LOS ANGELES (CBS) — The LAPD and federal officials have arrested several members of what they call a notorious and violent motorcycle gang in South LA.

“Our investigation culminated after a number of shootings and a homicide that we tied to that motorcycle club,” LAPD Commander Bob Green said.

KNX 1070’s Ed Mertz reports.

Members of the Chosen Few motorcycle club were arrested after a year long investigation. ATF officials said the suspects came on the radar after a number of violent shootings and drug cases.

“They have no one to blame except for themselves because of all the mayhem they started causing in their community,” Agent John Torres said.

Police also arrested a DMV employee in Culver City, according to DMV Investigator Lillia Duarte.

“He had allegedly been manipulating data and provided fictitious licenses in support of his associations and for his personal gain,” Duarte said.
