NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Authorities on Long Island have busted more than a dozen alleged members of the Crips in what officials are calling the "most significant gang bust" in Nassau County history.

Cops and federal agents on Monday arrested 14 suspects believed to be members of the Rollin' 60s crew on charges of attempted murder, assault, robbery, gun sales, and drug sales, officials said. Authorities also busted four alleged associates of the gang.

"These arrests are a crushing blow to a notorious gang that has flooded the streets with guns, drugs, and violence for more than a decade," District Attorney Kathleen Rice said in a statement. "It's a shame to see so many young lives wasted, but our communities will be safer with these dangerous and violent criminals locked behind bars for a very long time."

Among those arrested is the gang's accused leader, Raphael "Gusto" Osborne, 27, of Roosevelt, authorities said. The DA's office said that Rollin' 60s crew has been operating in Roosevelt since 2001.

The gang is accused of running guns from southern states with lax gun laws and reselling them in Nassau County, authorities said.

Gang members are also accused of selling drugs and committing several shootings, including one of a police officer, authorities said.
