For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Western District of New York

ROCHESTER, N.Y.-U.S. Attorney Trini E. Ross announced today that Mario Cain-Henry, 31, of Rochester, NY, who was convicted of conspiracy to distribute controlled substances and possession of a firearm in furtherance of drug trafficking, was sentenced to serve 144 months in prison by U.S. District Judge Frank P. Geraci, Jr. 

Assistant U.S. Attorney Douglas E. Gregory, who handled the case, stated that Cain-Henry is an associate of the nationally recognized Bloods Gang, and a member of a local subset known as the Immortal Stone Gorilla Gang. In December 2022, Cain-Henry and others were arrested after a lengthy investigation into narcotics trafficking, weapons possession, and associated violence by several members of the group. On December 14, 2022, several search warrants were executed at locations associated with Cain-Henry, including his residence. During the searches, investigators recovered quantities of narcotics, drug paraphernalia, cash, loaded firearms, and ammunition.

The investigation began in the aftermath of the murder of Rochester Police Investigator Anthony Mazurkewicz and the assault of Investigator Sino Seng in July 2022. It’s alleged that individuals associated with Cain-Henry were engaged in a violent feud with another group led by Brandon “B-Mack” Washington. Washington and several associates have also been charged with federal drug and weapons offenses.  

 The sentencing is the result of an investigation conducted by members of the Rochester Police Department Special Investigation Section, under the direction of Chief David Smith, the Drug Enforcement Administration, under the direction of Special Agent-in-Charge Frank Tarantino, III, New York Field Division, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco,  Firearms, and Explosives, under the direction of Special Agent-in-Charge Bryan Miller, New York Field Division.
