LOS ANGELES — Authorities say they have arrested several suspected members of an Armenian gang believed to have worked with inmates to orchestrate a riot at a Los Angeles County jail.
Sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore told The Associated Press that about a half-dozen suspected members of the Armenian Power gang were arrested Wednesday.
He says the gang is increasingly teaming up with the Mexican Mafia, a prison-based Latino gang that also exerts control on gang activity on the streets.
The Aug. 22 riot at a Castaic facility north of Los Angeles resulted in $250,000 in damage, and several inmates were injured.
