Ohio Goes After MS 13

The federal government says four more alleged members and associates of the MS-13 gang have been charged in Ohio. Prosecutors add a federal grand jury charged the four for extortion, money laundering and drug dealing. Federal authorities say one of the four has been deported, one is a fugitive and two Columbus suspects are in custody. The government also says additional charges have been filed against previously indicted defendants. The gang, based in Central America, has more than 10,000 members and associates operating in at least 40 states, including Ohio.
