A man from North Andover is now in prison for his involvement in a crime
ring as a loan shark and bookkeeper. Apparently, the offender, J.G., was
suspected of criminal activity back in 2009 so investigators launched
an investigation. The former bookkeeper was found going to collect money
from people who were falling behind on debt payments. According to police,
J.G. would frequently use violence, even in front of different victims'
families, to push them to pay. Investigators found this out because they
had tapped J.G.'s phone, and were listening in while the suspect and
his peers collected debts with threats, stalking, coercion, harassment,
After the investigation was over, police had accumulated 103 indictments
against 31 offenders for charges like gaming, extortion, trafficking,
illegal possession of firearms, home invasion, kidnapping, and loan sharking.
In addition, J.G. and three of his counterparts are charged with robbing
a company of almost $2 million dollars. Investigators report that they
recovered almost $1.5 million during the time they were looking into his case.
J.G. has pleaded guilty to criminal usury,
conspiracy, and gaming, but also faces charges of
assault and battery, intimidation of a witness, attempt of perjury, and attempted extortion.
J .G. allegedly was an enforcer for crime boss, M.R, who is already serving
prison sentences for breaking and entering, as well as
drug trafficking. His prison sentence currently totals about 20 years, but he also has
additional charges still pending.
