Police raid nets alleged gang members in Dorchester

Thirty people are facing charges today in a crackdown on two street gangs who terrorized residents in the Bowdoin-Geneva section of Dorchester and the Uphams Corner section of Roxbury, federal prosecutors said this afternoon.

“This community has been in desperate need of reprieve from the violence. We hope the arrests and prosecution of the defendants will quiet the streets and improve the quality of life for all residents,” US Attorney Carmen Ortiz said in a statement.
