Two of the drug trafficking organization’s alleged leaders, Denzel Chisholm and Christopher Wilkins, along with more than a dozen of their associates were arrested in the sweep, but a warrant was issued for Miller, who was not picked up at the time.
Chisholm, his sister Shannelle and Tyrone Gomes, 31, of Hyannis, who was already in custody at the time of the raids were charged with first-degree murder in the death of Christine Ferreira, 28, whose body was found at a Route 6 rest area in September.

Christine Ferreira: her death led to the investigation of the drug-gang by feds

Miller for the past four months, has succesfully eluded an active search with authorities keeping tabs on his mother’s house. Officers watched the house for a full day to confirm that the man they had seen going in was Miller, he said.
When those inside were ordered to come out, the man who turned out to be Miller came out of the front door relatively quickly, agents said, while his mother came out of the back. Officers suspect this was a diversion tactic, as parties who surrender usually all come the same exit, he said. The mother’s boyfriend came out about 15 minutes later.
Wearing a mask, a zipped-up jacket and hat, Miller quickly began talking to officers. He and the other two were taken into custody to be debriefed, and officers realized something was awry when they found about $10,000 on the elderly man.
The edges of his eyes also made officers suspicious.“He was probably expecting us to move him outside the danger zone,” ATF spokesman Mellyn said, and then probably would have tried to sneak away.
After booking Miller refused to speak to officers and it was unclear Friday where he has been hiding for the past four months.

At the time of the April raids local and federal officials called the Nauti-Block gang “dangerous” and “a key drug operation” responsible for a significant portion of the heroin being distributed in the region
