5. Kick

The suspects are accused of selling methamphetamine, heroin, painkillers, marijuana and other drugs in the Salt Lake City and Ogden areas.

The investigation, led by local and federal authorities, resulted in a slew of felony charges against the group, including distribution of methamphetamine and possession of a firearm by a felon. Nine of the suspects could face up to life in prison if convicted.

Investigators also recovered 15 firearms and 1.65 pounds of meth during the probe.

Officials said many of the defendants have been involved in criminal conduct in Utah communities for many years. One of the gangs, Soldiers of Aryan Culture, was born in a Utah state prison in the 1990s and has been expanding ever since, Huber told reporters.

The FBI recently warned lawmakers that white supremacist groups are among the top threats to U.S. national security.

“Within that racially-motivated violent extremism bucket, people ascribing to some kind of white supremacist-type ideology is certainly the biggest chunk of that,” FBI Director Christopher Wray told the House of Representatives during a hearing last month.

Utah as well as Idaho are prefect breeding Grounds for Hate Groups. The Culture of the State is Conducive for these groups to recruit members.

The FBI knows who they are, they need to be off the streets and in the jails.

15. Salt Lake Tribune coverage here....

Members of Utah white supremacy gangs face federal drug, firearm charges
By Becky Jacobs
· Published: 22 hours ago

Read it here: https://www.sltrib.com/news/2020/10/16/members-utah-white/

Snips....

“SAC and SAW are highly volatile, dangerous criminal enterprises,” Mike Schoenfeld, director of the Salt Lake Area Gang Project, said at a news conference Friday outside the Salt Lake County Sheriff’s Office in South Salt Lake. "These gangs have their roots right here in the Utah prison system. It’s not something to be proud of. But they also have very strong ties nationwide to other violent white supremacy groups.”

The 15 indictments unsealed Friday include charges for distributing heroin and methamphetamine, possessing a firearm while selling drugs and having a gun as a felon.

“These targets were violent, they’re criminals, and they’re the worst in our communities,” said Matt Harris, U.S. Marshal for the District of Utah. Harris added, “We do have our problems ... and we’ve got a lot of crime here in Utah,” but there are agencies in the state dedicated to working together to address those issues.

“These partnerships and these types of investigations make a difference in all of our neighborhoods. They take people off the streets that are making our neighborhoods unsafe and unstable," said Eric Young, Ogden deputy police chief.

Keep up the good housekeeping, feds and local law enforcement........

22. Another Shot across White Supremecy's bow.

Expect more as the real FBI and real law enforcement continues to try and discourage these hate groups from causing trouble in November.

Real Federal criminal charges are a deterrent, no doubt about it. We are still a Country of Law and Order, even if Our leadership is a bunch of criminals.
