Government Agencies Investigating Aryan Brotherhood of Texas
(KCEN) -- A multi-year investigation by several government agencies has netted several men believed to be members of the Aryan Brotherhood of Texas in a racketeering scheme.
Authorities say the men are indicted on murder robbery and arson charges.
"Four ABT generals are named in today's indictment. Thirteen other alleged ABT leaders: the ranks of major, captain, or lieutenant are also being charged today along with numerous other gang members, and associates. Brutal beatings, firebombing, drug trafficking, and murder are all part of ABT's alleged standard operating procedures."
Court documents show that the Aryan Brotherhood of Texas was created in the 1980's inside Texas prisons.
