BOISE -- More than a dozen affiliates of two local gangs have been indicted on charges of distributing methamphetamine and illegally possessing firearms, the U.S. Attorney's Office for the District of Idaho announced Thursday.
All 13 people charged are members or associates of the Aryan Knights and Severely Violent Criminals gangs.
Those arrested are listed below:
-Tyler James Campbell, 34, of Boise
-Jesse Everett Ford, 43, of Kuna
-Brian Cade Humphreys, 45, of Meridian
-Jeremy Caine Lyons, 40, of Meridian
-Jason Schepers, 33, of Caldwell
-Kristen Decker (aka Kristen Walz,) 39 of Boise
-Jennifer Lee Sayer, 34, of Boise
-Kimberly Ann Hale, 39, of Meridian
-John Alan Redfern, 48, of Boise
-Frank Lee Gorrell, 40, of Boise
-Angela Marie Sheldon (aka Angela Marie Junkert,) 43, of Boise
-Keith Anthony Murphy, 28, of Boise
-Cameron James Ball, 31, of Boise
The indictments were handed down July 10, but not officially announced until Thursday. Of those arrested, eleven are facing drug charges, with 13 total counts of distribution of methamphetamine and three counts of conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine. Two people were indicted for unlawful possession of a firearm.
Redfern is the only suspect who remains at large; the other 12 are all in custody, authorities say.
U.S. Attorney Bart Davis said the indictments dealt a major blow to the Aryan Knights and Severely Violent Criminals.
"The Aryan Knights and Severely Violent Criminals were powerful prison and street gangs operating throughout Idaho," he said. "I am confident with these arrests our streets, our communities and our state are safer. I am also confident these gangs' street operations are substantially weakened."
Davis credited the indictments to the Treasure Valley Metro Violent Crime Task Force, a "patchwork of badges" involving agencies on the local, state and federal level.
"Their collective efforts really do benefit law enforcement," he said "These efforts have significantly disrupted and curtailed gang activity in the Treasure Valley," he said.
