On May 13, 2010, the FBI’s Hudson Valley Safe Streets Task Force (HVSSTF) conducted a major operation in Newburgh, New York. Seventy-eight gang members were indicted in the Southern District of New York on various federal charges. Starting in the early morning hours, over 500 law enforcement personnel carried out a major arrest operation.
Fourteen fugitives were originally being sought by the FBI and the HVSSTF following the operation. Several have already been captured, and the FBI and the HVSSTF are searching for three remaining fugitives and seek the public’s assistance.

Supervisory Special Agent Jim Gagliano, leader of the HVSSTF said, “We have had tremendous success in apprehending most of these fugitives, but are still waiting to round up the remaining three who we believe are hiding out in the Newburgh, New York area. The investigation will continue at full speed until all these men are brought to justice. We urge the public to contact law enforcement with any information on their whereabouts.”
“With their pictures displayed on various media outlets, someone out there will certainly recognize these individuals. The public can play a valuable role in tracking down the remaining fugitives. Anyone with information on their whereabouts is requested to call the FBI or local police,” said Special Agent Richard Kolko.
The Hudson Valley Safe Streets Task Force is comprised of agents and law enforcement officers from DOJ (SDNY); City of Newburgh PD; New York State Police; Orange County D.A.’S Office; Orange County Sheriff’s Office; ATF; ICE; USMS; NYS Dept. Of Corrections; City of Middletown PD; Town of Newburgh PD; Town of New Windsor PD; Village of Monticello PD; City of Poughkeepsie PD; Dutchess County Sheriff’s Office; Beacon Police Department; Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office; and NYS Department of Parole.
