Another Tacoma gang member now in custody in conspiracy case

One of three reputed Hilltop Crips gang members who’ve been sought in a sizable criminal conspiracy case has been arrested.

Tacoma police booked Cory T. Campbell, 22, into Pierce County Jail shortly before 8:30 p.m.

That leaves two people still on the loose in the case – Kerry T. Edwards and Errol B. Mayers. Warrants have been issued for their arrest.

Pierce County prosecutors have charged 32 men with conspiring to commit a series of violent crimes in Tacoma. All are members of the Hilltop Crips, prosecutors contend.

In addition to the conspiracy charge, Campbell has been charged with  unlawful gun possession, driveby shooting and drug-related charges.

    In general, I believe most Tacoma police are affraid to go after these people, always going after and roughing up the non violent citizens who commit misdemeanors. It was a breath of fresh air to hear that there really is an attempt to clean up our streets, and so a special thanks to those officers who actually do their jobs.
