Two members of the Billies East Side Bloods, a local set of the United Blood Nation, operating in the Florence and Myrtle Beach areas of South Carolina, were sentenced to 5 and 7 years in prison on drug and gun charges today.
Spencer Johnson and Frank Truitt, both 27 years of age, were sentenced to 87 months imprisonment and 71 months imprisonment, respectively, after pleading guilty to participating in drug and firearm conspiracies.
According to Assistant U.S. Attorney Andy Moorman, Johnson was a high-ranking gang member who was principally responsible for transporting to New York firearms stolen by gang members, including Truitt. Once in New York, Johnson would purchase heroin and return with it to South Carolina. Johnson, Truitt, and other gang members would then sell the heroin locally in South Carolina.
