NYPD Busts Gun Traffickers in Harlem

By

The NYPD and Manhattan district attorney announced charges today against 64-year-old Mitchell "Mickey" Collins and fifteen others from various Harlem crews — including the East River Army, Six-Net, and Total Money Gang — for selling about 88 illegal firearms to undercover officers over the last ten months. The department also seized more than 100 weapons in the operation they dubbed "Mickey Mouse Trap," because they had to call it something.
