February 26, 2007

(STNG) CHICAGO The Chicago Office of the FBI is asking for the public’s help in locating a 32-year-old Chicago man who has been the subject of a nationwide manhunt since May 2006 when he was charged with multiple federal drug violations.

Alphonso Stewart, whose last know address was 5969 W. Ohio St., was charged in a criminal complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Chicago, along with 55 other members and associates of the New Breeds Street Gang, according to an FBI release.

Stewart, who is allegedly a member or associate of the Black Gangsters -- also known as the New Breeds -- is wanted for federal drug conspiracy, the release said. The charges against Stewart and the others came as a result of “ Operation Impunity,” an investigation that targeted the gang’s sale and distribution of illegal drugs in the area of 18th Street and Karlov Avenue, the release said.

Considered armed and dangerous, Stewart is an alleged member of one of the city’s largest and most violent street gangs.

He is described as a black male with a medium build, 6-feet 2 and 210 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes, and has been known to have a thin mustache or goatee.
