Indianapolis drug boss Richard (Ricky Rich) Grundy and several of his Mob Family crew lieutenants were found guilty of narcotics trafficking at a federal trial that required a change of venue from the Circle City to Evansville. The 30-year old Grundy and four co-defendants had their first trial end in a mistrial last month.
The Mob Family crew is the most notorious drug organization to ever rule the streets of Indy. Grundy and his main muscle John (Little Johnny) Means beat multiple murder raps over the past five years. Authorities peg Grundy as a suspect in ordering at least 10 gangland hits since 2011. Means, who is the suspect in a pair of 2014 double homicides, is in prison on a gun charge.
Testifying in his own defense, the plump, baby-faced Grundy told jurors the Mob Family is a hip hop music label not an organized crime syndicate and that his indictment in the case is purely a result of his reputation. Jurors convicted Grundy of heading a multi-million dollar drug empire that shipped cocaine, heroin and crystal meth from Arizona to Indiana using Greyhound buses.
