Twenty five members of the Aryan Brotherhood (AB) were arrested in Texas
on suspicion of participating in a methamphetamine distribution operation.
Twenty four of those arrested were charged with conspiracy to distribute
meth. Only one of those arrested was charged with possession of methamphetamine
with intent to distribute.
Operation La Flama Blanca Targets Meth Distribution
It is said that since November 2013, those arrested conspired to distribute
methamphetamines as part of a larger distribution operation. Operation
La Flama Blanca consisted of authorities meeting with members in order
to buy the drug multiple times to build a case. Police have obtained nine
pounds of methamphetamines, $9,000 in funds, and fifteen firearms in connection
with the investigation.
The investigation targeted the Aryan Brotherhood of Texas and also analyzed
how members of the gang in prison affected the operations that occurred
on the outside. The operation was intended to shut down the supply of
methamphetamine specifically trafficked by the Aryan Brotherhood.
Depending on the amount of the drugs distributed, each of those indicted
faces between five years and life in prison. Distribution of methamphetamine
carries serious consequences in Texas. If you or a loved one are facing
distribution charges, contact our drug defense attorneys as soon as possible.
