The alleged leader of the Spanish Town-based Blackman Gang, Andre Bryan, was today remanded when he appeared in the Home Circuit Court.
So too were his five other co-accused, which includes his 53-year-old mother and his girlfriend.
Thirty-three-year-old Bryan is charged with leading a criminal organisation and attempting to recruit an adult to a criminal organisation.
His mother, Millicent Brown, his brother Kevaughn Green, 25, another man Davion Edwards otherwise called 'Lizard' and Boswell Rhoden alias 'Stefan' are charged with being a part of a criminal organisation.
Brown is also charged with obtaining a benefit from a criminal organisation and Bryan's girlfriend, 27-year-old Alicia Brown, is charged with providing a benefit to a criminal organisation.
All six are to return to court on April 6 when bail applications are to be made by their attorneys.
The police reported on Tuesday that Bryan and his relatives were held on March 4 during an operation at a house they rented in Upper St Andrew.
The two other men were held the following day.
