LOS ANGELES—FBI agents and sheriff’s deputies have arrested 14 members of a South Los Angeles street gang that controls an area investigators say is among the most violent in the city. FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller says nine alleged members of the Athens Park Bloods were indicted on federal charges Tuesday morning. Eight were indicted on state charges. Investigators say the APBs and their 127th Street clique is responsible for murders, assaults, robberies, cocaine trafficking and firearms violations. Eimiller says the pre-dawn raids targeted the senior members who call the shots and initiate fights with rival Crips. Prosecutors say maximum penalties range from ten years to life in prison.
