ATF Baltimore seeks leads on Cherry Hill fugitives

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is offering a reward of up to $1,000 each for information leading to the arrest of three men allegedly involved in a Cherry Hill gang.

Travis Eugene Alewine, Deaven Raeshawn Cherry and Terrell Luster were indicted, along with 18 others, in September 2016 for their alleged roles in a violent drug distribution conspiracy known as the Hillside Enterprise.

“There is no higher priority for ATF Baltimore than the safety of our communities,” said Amanda Hils, ATF public information officer. “These individuals have been indicted on serious charges and anyone with information about them is urged to contact us immediately.”

The gang operated for 14 years in South Baltimore’s Cherry Hill neighborhood. Hillside members often sold drugs — powder and crack cocaine, heroin, oxycodone and marijuana — at the Cherry Hill Shopping Center, according to the indictment.

Alewine, Cherry and Luster face enhanced sentences for murder. The indictment specifically alleges that Cherry was involved in the murder of two people, and that Luster and Alewine were each involved in a single murder.

Many of the Hillside Enterprise’s killings were retaliations against rival gang Up da Hill, according to the indictment. At least two of the victims were innocent bystanders.

Alewine, Cherry and Luster face a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years in prison and a maximum sentence of life in prison.

Anyone with information should contact ATF at 888-ATF-TIPS, ATFtips@atf.gov, text “ATFBAL” to 63975 or contact ATF via the mobile reportit® app.
