FBI Conducts Three More Arrests in Brooklyn Gang Case, Search for One Additional Subject Continues

FBI New York August 26, 2010

The FBI and NYPD arrested eight members of the “Nine-Trey Gangsters,” also known as the “Bugout Boyz,” on August 25 in Brooklyn, New York. Also on August 25, Tyquan Rogers was arrested in Kissimmee, Florida by FBI agents from the Tampa Division, and Robert Melendez was arrested in Durham, North Carolina by FBI agents from the Charlotte Division. This afternoon, Robert Montemoino surrendered to FBI agents from the Tampa Division in the Orlando area. All arrests were conducted without incident.

One additional man remains at large and is being sought by the FBI. James Dowtin is indicted in this case.

“This man is accused of serious crimes and should be considered armed and dangerous. Someone knows where he is and should call the FBI or local police if they have information. There is a reward for information leading to Dowtin’s arrest. A phone call from a citizen can go a long way to help keep the city safe,” said Special Agent Richard Kolko.
