BUFFALO, N.Y.-Acting U.S. Attorney James P. Kennedy, Jr. announced today that a federal grand jury has returned separate indictments charging Camp Street Gang Members, Mario McGee, 36, and his brother, Tramell McGee, 34, both of Buffalo, NY, with possession with intent to distribute and distribution of cocaine. The charge carries a maximum penalty of 20 years and a $1,000,000 fine.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Patricia Astorga, who is handling the case, stated that the defendants are members of the Camp Street Gang which operates in the Camp Street area of the City of Buffalo.
