The Hamilton County Grand Jury indicted 54 gang members yesterday, marking the first time a street gang in the county has been prosecuted as a criminal enterprise under the state’s Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organization Act, the Times Free Press reports. Almost half of the defendants were already behind bars, while the rest were arrested Wednesday morning. The charges stem from a coordinated effort between the Chattanooga police chief and District Attorney General Neal Pinkston to utilize the cold case unit to review a series of unsolved murders.
