sheath, approximately a kilogram of cocaine, 78 pounds of marijuana, more than $190,000 in suspected illicit cash proceeds, and diamond jewelry, Rolex watches and designer clothing appraised at more than $300,000.  Much of the alleged drug trafficking occurred on the South Side of Chicago.

All eleven defendants were arrested last week.  Detention hearings for many of the defendants are being held this week in U.S. District Court in Chicago.

The charges were announced by John R. Lausch, Jr., United States Attorney for the Northern District of Illinois; Jeffrey S. Sallet, Special Agent-in-Charge of the Chicago office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation; and Eddie Johnson, Superintendent of the Chicago Police Department.  Substantial assistance was provided by the Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigation Division, Cook County Sheriff’s Department, Evergreen Park Police Department, Joliet Police Department, Orland Park Police Department, and Bolingbrook Police Department.  Assistant U.S. Attorneys Ankur Srivastava and Sheri Wong represent the government.

According to charges filed in federal court, RAKIM ASAD, 26, of Chicago, and his mother, HARRIETTE MCPHERSON, 46, of Chicago, conspired with each other and DERRICK MCNEAL, 46, of Chicago, to possess cocaine and marijuana with the intent to deliver.  Asad is also charged with knowingly possessing a loaded handgun in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime.

During the investigation, law enforcement seized from Asad a Rolex watch and two necklaces, according to the indictment against him.  Attached to the necklaces were 14-carat gold pendants with the initials “LAFA” written in diamonds, the indictment states.  The initials are an apparent reference to Asad’s suspected affiliation with LAFA, a Chicago street gang.

Four of the defendants are charged with conspiring to rob a drug dealer of marijuana in Chicago and Bridgeview in the summer of 2017.  The charges allege that KELVIN EVERETT, 38, of Chicago, GREGORY BLACKWELL, 29, of Chicago, QUINCY WRIGHT, 37, of Chicago, and JERRY PEOPLES, 42, of Chicago, possessed a loaded rifle and handgun during an attempted robbery of the dealer on June 13, 2017, in Bridgeview.  Everett, Blackwell, Wright and Peoples are also charged with illegal possession of the rifle and handgun, due to having prior felony convictions that prohibited them from lawfully possessing a firearm.

The charges further allege that RACHAD LUCAS, 38, of Calumet City, stored controlled substances in a storage unit in Calumet City.  Lucas is also charged with possessing marijuana with the intent to distribute, knowingly possessing a handgun in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime, and illegally possessing the handgun as a previously convicted felon.

Three other defendants face various drug charges: RACHAD UNDERWOOD, 42, of Chicago, CALVIN WOODS, 28, of Chicago, and SINCERE BRANNON, 19, of Chicago.  Brannon, who is also McPherson’s son, faces an additional charge of knowingly possessing a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime.

The public is reminded that charges contain only accusations and are not evidence of guilt.  The defendants are presumed innocent and entitled to a fair trial at which the government has the burden of proving guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.  The charges carry maximum penalties ranging from 20 years to life in prison.  If convicted, the Court must impose reasonable sentences under federal sentencing statutes and the advisory U.S. Sentencing Guidelines.

Federal prosecutors have added racketeering and murder charges to a gang indictment that hit 11 people, including a mother and two of her sons, with gun and drug charges last year.

The new indictment alleges that the “LAFA” street gang violently protected its drug-dealing territory on Chicago’s South Side and in Minnesota, according to a statement from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Illinois.

Prosecutors said the gang trafficked marijuana, cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine and MDMA in Chicago and Duluth, Minnesota. The gang is also accused of stealing vehicles and violently retaliating against rivals, former members and witnesses.

Akeem Asad, 28, is accused of murdering Janeen Hancock and Alixi Johnson July 23, 2012, in Chicago, prosecutors said. Martez Easter, 27, and Cottrell Mackey, 26, are charged with killing Denero Appleton on June 1, 2014, in Chicago.

Mardi Lane, 31, and Reginald Jones, 26, are charged with the murder of Deonte Hoard on March 2, 2015, in South Deering, the U.S. attorney’s office said.

Asad, Lane, Easter and Jones are also accused of committing attempted murders on behalf of the gang, along with 27-year-old Carey Hinton, 25-year-old Tony Parker and 29-year-old Quentin Lucious

Eleven alleged members of the gang — including 42-year-old Harriette McPherson and her sons, 26-year-old Rakim Asad and 19-year-old Sincere Brannon — were indicted on federal drug and gun charges in May 2019, prosecutors said at the time. The new superseding indictment adds racketeering conspiracy charges against 10 of those defendants.

Several new gun charges and multiple counts of witness intimidation have also been added in the new indictment, prosecutors said.

Racketeering conspiracy charges typically carry sentences up to 20 years in prison, while some of the murder and attempted murder counts could carry life sentences, the U.S. attorney’s office said.

After a multi-year investigation by federal and local law enforcement agencies, 11 people were hit with criminal gun and drug charges, including a mother and two of her sons.

Harriette McPherson, 46, and her sons Rakim Asad, 26, and Sincere Brannon, 19, were among the 11 people charged with felonies, the U.S. attorney’s office in the northern district of Illinois said.

McPherson and Asad face charges of possession of cocaine and marijuana with an intent to deliver, while Brannon faces a variety of drug charges, the attorney’s office said. Asad and Brannon are also both charged with knowingly possessing a handgun during a drug crime.

Over the course of the investigation, authorities seized 29 firearms and ammunition, a machete, about a kilo of cocaine, 78 pounds of marijuana, over $190,000 in suspected illicit cash and over $300,000 worth of diamond jewelry, Rolex watches and designer clothing, according to the attorney’s office. The majority of the alleged drug trafficking happened on the South Side of Chicago.

Among the jewelry seized from Asad were two necklaces with gold pendants reading “LAFA” in diamonds, which the state’s attorney’s office believes is a reference to a street gang in Chicago.

Allegations against the other eight defendants range from conspiring to rob a drug dealer of marijuana to storing controlled substances in a storage unit, the state’s attorney’s office said.

The charges carry maximum penalties between 20 years to life in prison.
