SALINA, Kan. (AP) — California authorities have arrested a 31-year-old Kansas resident who's accused of helping coordinate gang activities in Los Angeles.
Los Angeles County Sheriff's Deputy Francis Hardiman was in Salina on Wednesday to arrest the woman. Hardiman told The Salina Journal (http://bit.ly/mhYnH9 ) the woman's accused of using cellphones and computers from her Salina home to help coordinate criminal activity of the Surenos street gang in Los Angeles and Mexican Mafia members in the Los Angeles County jail.
The Los Angeles County prosecutor's office said Thursday formal charges hadn't been filed.
Hardiman said it's not uncommon for a gang member in her position to be located far from the prison where gang members are housed.
Salina police say she's being held in the Saline County jail pending extradition, which could take two weeks.
