An alleged Bloods gang member was sentenced to over 18 years in prison for impersonating a New York City Police Department officer, threatening a drug dealer at gunpoint and raping the dealer’s sister, the Department of Justice announced Friday.
Devone Jefferys, known as “Moneybags,” is a reputed member of the Bloods gang, according to the New York Post, and was convicted of robbery and extortion charges in October 2019, the Department of Justice announced Friday.

The pair bound the three women with duct tape and told them to lie on the ground, according to the DOJ. The drug dealer’s sister reportedly threw a bag of heroin out of a window, so Jefferys forced her into an alley and raped her, prosecutors said.
