Joe Bruno on the Mob- Crips “Gangsta” Jacks Up Old Women


Some things should be totally off limits to even the most hardened criminals. Attacking old women is one of them.

It seems that an aging Crips “gangsta,” with two of his pals, have decided that robbing old women is wonderful, and a safe thing (for them) to do. Thomas Harris, 48, from Brooklyn had the bright idea of attacking elderly women as they got out of their cars, then forcing them to drive to a nearby ATM to withdraw their hard-earned cash. One time, the three creeps even threw an old woman into the trunk of her car. These attacks happened between April 2010 and February 2011, in Brooklyn and in Queens.

One of Harris’ accomplices Wendell Jenkins, 23, was arrested in February, and Harris himself was was arrested in Oakland, California, after the US Marshals Service, working with the NYPD, got a tip that Harris had fled there. A woman accomplice has disappeared into the wind.

It’s one thing to be a crook, a common thief, a burglar, or even a bank robber. But attacking old women is beyond the pale.

Only punks do things like that.

A reputed Crip gangster who abducted and robbed seven elderly woman for their ATM cards in Queens and Brooklyn — throwing one woman in the trunk of a car trunk — was arrested Monday in California, authorities said.

Thomas Harris, 48, allegedly led a violent armed robbery group with another man and a woman who attacked the victims between April 2010 and February 2011.

The three thugs attacked the women as they got into their cars, held them up at gunpoint and forced them to drive to nearby ATMs.

Harris was arrested in Oakland after the US Marshals Service, working with the NYPD, got a tip that Harris had fled there.

The fugitive had a sub-machine handgun, two semi-automatic handguns, five pounds of pot, and ecstasy pills, according to the Marshals.

One of Harris’ alleged cohorts, Wendell Jenkins, 23, was arrested in February to pull off the heists, cops said. Jenkins was arrested in February and charged with multiple counts of robbery, cops said.

Their female partner is still on the loose, according to police.
