NEW YORK — Three more alleged members of the Trinitarios gang were apprehended in a continuation of raids that began Wednesday, Chief of Detectives Dermot Shea tweeted Thursday.

Raimy Carrasco, 19; Oliver Fernandez, 25 and Jery Peguero, 23 were all taken into custody in connection with a gang conspiracy case being prosecuted by the Manhattan District Attorney’s office.

The NYPD is still looking for Christopher Acosta, 20, and Jorge Marques-Neto, 23, Shea said. They’re wanted in connection with “various acts of gang violence” in Manhattan and the Bronx.

Ten men tied to the Los Sures set of the Trinitarios were arrested Wednesday in NYPD raids. The indictment lists conspiracy attempted murder, assault and gang assault charges.

“They instilled fear in communities across Upper Manhattan and the Bronx, chasing their victims into bodegas and restaurants and brutally attacking them with knives, batons, and machetes,” Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance said in a statement.

Anyone with information on Acosta and Marques-Neto is asked to contact police.
