Local, state and federal law-enforcement agencies in Las Vegas ended a four-year investigation of Southern Nevada motorcycle gangs with the arrest of 25 gang members. A total of 32 people are facing state and federal drug and weapons charges, including possession and sale of methamphetamines, cocaine and prescription drugs. Three of the suspected gang members were being held in Hawaii pending extradition to Nevada to face similar charges.
In addition to the drug- and weapons-related charges, some of those arrested have also been charged with fraud and false imprisonment. Attorneys know that those charged in connection with the Las Vegas investigation could be facing lengthy prison sentences if they are convicted.
