Federal prosecutors say they have put away a violent member of the Omaha-area Crips Gang.
22-year-old Gregory Bahati, known also as “Pooh Bear” and “Murk 2x,” of Omaha has been sentenced to eight years in prison and five years of supervised released by federal District Judge Joseph Bataillon.
Federal prosecutors accused Bahati of participating in a racketeering conspiracy involving acts of violence including attempted murder and assaults and drug distribution.
Bahati pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to participate in racketeering activity, one count of threatening violence in aid of racketeering, and one count of brandishing a firearm during a crime of violence.
Bahati confessed to participating in the Omaha-area chapter of the Crips, also known as the “40th Avenue Crips” and “44th Avenue Crips.” Bahati, according to prosecutors, admitted to committing acts of violence and distributing cocaine to gang members; acts of violence included assaulting an individual who insulted the gang and threatening another with a gun.
