The Brunswick-area leader of the Rolling 20’s Bloods gang was sentenced earlier this week to 25 years in federal prison for his role in a violent drug trafficking organization that operated in Southeast Georgia and elsewhere. 38-year-old Calvin Lewis was caught on a wire encouraging his underlings to use guns to protect their territory and attack rivals.
Lewis was one of 19 conspirators in Brunswick convicted as part of an investigation dubbed by law enforcement as “Operation Bloody Prince.” The operation was investigated through the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF), which is comprised of local, state and federal law enforcement agents. Melvina Lewis, Calvin Lewis’ wife, was previously sentenced to 165 months in federal prison; their step-son, Jamar Bradley, was sentenced to 215 months in prison.
Evidence presented during numerous hearings revealed that members of the Rolling 20’s Bloods gang endured “beat ins” as part of their initiations. During a lengthy undercover investigation, FBI agents and Glynn County Police Department investigators conducted multiple wiretaps to gather evidence and to dismantle Lewis’ drug organization.
Wire intercepts revealed that Lewis encouraged his fellow gang members to gather firearms to protect their drug trafficking organization and to retaliate against threats, both perceived and real. Investigating agents were also able to determine that Lewis and other conspirators sold kilograms of cocaine and crack cocaine from “trap” houses located throughout Brunswick, Georgia.
