MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The U.S. Marshals Service in Minnesota sought the public’s help Tuesday to track down three fugitive Native Mob gang members but cautioned they may be armed and dangerous.

The three men are among 24 suspected Native Mob members charged last week in a sweeping racketeering indictment. The indictment, one of the largest gang-related indictments in Minnesota, contains 47 counts and alleges the defendants used violence and intimidation to keep the gang in power.

Officials issued wanted posters Tuesday for Wakinyan Wakan McArthur, 33, of Bemidji, Christopher Lee Wuori, 24, of Cass Lake and Eric Lee Bower, 23, of White Earth.

All three are accused of racketeering, weapons violations and drug trafficking.

McArthur, a native of South Dakota, is described as 5 foot, 10 inches tall, 150 pounds, with brown eyes and black hair. On the wanted poster he is pictured wearing glasses and a tattoo is visible on the left side of his neck. He is considered to be a longtime Native Mob leader.

Bower is described as five foot, 10 inches, 200 pounds, with brown eyes and brown hair. Wuori is described as five foot seven, 162 pounds, with green eyes and brown hair. McArthur and Bower are described as American Indian and Wuori is described as white or white Hispanic.

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

Anyone with any information on the men’s whereabouts should call the U.S. Marshals Service tip line at (651) 848-1444.

      You stole this land and killed the rightful owners. The white man deserves a little of his own medicine.

      1. hunnybear18 says:

        So because of what happened gang members should be free to terrorize others? Miss out when they were teaching the traditional values did you? Because I was listening when they were being taught and no part of it said that two wrongs make a right. Or are you the usual who just uses his heritage as an excuse to be militant? Is it hard to type with such a big chip on your shoulder? Did your grandma teach you that all of your actions are someone else’s fault. Mine didn’t.

        1. AIM says:

          You are a stooge of the white man, drinking his whiskey and starving on his reservation. Stand up for your people, and do not listen to the white man’s lies.

    How about some pictures, eh? That might the public in the search..

  6. Julianne says:

    Wow, there seems to be a lot of tension in this posting. #1. Christopher M, that posting was totally juvenile, and #2. The response from the “Chief” was a little over the top. We all live in this beautiful state and need to get along like civilized residents. There are those who break the law from all races. Let’s not start name calling and pigeon-holing based solely on heritage and background.

    1. "Chief" says:

      You are correct, however, it was done to show people the “light” that this particular individual holds above his head that shows his ignorance and dumbfounded taste for humor. I simply reiterated his comment with a slightly altered, but more relevant, comment as well. Catchy … I know, but this behavior is uncalled for in a State with 13 Federally Recognized Sovereign Nations (tribes) even on my part. I should not adhere to this individuals lack of an education and his poor choice of words. I apologize for going over the top.

    OK, 1st the Mob, really how does this still go on?

    Then 5 foot 10, 150# who’s this guy intimidating?

    1. LOL! says:

      Hahaha, and has no tribal affiliation whatsoever! Guess they let anybody willing to let a party happen in their mouth join their cause!! Poor little tink tink ….

  8. steve says:

    If the marshalls want help from the public they should include a picture of who to look out for.

  9. The White Man says:
