EL PASO, TX
Some of the alleged gang members were already in custody on
other charges; the others were arrested in El Paso this week. All
have been indicted on charges that they conspired to sell more than
500 grams of cocaine. Two people were also indicted on a charge of
possession with intent to distribute the drug ecstasy.
FBI Special Agent in Charge David Cuthbertson said the arrests
make a "significant" dent in the Bloods' operations in El Paso.
All 13 people arrested are being held in various local, state
and federal jails, including the El Paso County Jail. It is unclear
if any of them have lawyers.
