Federal prosecutors say alleged members of white supremacist prison gangs in Mississippi and Oklahoma have been arrested. They face racketeering charges tied to violent crimes and drug distribution.
The Justice Department said Thursday 13 of the 14 people indicted in this state are in custody. Prosecutors say those in the 10 count indictment, which was handed down October 23 and unsealed Thursday are believed to be members of Aryan Brotherhood Mississippi, a whites only gang that uses Nazi symbols and have crime operations inside and outside prisons.
The Mississippi indictment says the gangs have carried out killings, assaults and kidnappings.
