Bloods Member Pleads Guilty to Violent Acts

The 26-year-old resident of Prince William County, Virginia, known by the gang moniker “Boo,” has admitted participating in the carjacking of two individuals who were allegedly selling marijuana in May 2013.

Following the carjacking, members of the Bloods street gang, using one of the carjacking victims’ drivers license as a guide as well as the house key found on the victim’s key chain, committed a home invasion robbery at one of the carjacking victim’s homes later that same evening.

During the home invasion, two innocent bystanders were tied up with zip ties and held at gunpoint, and one victim was sexually assaulted.

In addition to the carjacking and home invasion, Boo also participated in an assault where he and his co-conspirators threw bricks through the windows of a home and then fired gunshots into the home, which was occupied at the time.

Abdur R. Roland pleaded guilty to charges of Hobbs Act robbery, use of a firearm during a crime of violence, and being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Roland could get a maximum penalty of life in prison when he is sentenced in May 2015.
