An associate of a local gang was sentenced to two years in prison on Thursday.
Demario Robbins, 26, was previously convicted of conspiracy to distribute cocaine through his association with the Schuele Boys Gang, according to officials.
U.S. Attorney James Kennedy says Robbins bought cocaine from another gang member and then repackaged the cocaine into smaller amounts for re-sale in the Buffalo area.
The Schuele Boys Gang, which operated in the Schuele Street area of the East Side of Buffalo, is believed to be responsible for several acts of violence and the distribution of illegal narcotics, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.
Robbins is only one of 28 Schuele Boys Gang members, associates and other individuals who have been arrested in connection to this case. To date, 19 of the 28 people charged have been convicted.
