Utah White Supremacist gangs members busted on meth and drugs charges

Nearly two dozen suspects tied to white supremacist gangs in Utah were arrested for allegedly peddling methamphetamine and other drugs in the state, federal prosecutors announced Friday.

The group — 21 documented gang members and their associates — are accused of dealing throughout Salt Lake City and the nearby city of Ogden, Utah’s US Attorney’s office said in a release.

The gang members arrested were connected to either the Soldiers of Aryan Culture, Silent Aryan Warriors or Noble Elect Thugs, prosecutors said.

Prosecutors said many of those arrested have for years been engaging in criminal activity across Utah.

Federal and local authorities started investigating the alleged syndicate in June 2019.
