Treasure Valley Home to Major Gang Crackdown
Gang crime in the Treasure Valley? Yeah...I had the same reaction today when I saw several major crime units on a press conference saying that a large group of individuals were removed from our streets today.
Hats off to our police here in the Treasure Valley who keep us safe--but apparently behind the scenes of the city, there has been a several month long investigation into a group of gang members from the Aryan Knights and the Severely Violent Criminals.
In total, thirteen suspects were arrested in gun and drug related crimes--some including the distribution of methamphetamine--something we don't want on our streets in the Treasure Valley.
Given that the FBI and other federal agencies were involved in the arrest operation, these individuals could be facing federal charges that are at minimum twenty years behind bars and the possibility of owing over $1 million in fines.
