MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Authorities say the manhunt is over for two Native Mob members, but one man is still at large.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office says Thursday that 33-year-old Wakinyan Wakan McArthur of Bemidji and 24-year-old Christopher Lee Wuori of Cass Lake were arrested Wednesday in Minneapolis.

They are among 24 suspected Native Mob members charged last week in a sweeping racketeering indictment that claims the defendants used violence and intimidation to keep the gang in power.

McArthur is considered to be a longtime Native Mob leader.

Gang experts say the Native Mob is violent, and has influence from the Twin Cities to reservations throughout Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin.

Twenty-three-year-old Eric Lee Bower of White Earth is still at large.
