Task Force Arrests 23 for Hemet Police Attacks

A task force arrested 23 people regarding recent attacks against the Hemet Police Department and city property in Hemet, California.  Police suspected a white supremacist group was to blame for recent attacks in the city.  The attacks included burning city vehicles and setting up several dangerous booby traps at police facilities.

A task force was set up with local, state and federal officials who executed searches at dozens of locations to seek out suspects in the crimes and to make arrests on unrelated charges including weapons and narcotics.

Apparently, law enforcement is still conducting an investigation regarding the attacks and is still interviewing potential witnesses and suspects.  An attorney for the Vagos Motorcycle Club said that his client’s were not arrested nor were they involved in any of the attacks.
