New York rapper Casanova is among 18 people who have been indicted over alleged gang-related crimes, including racketeering, murder, drugs, firearms, and fraud offenses.

Acting US Attorney Audrey Strauss and other law enforcement officials issued a statement on Tuesday, said Untouchable Gorilla Stone Nation gang members “committed terrible acts of violence, trafficked in narcotics, and even engaged in brazen fraud by exploiting benefits programs meant to provide assistance in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.”

The statement said 17 of the 18 named in the indictment were in custody.

But the FBI’s New York office then tweeted a picture of Casanova, whose legal name is Caswell Senior, saying he was still being sought.

Strauss said in a statement: “As alleged in the Indictment, members of Gorilla Stone committed terrible acts of violence, trafficked in narcotics, and even engaged in brazen fraud by exploiting benefits programs meant to provide assistance in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Because of that, communities across the Southern District – from Poughkeepsie to Peekskill to New York City – suffered. Most shocking, as alleged in the indictment, a minor was murdered in furtherance of the gang’s activities.”

FBI Assistant Director William F. Sweeney Jr. also said: “As the indictment alleges, the violence and drug activity committed by these gang members threatened the safety of our communities and placed innocent lives at risk.

“Their unabashed criminal behavior, as alleged, included the murder of a 15 year-old and even extended to defrauding programs meant for people suffering economic hardship due to the pandemic.”
