More information on the gang’s criminal history:
The members of the Gremlins Gang have racked up dozens of arrests between them. They’re accused of dealing drugs, posting photos with weapons on Facebook, Instagram and You Tube, obstructing justice by threatening with witnesses and victims and using their families to cover up their crimes, according to the indictment. In particular, the Nakia Zenon and her sons, Darron Carter and Aaron Carter, were all indicted. Zenon owns TOPS Auto Sales and Rental in Lafayette, which was also named in the indictment because members allegedly used vehicles from the company for transportation during crimes and in an attempt to conceal their identities from law enforcement, according to the indictment. Zenon is the only member who’s bonded out of jail. She remains under house arrest.
The indictment also alleges that members of the gang discussed the sale of firearms on recorded jail telephone calls. The members are accused of committing violent crimes, according to the indictment. However, most of their violent crimes were dismissed, most of the time because victims refuse to cooperate.
Two of them have been accused of murder — Roland Bernard and Kendall Breaux. Bernard was found not guilty in a drive-by shooting that killed a Vermilion man in 2009 after the murder weapon was never found. Breaux is accused of killing a man in Acadia Parish in April. He remains in jail.
