Members tattoo 856 on the inside of their lips to indicate rank.
|Project Monarch was born in the spring of 2014, bringing charges against 12 individuals for selling drugs on behalf of the 856 Gang. The next week the 856 Gang was back again with a whole new crew. In August 2014, the group was targeted again in Project Gloom. They soon sent another crew to sell cocaine and collect drug debts left behind by the previous gang members. |
Things seemed quiet on the 856 Gang front after two more search warrants in July 2015, with 23 more arrests. Project Green Manalishi resulted in one of the largest drug seizures in the territory in a decade.
