Drug investigation leads to 54 arrests

DALLAS (AP) _ An investigation by federal, state and local officials has led to drug charges against 54 people associated with white supremacist organizations.
 
According to a statement from the U.S. attorney's office in Dallas, the 54 have been charged with federal crimes arising from their participation in a drug distribution operation in North Texas from January 2013 through this month. Two of the 54 are still fugitives.
 
A previous phase of the investigation in 2014 led to the arrests of 37 members and associates of white supremacist groups on similar drug charges. All were convicted. One remains a fugitive.
 
The federal statement says the suspects are associated with such groups as the Aryan Brotherhood of Texas, the Aryan Circle, the White Knights and the Peckerwoods.
