Leader of 'Grundy Crew' Faces 10 Charges

Richard Grundy III was picked up Friday by the FBI and is accused of money laundering and drug dealing.

INDIANAPOLIS –- Richard Grundy III, leader of the 'Grundy Crew', appeared in federal court this morning following his most recent arrest.

Grundy faces 10 counts of drug dealing and money laundering.

Grundy and at least 20 others were picked up Friday by the FBI and U.S. Marshals.

Federal prosecutors say Grundy and his gang bought meth, marijuana, and heroin in Phoenix and sold it in Indy.

Grundy and the other members of his gang are being held without bond.

On Monday afternoon, Indy Mayor Joe Hogsett released a statement on the charges against Grundy and his gang: 

For years, Indianapolis neighborhoods have faced brazen violence and lawlessness orchestrated by the Grundy Crew. Their wrongdoing is exactly why we have redoubled our efforts to promote collaboration between local, state and federal law enforcement partners.

Thanks to their work, these bad actors are once again behind bars and dozens of illegally possessed weapons are off the streets.

On behalf of our city, I’d like to thank United States Attorney Josh Minkler and the FBI for their swift work over the weekend in apprehending the accused. Because of their efforts, our community is safer this week than it was last.
