Flint Crime Probe Nabs Gangsters
(2007-12-17)
(wgvu) - FLINT, Mich. (AP) - Police say 21 people have been arrested
following a yearlong investigation into a Flint-area criminal
organization called the Pierson Hood gang.
The Flint Journal reports the charges include murder, terrorism,
armed robbery, dogfighting and fraud.
Arrest warrants have been issued for 12 other people.
Several of the people charged in the warrants already have been
indicted on federal drug charges. They are in custody and are
expected to be charged later this week.
Other arraignments are expected Monday afternoon.
Authorities say some of the suspects are tied to seven
drug-related homicides over the past few years.
