Suspected Gang Members Arraigned in Court

Eight alleged members of the so-called East Side Locos gang were arraigned in federal court Tuesday morning.

The accused members were arrested in Northeast Tyler last week on racketeering and other charges. Four of them pled "not guilty" and were detained until trial.

As of late Tuesday afternoon, the court was trying to decide whether three others would be detained or set free before their trial. Five others have yet to appear in court.

Tyler Police say one of the gangs suspected members is still on the loose. They continue to ask for your help in finding Martin "Little Marc" Rodriguez. If you know where Rodriguez is, call crime stoppers or Tyler Police.
