Cops raid home after video shows gang members boast about guns, drugs

Harvey police said they made a major drug bust Wednesday, after they were tipped off about a YouTube video showing a purported gang member bragging about drugs, guns, and dead dogs.

In the video provided to media by Harvey Police, authorities say 24-year-old gang member Ivory King, also known as “Monk,” boasts about having a gun while on house arrest.

King also brags about dog fighting, one of the dogs dying during a fight, and the pit bulls on the property.

Police executed a search warrant early Wednesday at 180 W. 158th St. They seized handguns, several rounds of ammunition and several bags of marijuana.

“If individuals want to use social media and conduct criminal activity, I would continue to encourage it,” Harvey Police Deputy Chief Gregory Thomas says. “Thank you.”
