Member of Bloods receives 11 1/2 years

KEW GARDENS — A Brooklyn member of the Bloods street gang is expected to be sentenced to 11 1/2 years in prison after he pleaded guilty Tuesday to the December 2009 armed robberies of two livery cab drivers in Jamaica, Queens District Attorney Richard Brown said.

Mithcell Bond, 20, of 1552 Pacific St., admitted that he entered a Red Cap Car Service livery cab around 2 a.m. Dec. 27, 2009, with an unapprehended man at 177-18 106th Ave. in Jamaica when one of the men shocked the driver with a stun gun while the other stole cash from the center console of the vehicle before fleeing, Brown said.

Four days later, at around 1 a.m. Dec. 31, 2009, in front of 177-20 106th Ave., Bond sat in the back seat of a livery car operated by a driver for Quiquyana Car Service and put a knife against the driver’s neck and demanded cash and his wallet before fleeing, Brown said.

Bond appeared Monday before Queens Supreme Court Justice Ronald D. Hollie to plead guilty to two counts of robbery, the DA said.

Hollie set Bond’s sentencing for July 21 and indicated he would sentence the gang member to 11 1/2 years in prison, Brown said.
