Gang member sentenced to over 30 years in prison for murder, racketeering

WHITE PLAINS – A Yonkers man was sentenced in federal court in White Plains on Wednesday to 30 years and one day for crimes committed as part of a Yonkers-based street gang, “Cruddy 650.”

Those crimes included the murder of Andrew Folsom, who was killed in Greenacres, Florida, on May 26, 2014.

Kevin Wiltshire, 22, pled guilty on April 10, 2017, to participating in the Cruddy 650 racketeering conspiracy, shooting Folsom in the head during a dispute in the parking lot of a Walmart store in Florida.  After the murder, Wiltshire and other fellow gang members returned to Yonkers where he continued to engage in acts of violence on behalf of the gang.

During the summer of 2014, Wiltshire and a co-conspirator shot into a crowd near Oliver Street in Yonkers. Although their objective was to kill rival gang members, no one was seriously hurt. In September of that same year, Wiltshire and several co-conspirators again fired on rival gang members in the vicinity of Oliver Avenue in Yonkers.

Cruddy 650 was founded in 2013 as the result of an alliance between gang members from various parts of Yonkers.
