Hitman Of "Grundy Crew" Sentenced On Gun Charges

John Means was sentenced Tuesday to 10 years for unlawful possession of a firearm by a serious violent felon.

INDIANAPOLIS -- (RTV6) A man with alleged ties to the so-called Grundy Crew was sentenced Tuesday to 10 years behind bars in an unrelated case, according to the Marion County prosecutor.

John Means and four other people were found in a home in the 500 block of North Gray St. on February 6 as the Marion County Sheriff's Office served a warrant. 

Deputies say they also discovered suspected drugs, digital scales, and multiple handguns located inside a cold air return vent inside the home.

After an initial hearing in the case, a Sheriff’s deputy said he overheard Means yell to another inmate, “I had a Glock 27, but they couldn’t charge me with it.” A Glock 27 was one of the handguns located in the house in the cold air return.

Means was convicted on October 19 and sentenced Tuesday to 10 years in the Indiana Department of Correction for unlawful possession of a firearm by a serious violent felon.

Means faces additional charges of unlawful possession of a firearm by a serious violent felon and operating a motor vehicle without ever receiving a license in an unrelated case filed in July.

In April, prosecutors dropped the remaining charges against Means stemming from two 2014 double murders.

Marion County prosecutors had described Means as a hitman for the "Grundy Crew" – an alleged criminal organization led, they said, by Richard Grundy III.
