NORFOLK, Va. - The FBI is offering a reward of up to $2,500 for information leading to the arrest of a man wanted on federal drug trafficking charges.

Ronald Antonio Johnson, aka Pooh, had a warrant for his arrest issued on June 8, but he hasn't been apprehended yet.

Johnson is wanted on charges related to his involvement in an alleged conspiracy among members of a neighborhood street gang known as "Cheesetown Money Gettas," or "CMG," to distribute cocaine, crack cocaine, and heroin.

Six others accused of their involvement in the conspiracy were indicted and had warrants for their arrest issued back on June 8th as well.

The street gang conspired to distribute the drugs in Chesapeake, Norfolk, and Virginia Beach.

According to federal court documents, they have been conducting business since 2009. It was that time when CMG opened a music studio on Arrowhead drive where they stored, cooked, and prepared cocaine, crack, and heroin for distributing.

Kenny Steffen, owner of Ken's Custom Cycle, operates a business just a few units away.

"I am shocked, knowing it is right down the street from me, a couple units down," he says. "You can't see in there. I see traffic coming through here all times of the night."

The federal documents outline more than 200 drug transactions by the gang members and other conspirators and sources that are not named between 2009 and January 2016.

Among them, there are a portion at the Red Roof Inn, Marriott Hotel, and Hampton Inn on Woodlake Drive in Chesapeake.

In the spring of 2013, the documents say that Detron Jackson offered to sell cocaine in the parking lot of the Aqua Lounge Nightclub in Virginia Beach. In November, it says he sold nine ounces of cocaine for $15,000 in the parking lot of a 7-Eleven on Brambleton Avenue.

In November of 2015, documents say Ajene Jordan sold cocaine for $400 at Scandals Nightclub on Holland Road.

In January of this year, Jordan sold more cocaine outside Sidelines Sports Bar in Virginia Beach.

Anyone with information concerning Johnson is asked to call the Norfolk FBI office at (757) 455-0100.
