A woman linked to a New Orleans street gang has turned herself in to authorities after her indictment on racketeering and a host of other charges.

"Ja'on Jones from the 110ers gang just turned herself in to lock up with her attorney," reads a brief alert from NOPD received Friday evening.

18-year-old Jones, also known as "Sticks," faces charges including racketeering and accessory after the fact to second degree murder for her alleged role in several homicides, armed robberies, other crimes of violence and the narcotics trade.  Those crimes are linked to the 110er's, a street gang that investigators say was active in recent years in New Orleans' 10th and 11th Wards.

Jones is one of 15 people named in a sweeping indictment Thursday by the Orleans District Attorney's Office, following an investigation by the Multi-Agency Gang Unit.

13 of the suspects were in custody as of Thursday.  The last suspect, Joshua Pittman, remains at large.

If you can help police find Pittman or have any other information about the 110'ers, please call NOPD or Crimestoppers at 504-822-1111.
