Two Native Mob members captured, one remains at large

Two of three Native Mob members at large were apprehended Wednesday night without incident in northeast Minneapolis.

A third suspect, Eric Lee Bower, remains out of custody and is considered armed and dangerous, the U.S. Attorney's office said Thursday.

Officials had issued wanted posters Tuesday for Wakinyan Wakan McArthur, 33, of Bemidji, Christopher Lee Wuori, 24, of Cass Lake and Bower, 23, of White Earth.

All three are accused of racketeering, weapons violations and drug trafficking.

McArthur and Wuori were taken into custody the following night. They will be making their initial appearances this afternoon, at 2 p.m., before Magistrate Judge Leung, in federal court in St. Paul.
