LANCASTER — State Attorney General Alan Wilson was in the Tri-County area today announcing a major milestone in a multi-jurisdictional effort to crack down on gang activity in Lancaster County.

Lancaster County Sheriff Barry Faile said a total of 15 suspected gang members now face a total of 53 felony indictments after nearly two years of investigation

State Attorney General Alan Wilson said the investigations show that the suspects are not the Hollywood version of gangs — they’ve caused real harm to real people. And it’s spreading across the state.

Faile said all 15 of the suspected gang members identify themselves as ‘Gangsta Disciples’ and are associated with the ‘Folk Nation’ gang.
