Minneapolis, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) --- The U.S. Marshals Service needs your help in finding several Native Mob gang members who remain at large.

Wakinyan Wakan McArthur of Bemidji, Christopher Lee Wuori of Cass Lake, and Eric Lee Bower of White Earth are all wanted on federal arrest warrants for racketeering related offenses.

The men are being sought after an indictment was filed in U.S. District Court last week.

A massive gang "take down" in Minnesota resulted in federal charges against two dozen members of the so–called Native "Mob Gang."

Nearly 150 law enforcement agencies including tribal law enforcement officers were involved in the round up.

Arrests were made last week on the White Earth, Mille Lacs, and Leech Lake reservations as well as in the Twin Cities.

The suspects are accused of conspiracy to participate in racketeering activity and other crimes.

New members, including juveniles, are reportedly recruited from communities with large, young, male, Native American populations.

Anyone with information is asked to call the U.S. Marshals Service tip line at: 651-848-1444.
