In a recent incident, Terrence Anthony, a 43-year-old man with previous state convictions for his ties to the OGK gang and a federal criminal conviction, was indicted in connection with a daring poker game heist in Albany. Anthony is accused of crimes like first-degree theft and felony violence in a seven-count indictment that was brought against him by the Albany County Court.
On July 15, 2022, early in the morning, Anthony and a number of other people wearing masks forced their way inside the AC Milan poker club on Central Avenue. A high-stakes Texas Hold’em game was the target of the thieves, who tied up the players, assaulted them severely, and stole a sizable sum of money.

Anthony, who goes by the aliases “T-Black” or “Black,” has a criminal record that includes a 20-year prison sentence for his participation in a South End robbery attempt. He also has a murder prosecution pending against him in connection with the passing of Shanita Thomas at a party on Central Avenue in January 2021.
Following the indictment, Supreme Court Justice Roger McDonough condemned Anthony to prison since he was a repeat offender. Daniel Smalls, Anthony’s defense attorney, announced his intention to appeal the decision. Smalls also disclosed plans to have Anthony’s poker case tried in an effort to refute the accusations made against him.
Terrence Anthony and three other people have been detained in connection with the murder of Shanita Thomas. The other people accused in connection with the event were 32- to 36-year-olds Marcel Perry, Vramir Alaka, and Raa’jiem Coleman. These cases are subject to continuing legal actions, and it is unclear how they will turn out.
Terrence Anthony was charged with a crime and accused of taking part in the poker game robbery, which shone light on the OGK gang’s illegal operations and the effects of their deeds on the neighborhood. The victims’ quest for justice and the efforts of the authorities tasked with maintaining public safety continue as the legal process develops.
