Columbia Point Dawgs Gang Leader Sentenced for Drug Trafficking

A leader of the Boston street gang, Columbia Point Dawgs, was sentenced in federal court in Boston for trafficking oxycodone.

Demetrius Williams, a/k/a Troll, 30, of Roxbury, was sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Richard G. Stearns to 151 months in prison and five years of supervised release. In December 2016, Williams pleaded guilty to RICO conspiracy and conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute cocaine, cocaine base and heroin. Demetrius Williams, one of 48 defendants tied to the CPD, was indicted in June 2015 on racketeering, drug trafficking, and firearms charges.

Williams, was involved in the importation and distribution of at least 880 grams of cocaine base, 10 kilograms of cocaine, and 700 grams of heroin in Massachusetts, along with other members and associates of the Columbia Point Dawgs (CPD), including his brothers Yancey Williams and Herbert Small, and father Yancey Calhoun.

According to documents filed in court, the CPD, also known on the street as “the Point,” was Boston’s largest and most influential citywide gang. The criminal organization started in the 1980s in the former Columbia Point Housing Development (now Harbor Point) and, over the years, gang members established drug trafficking crews throughout Boston. It is alleged that the CPD was responsible for the distribution of multiple kilo quantities of heroin, cocaine, crack cocaine, and oxycodone throughout Boston and Maine.
