Roger Anthony, 35, fined $1,000 for shirt supporting criminal gang

Anthony told police he is the “boss of the Ghost Town Crips”

Today, inside the courtroom of Magistrate Adolph Lucas, Jr., Roger Anthony, 35, pleaded guilty to displaying support for a criminal gang and professing to belong to a criminal gang, namely the Ghost Town Crips gang.

According to the report, at 10:00 yesterday morning, members of the Gang Suppression Unit were on mobile patrol on Vernon Street. Upon reaching the corner of Mayflower and Vernon Streets, they stopped their vehicle when they observed Anthony talking to another person.

They searched the men, but nothing illegal was found on their persons. However, the officers noticed that the shirt that Anthony was wearing had “GTC” on the collar with “30’s”. They also noticed that the pocket of the shirt had “OG” printed on it, along with the word “MOB.”

When police asked Anthony what “GTC” meant, Anthony allegedly replied “Ghost Town Crips,” and that he is the leader of that gang. He allegedly further stated that “MOB” was his alias.

After the facts of the case were read to the court, Anthony asked that he be fined for the offense instead of being confined.

Magistrate Lucas then fined him $500 for supporting a criminal gang, which is to be paid by April 12, 2013, or spend 5 months in prison. For professing to belonging to a gang, he was also fined $500 to be paid by June 14, 2013, or spend another 5 months in prison.
