White Supremacist Gangs
Evidence is on display during a news conference, Monday, Dec. 9, 2013 in Portland, Ore. A sweeping crackdown on white supremacist gangs in eastern Multnomah County included more than 40 indictments for violent crimes and drug manufacturing. The six-month operation announced Monday morning included a weekend of arrests in which investigators say they captured more than 20 people affiliated with six different gangs near Portland. The operation focused on drugs and guns, but Multnomah County Sheriff's Office spokesman Steve Alexander says police also found evidence of attempted kidnapping of witnesses.
