Idaho's new U.S. Attorney Bart Davis says he believes a new offshoot of the street and prison gang Surenos is close to being eradicated after a series of indictments in state and federal court.

During a press conference Thursday, Davis said five people believed to be members or associates of the Sureno Mob Trece gang were indicted in Idaho's U.S. District Court on drug and firearms charges on Wednesday. Another 15 people were indicted in Idaho's 3rd Judicial District the same day, most charged with conspiracy to recruit a gang member.
