Fugitive Crips Gang Member Wanted for Attempted Murder Arrested.

A fugitive member of the Crips who was wanted for attempted murder in New York City was nabbed by Mahwah police on Route 17, authorities said.
Hakeem “Flow Cash” Jamison, 28, was a passenger in a 2005 Mercedes E500 driven by a Vermont woman who committed several motor vehicle violations before Officer John Lange stopped her on the northbound highway near the Route 287 flyover, Capt. Guido Bussinelli said.

Sgt. Richard Albro quickly joined his colleague during the 10:15 a.m. stop on Monday, Aug. 28, the captain said.

After getting conflicting stories from the driver, 44-year-old Jill Steele, and Jamison, who initially refused to identify himself, they called for a police dog, Bussinelli said.

Armani, handled by Bergen County Sheriff’s Officer Dario Terrana, indicated drugs were in the vehicle, which prompted a search that turned up more than five ounces of cocaine, the captain said.

Both were taken into custody and the vehicle was seized, he said.

Authorities in New York City have identified Jamison as a member of the 8 Trey Crip set from Woodside, Queens – also known as “Tru Cash Gettas” – which they said has been at war with another Crip subset from Astoria since August 2018.

Social media and taunting rap videos have fueled the feud, leading to the indictments earlier this year of nearly two dozen participants — including Jamison — for a series of fatal and otherwise serious broad-daylight shootings at a pair of Queens public housing projects.

In one instance, Jamison and a fellow 8 Trey member were hanging out in a playground with a group of residents and their young children when two rivals approached and opened fire, authorities said.

Jamison and the man he was with shot back at them, they said.
