FBI: Mad Stone Bloods street gang leader nabbed in New York

NEW YORK (AP) — The FBI has arrested a New York man it describes as the “global chairman” of the violent Mad Stone Bloods street and prison gang.

William Seeley, of Brooklyn, is charged with racketeering in a drug conspiracy indictment handed up last month in Norfolk, Virginia.

Seeley’s defense attorney did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Federal prosecutors say the Mad Stone Bloods operate in several states from Texas to Connecticut and report to leaders in New York.

The 27-count indictment says the gang trafficked in heroin, cocaine and methamphetamine and committed a slew of shootings and robberies in Virginia.

Prosecutors say gang members around the country reported to Seeley and relied on him to authorize violence against rival gangs.

Seeley is scheduled to appear Friday in Manhattan federal court.
