Former NYPD officer was recently arrested after she allegedly tipped off her boyfriend “a gang leader” about an investigation and helped him flee the country.
33-Year-old Gina Mestre was part of the 52nd Precinct’s Public Safety Unit in 2020 and involved in an “intimate relationship” with Andrew “Caballo” Done.
According to the indictment Mestre started providing him with information about the federal probe into his gang, the Shooting Boys and helped him flee after he had murdered a rival gang member in the Bronx.
Gina Mestre, of Mohegan Lake, New York, was charged with racketeering conspiracy, conspiracy to obstruct justice, conspiracy to obstruct an official proceeding, and accessory after the fact to murder in aid of racketeering.
As alleged, Gina Mestre shamelessly exploited her position of public trust to assist gang members in her own NYPD precinct that were terrorizing the Bronx by committing robberies, murders, drug trafficking, and other acts of violence,” U.S. Attorney Damian Williams said.
On Feb. 22, 23, Done was sentenced to 35 years in prison.
Mestre, 33, faces charges of one count of racketeering conspiracy, one count of conspiracy to obstruct justice, one count of conspiracy to obstruct an official proceeding, and one count of accessory after the fact to murder in aid of racketeering.
