Final Defendant Arrested In Native Mob Case

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Authorities say they have arrested the final defendant in their multi-count case against members of the Native Mob gang.

Twenty-three-year-old Eric Lee Bower of White Earth was arrested Thursday without incident in Minneapolis.

He is one of 24 suspected Native Mob members charged in January in a sweeping racketeering indictment that claims the defendants used violence and intimidation to keep the gang in power. Bower was the last defendant to remain at large and will likely make his initial court appearance Friday.

He was arrested by a multi-agency task force led by the U.S. Marshals Service.

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.
