Police team work ganged up on South Bend crime: Prosecutor
Police say 21 local gang members are off the streets and crime is down because of it. St. Joseph County Prosecutor Mike Dvorak credited several area police agencies Wednesday and awarded six South Bend Police officers for their efforts. The specific gang police targeted is called "Cash Out Boyz."  In Spring 2011, officers noticed a trend in robberies, home invasions, burglaries and murders in South Bend. The department dedicated five officers to work together with other departments and the prosecutor's office to solve dozens of cases and get the Cash Out Boyz off the streets.  "What the public needs to know is that several times they'll take and address issues and question what we may or not be doing," said Detective Sgt. Gene Eyster. "And a lot of times, those are things we can't divulge although behind the scenes we are addressing them."
