NORMAN — Police are recommending racketeering charges for a group of people who identified themselves as being part of the “Murder Money Gang.”

Investigators working cases involving armed robberies, vehicle thefts, drive-by-shootings and drug related crimes in Norman identified the people behind the crimes as members of the gang, according to a news release.

The Norman Police Department recommended Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations, also known as RICO, charges to the Cleveland County District Attorney’s office.

Police said the members of the gang went on a crime spree that lasted from June through December and that they also committed crimes in jurisdictions outside Norman.

The people involved with the Murder Money Gang are currently in custody at various detention centers. Their names were not released.
