Gang Members Busted For Bragging About Being Gang Members On Facebook

Two members of the Crazy White Boys gang learned that if you are a felon and not allowed to own a gun you probably shouldn't pose with one on Facebook.

The duo belong to the Crazy White Boyz street gang and were recently arrested by Marion County Sheriff's Office detectives for violating their parole by posing with firearms on Facebook.

From the Marion County Sheriff's Department' press release:

Also, both suspects had gang-related photographs on Facebook. McDonald and Edwards are reportedly members of the Crazy White Boys Criminal Street Gang.

"The still images attached to these Facebook accounts promote and further the interests of the criminal street gang," said Captain James Pogue, Marion County Sheriff's Office Public Information Officer. The images show the suspects committing criminal activity, in this case: possession of a firearm by convicted felons.
