BALTIMORE (WJZ)– MS-13 is known for it’s ruthlessness and federal prosecutors have indicted more than 40 members in recent months.
Court documents provide more insight into how the gang works as Anne Arundel County announced eight more arrests.
Some say once you’re in it’s hard to ever get out alive, and gang members are very young. Those recently indicted range in age from 18 to 22. Some of them trafficked guns and drugs that went straight to Central America.
As federal authorities have cracked down on the estimated 1,000 MS-13 gang members in Maryland, court documents WJZ obtained revealed new information about operations.
