Buffalo, NY – A multiple count indictment has been handed down by a federal grand jury against four Buffalo residents.

Thamud Eldridge, Kashika Speed, Kevin Allen and Galen Rose are all facing racketeering, drug, robbery and murder charges connected with gang-like operations on the East Side from 2003 through 2005.

The charges against all the defendants carry a maximum sentence of life in prison.
