The charges include conspiracy to participate in racketeering activity involving the Aryan Brotherhood of Texas, violent crimes in aid of racketeering activity, and conspiracy to possess with the intent to distribute methamphetamine. All fourteen defendants are charged with conspiracy to possess with the intent to distribute methamphetamine between July 2012 to November 2017.
The indictment charges Ross, Frost, Craig, Pennington, Campbell and Voiles with conspiracy to participate in racketeering activity involving ABT activities between 1995 and November 2017. The indictment alleges they were members and associates of the ABT, a criminal organization whose members and associates engaged in the illegal trafficking of controlled substances, extortion, murder, attempted murder, assault with a dangerous weapon and other acts of violence and intimidation. Ross, Frost, and Craig are also charged with violent crimes in aid of racketeering activity in September 2015.
They allegedly operated throughout Texas, including the Corpus Christi Division of the Southern District of Texas and elsewhere. In addition, one of the purposes of the gang was allegedly to keep victims in fear of the enterprise and in fear of its leaders, members and associates through threats of violence and actual violence.
