The 1-8 Trey Bloods are based out of the Bronx in New York.

Harvey and Wiseman are also charged with violating the Street Gang Terrorism and Prevention Act.

The first indictment stems from an undisclosed incident in March 2022.

It charges Harvey with eight counts of violating the Street Gang Terrorism and Prevention Act and four counts of possession of a firearm by a first offender probationer. Wiseman faces 12 counts of violating the Street Gang Terrorism and Prevention Act and four counts of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

"These indictments are a direct result of our strong partnerships with local and state law enforcement, who want to ensure that the cases they investigate are pursued vigorously in court," said Carr. "Wherever criminal street gangs are operating, Georgians want to know that the cavalry is coming. That is exactly what we are doing with our new Gang Prosecution Unit, and we are proud to be in this fight to keep all Georgians safe."

The Gang Prosecution Unit was established in July 2022.
