LAS VEGAS (AP) - Police and federal officials say at least 28 people were arrested in Nevada and six other states on federal and state charges after a four-year undercover investigation launched as a probe of outlaw motorcycle gangs dealing drugs and weapons in and around Las Vegas.
The U.S. attorney for Nevada and the district attorney in Las Vegas joined police and federal agents Thursday announcing that 32 people were indicted in the case in federal and state courts.
Officials say most of those arrested are Vagos, Bandidos and Chosen Few motorcycle gang officers.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/19ziY80 ) the investigation began following clashes between Hells Angels and Mongols including a deadly 2002 casino shootout during a motorcycle rally in Laughlin and a 2008 brawl at a Las Vegas wedding chapel.
