FBI makes early morning arrests in massive gang crackdown in Charlotte | Charlotte Observer: North Carolina’s largest ever crackdown on street gangs led to arrests in Charlotte and four states Thursday, with dozens of alleged members of United Blood Nation charged with a vast conspiracy of murders, assaults and other violent crimes.
In all, 83 people, all believed to be part of a UBN wing known as “Nine Trey Gangsters” wing, were named in the federal indictments, including nearly 30 who were already jailed for other crimes. Ten suspects remained on the run Thursday afternoon. Five were being hunted in Charlotte. One was as far away as Miami, the FBI said.
