Steven C. Touch, the alleged leader of a street gang in Massachusetts was found in the drawer of a bed frame and has been arrested for the allegations against him. Touch had been on the Massachusetts State Police’s Most Wanted list since 2012 after allegedly being involved in a violent incident.
On July 12, 2012, Quintin Koehler, 22, was killed by a gunshot wound to the head after he and his brother, Ryan Koehler, confronted invaders in their home. The invaders are thought to be led by touch, the supposed leader of the Young Bloods gang. The home invasion occurred in Billerica in order to steal thousands of dollars in cash and also marijuana.
Touch had been charged with possession of firearm without a license, possession of a large capacity firearm, carrying a loaded firearm, possession of a large capacity feeding device, and defacing a serial number on a firearm.
After failing to appear in court on these charges, an arrest warrant was issued against Touch on January 10, 2017. A second warrant was issued against touch on May 22, 2017 in the U.S. District Court in Boston.
After finding him in the bedside drawer, Touch was arraigned for home invasion, murder, attempted armed robbery and conspiracy charges.
The fate of Touch is unknown pending his trial, but after the sentencing, the charges will be a part of his criminal record.
