Tony Yayo Associate Arrested in Queens Drug Sweep
The Queens, NY District Attorney’s office recently announced the arrest of Lowell “Lodi Mack” Fletcher, a self proclaimed member of 50 Cent’s G-Unit crew, during a massive drug sweep in the Far Rockaway section of Queens. According to the DA’s office, Lowell was a lieutenant in a local faction of the Bloods street gang that ran a large-scale, multi-county narcotics trafficking operation. Authorities claim the gang brought in as much as $15,000 per week from their distribution of narcotics throughout Queens and surrounding areas. A total of 34 alleged Bloods gang members and their associates were also nabbed in the sweep, including Robert “Dead Eye” Baley, an aspiring rapper and purported leader of the crew. In May, Fletcher was charged with menacing, endangering the welfare of a child and assault in connection with the alleged assault by Tony Yayo of G-Unit rival Jimmy “Henchmen” Rosemond’s 14 year-old son. According to police reports, Fletcher stands accused of flashing a handgun at the boy. Yayo, who was also charged in the incident, and claims he has a witness who can clear his name, is due back in court on October 30.
