Investigators still looking for more "Goonz Gang' members

Posted: Updated:

Investigators say they're still looking for "several" members of the infamous "Goonz Gang."

Police believe the gang was responsible for dozens of home invasions between 2008 and 2010, targeting mostly drug dealers.

Several ex-members have been issued long prison sentences in federal court, including Tony "Taliban" Taylor just yesterday (Tuesday).

Taylor got 28 years after investigators believe he went on at least four "runs" with the Goonz Gang, including one robbery where he held a gun to the head of a 5-year-old girl and literally threw her 7-year-old sibling across a room.

The leader of the gang, George Fitzgerald, is also serving a more than two decade prison sentence.

Investigators said the former members they're looking for are still out of the streets, and probably still committing violent crimes.

Detectives from Botetourt County, Vinton, Roanoke County, Roanoke, and Franklin County, as well as federal authorities, helped bust up the gang after a robbery in Botetourt County in late 2009.

If you can help with any information on any members still out there, call your local police.
