Twenty more people have been arrested in an investigation that charges a Latino street gang with waging a racist campaign to eliminate black people from a Southern California city.
A task force arrested the suspects on Wednesday.
The arrests stem from a sting against the Varrio Hawaiian Gardens gang, which primarily operates in Hawaiian Gardens in southeastern Los Angeles County. An indictment unsealed in May details attempted murder, kidnapping, drug and other charges related to the gang’s attacks.
Since May, more than 300 gang members and associates have been arrested and charged in state and federal court.
