Criminal gangs in Detroit have been known for years for their violence, but one gang took it to a whole new level and turned to COVID-related fraud to pump millions of dollars into their hands.
It wasn’t until one gang member got them busted by showing off a fancy ring in an ATM surveillance video that their scheme ended.
A photo showing alleged gang member Brandon Bowditch cashing out stolen COVID relief money at an ATM, according to federal agents was what did them in.
Bowditch was wearing a “lucky” four-leaf clover pendant. Investigators believe the pendant the 31-year-old Detroit gang member was wearing was paid for with stolen COVID relief money.
Watch a great video on how the feds took down this Detroit Gang linked to pandemic relief fraud.
