INDIANAPOLIS -- Another member of 'The Mob', which is responsible for numerous pharmacy robberies in Marion County, was arrested on Monday, according to detectives with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department. 

Detectives say they located Julius Willis, 18, at an apartment in the 2200 block of Tradewinds Drive.

Willis was wanted on a federal arrest warrant stemming from charges from 'The Mob' takedown on May 23.

Two other men, Robert Dew, 18, and Oktober Robinson, 18, were with Willis.

The officers recovered eight semiautomatic handguns of different calibers, an AK-47 and an AR-15 rifle during a search of the apartment.  Four of the guns were listed as stolen.

$16,000 in cash and an undisclosed amount of cocaine, heroin, crack cocaine, pills and marijuana were also recovered.

Dew and Robinson were arrested on preliminary gun and narcotics charges. Willis was arrested on a federal warrant.

Nine members of 'The Mob' are accused of stealing tens of thousands of pills from CVS pharmacies between December 2014 and June 2016 and then reselling them on the streets of Indianapolis.
