Four Paterson Gang Members Charged with Drug Trafficking Conspiracy; One Charged for Attempted Robbery of Postal Employee

Four members of the Paterson street gang "100k" face charges for distributing fentanyl, heroin, and cocaine, with one member also charged for attempting to rob a postal employee at gunpoint.

Paterson, NJ — Four men from Passaic County have been charged in connection with their roles in the "100k" gang, known for distributing fentanyl, heroin, and cocaine in Paterson. U.S. Attorney Philip R. Sellinger announced the charges today.

Jazmeir Reyes, aka “Baby Joe,” 19, Kyzeik Robinson, aka “Doo Doo,” 18, Michael Davis, aka “Baby Three,” 27, and Jacim Pitts, 24, all from Paterson, NJ, face charges of conspiracy to distribute controlled substances. Additionally, Reyes faces charges of attempted Hobbs Act robbery, assaulting or impeding U.S. officers, and brandishing a firearm during a crime of violence.

Davis and Pitts appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge James B. Clark III in Newark federal court and were detained. Reyes is set to make his initial appearance on June 21, 2024, while Robinson remains at large.

According to court documents and statements, law enforcement has been investigating the "100k" gang, which operates primarily in the First Ward of Paterson, since January 2022. Reyes, Robinson, and Davis are members of "100k," and Pitts belongs to "So Icey," a gang closely aligned with "100k." Between August 2023 and April 2024, undercover officers conducted controlled narcotics purchases from the gang, seizing over 100 grams of fentanyl along with heroin and cocaine.

In a separate incident on July 28, 2023, Reyes attempted to rob a mail carrier at gunpoint in Paterson, aiming to steal the carrier's arrow key, which provides access to multiple mailboxes.

The conspiracy charge carries a mandatory minimum of five years and a maximum of 40 years in prison, along with a fine of at least $5 million. Reyes faces up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine for each count of attempted robbery and assaulting or impeding U.S. officers. Additionally, the firearm charge carries a mandatory minimum of seven years and a maximum of life imprisonment, to run consecutively to other sentences, plus a fine of up to $250,000.

U.S. Attorney Sellinger credited the investigation to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), New Jersey State Police, U.S. Postal Inspection Service, Passaic County Sheriff’s Office, Jersey City Police Department, and Paterson Police Department.

This case is part of the Paterson Violent Crime Initiative (VCI), a collaboration formed in 2020 among various federal, state, county, and city agencies to combat violent crime in Paterson.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Jake A. Nasar of the Organized Crime/Gang Unit in Newark is representing the government.

The charges are accusations, and the defendants are presumed innocent unless proven guilty.
