Dozens of people linked to a white supremacist gang in Arkansas were charged Tuesday with a series of violent crimes.

Fifty-four members of New Aryan Empire, a white supremacist gang formed in prison in 1990, were indicted for attempted murder, kidnapping and maiming related to the group and its drug-trafficking operation, according to the Department of Justice.


Members of the gang allegedly engaged in witness intimidation and retaliation as well as the drug trafficking and assault, according to the indictment handed down Tuesday.

In one incident, a suspected informant allegedly had his face burned with a knife, officials said.

Another time, gang members allegedly attacked someone with bats, knives and guns.

“The violence and hatred alleged in this superseding indictment have no place in society,” U.S. Attorney Cody Hiland said in a statement.

“We are committed to helping our communities remain free from these types of crimes using every resource available, including the powerful RICO statutes when appropriate. The significant charges in this case represent the hard work of our state and federal law enforcement agencies, and this office’s commitment to removing violent, repeat offenders from the streets.”
