Chicago Gang Snitches
-Does not include suburbs at this time: if either the snitch or snitchee are from Chicago, will be included, but not if both are from suburbs.
-Does not include where they were snitched on something for something they did not commit.
-Does not include if a group are all hit with the same charge, and they explained each other's roles, unless they snitched on someone outside that wasn't hit.
-Only includes snitching on their own gang, but I may set up a separate page for snitching on rival gangs, and non-gang members.
-An Ambrose named Hector Serrano (Boobies) b. 1973 snitched on Jose Negrete (b. 1956) in 2013, for possessing an AK-47. Why did he do that? He did that so he could get a reduction in his own charge. Both of them are deceased. Hector died in Sept. 2016, of overdose, Jose Negrete died April 2018, of dialysis.
-An earlier Ambrose was killed by other Ambrose while in the front seat of a car under the Metra bridges on 16th near Halsted, he was slashed in the throat, late '80s or early '90s.
-A Count named Michael Maddox, 23, recorded a McKinley Park gang meeting held by Babyface Nelson on April 23, 1999, on an older Polish woman named Jean Cusulick, 50, who constantly made 911 calls against the Counts, and was a CAPS volunteer. At the end of the meeting Michael Maddox was supplied 2 guns which he gave to CPD.
-July 2008: Fabian Gomez (Gato), a member of the Latin Saints street gang, testified that he had been working with the Chicago police as a confidential informant since May 2001. Gomez provided information in exchange for the dropping of aggravated kidnapping charges against him in an unrelated case.
-The Chicago police were unable to identify any suspects in the shooting until January 16, 2002, when Jesus Nevarez was arrested for engaging in three separate narcotics transactions with undercover Chicago police officers. Upon learning of the severity of the drugs charges he was facing, Nevarez told the Chicago police officers he had some information on the homicide in question. On the basis of this information, the Chicago police subsequently arrested defendant, Garcia, Melendez, and Montelongo.
-May 2010: Edwin Rolnicki, a former Almighty Saint, testified that he was at the meeting and recalled that Schoen was thirsty for blood and everyone was pissed off. [...] After being released from the police station, Rolnicki went to the defendant's house where he met with the defendant, Gallardo, and Garcia. The group discussed what happened and the defendant said "it wasn't over" and that he was going to hire an attorney to see if anyone was cooperating with the police. Rolnicki testified that he cooperated with police and, as a consequence, he left the Almighty Saints gang and had not spoken to any gang members since that day.

Macho's son got around 80 years, Pancho snitched his way down to around 10 years. Fatman G was walking with Pacman at the time when the incident happened. Note that Pancho did not initially snitch on who in the car actually did the murder, but eventually his mother stepped up and got him to snitch, and then she relocated.

According to the Tribune "Four Chicago men were ready to storm inside a home, use tape to tie up the people inside and shoot them if necessary in order to take off with more than 30 kilograms of cocaine, according to a federal complaint released Thursday.

Bloomingdale, they spotted 14 year-old Brian DeLeon, and 19 year-old Esteban Miranda came out with a metal bseball bat.

The victim was still in a coma at that time.

Black P. Stone snitches.
-The 1st snitch in the history of the BPSN was James Duffy, 21, also known as James Nevels, who on Feb. 4, 1972, testified how he collected $48/weekly checks for attending a federally financed training center and then kicked money back to gang leaders. He said last Sept., Fort and 1 other defendant held a meeting of about 20 trainees at a center by 67th and Stony Island.
-Adam Battiste, 30, was placed on 5 years probation on May 25, 1972, due to testifying against the rest. Assistant U.S. attorney Samuel Skinner said his life is in danger due to his cooperation.
BPSN had a CPD raid 1985 where 26 arrested, due to 2 snitch. Some of the things he snitched on were:
-The April 30 killing of rival gang member Lindsay Williams and the shooting of Rodney Williams and James Love, both independent drug dealers. The 3 were ambushed in a fast-food chicken restaurant at 63rd Street and University Avenue in retaliation for stealing the baseball cap of a young El Rukn. Alvin Tony, 32, has been charged with murder and attempted murder.
-The July 25, 1983, beating of Maurice Coleman, who languished in a coma until his death April 29. Coleman, who lived in a South Side building owned by the gang, was killed by gang members who thought he was snooping on them. Charged with murder in the beating were Ray Ferguson, 32, Eddie Franklin, 19, Nathaniel Jackson, 29, and Samuel Carter, 21.
-This snitch attended a meeting of gang generals when Fort reportedly ordered the killing of Willie Bibbs, 33, of 4120 S. Prairie Ave. Bibbs was shot to death by 2 men wearing ski masks as he emerged from a South Side tavern on June 15, 1981.
1991 federal snitch: Jeff Fort's sister's husband.
-Henry Harris, snitched because Jeff Fort's son caught him having an affair with Jeff Fort's wife Diana, and Jeff Fort's son, Antonio, did not tell anyone. Harris testified that Fort once ordered his son a beat down in 1986, because he had tried to start his own gang. Over the phone, Fort said "Son, I told you I keep my promises" over the phone. Then, 6 of 14 ambassadors formed a circle around Antonio, 19, and Fort said "Ambassadors, I want you to drum him until I tell you to stop." When the men hesitaed, Fort said "I can't hear nothing."
-Other snitches include Harry Evans and Trammel Davis.
Note: the fall of the BPSN in 1986 is largely due to a cokehead named Sam Buford "Magic." Sam was not a Black P. Stone, but has ties with them. His relation with the BPSN began in 1967 when he dated Eugene Hairston's sister. He began to cooperate with police in early 1986 after he was arrested on charges of attempted murder and unlawful possession of weapons and drugs while still on parole for heroin conviction. He was paid $10,000. Sam Buford testified that he introduced an FBI agent to a senior gang leader, Alan Knox, which resulted in the FBI agent selling an M-72 antitank rocket in July 1986 for $1,850. It was sold to Knox and Melvin Mayes in a south suburban Lansing motel room. Buford has also been in the El Rukn temple during nation meetings, but testified sometimes it wasn't in English.
When asked by defense lawyers if he would use cocaine if it were placed to him in the courtroom, he responded "I'd be mighty tempted."
