MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -  Members of the Dixie Homes Murda Gang and one of the members' mothers have been indicted on drug trafficking charges.

Shelby County District Attorney General Amy Weirich said a gang member directed the drug operation while he was serving time.

Last October, a court injunction declared the DHMG/47 NHC a public nuisance and banned members from gathering in public within the defined safety zone.

The indictments said four members of the gang were engaged in a conspiracy to possess and sell more than 13 pounds of marijuana within 1000 feet of J.W. Williams Elementary School.

Steve Nelson, 32, is a gang leader. Investigators said Nelson planned and directed the narcotics trafficking operation while behind bars at 201 Poplar. He was arrested twice in the DHMG/47 NHC safety zone for violation of the public nuisance and gang injunction.

David Freeman, 20, an admitted member of the gang and James Hall, another suspected gang leader, were also named in the indictment.

All men are in custody on bonds of $100,000 each.

Anthony Jackson, 28, is thought to be one of DHMG/47 NHC's top members; he is charged with drug trafficking as well.

Also named in the indictment is Freeman's mother, Tonasha Liggins, 36, who investigators said received and then sold three pounds of marijuana.

She is not believed to be a member of the gang. Liggins is free on $55,000 bond.
