Operation Roman Empire deals blow to Mexican Mafia-aligned gang
- 18 people were arrested on federal charges relating to alleged criminal activity on behalf of the Harpys Dead-End gang, including at least one family member of the gang’s incarcerated leader Danny Roman.
- 29 defendants will face charges in total, though eight of those charged were already incarcerated in the state of California. Danny Roman’s sister Vianna and her husband Aaron Soto were both arrested on Thursday, and stand accused of passing orders to/from Danny during his incarceration. Police also say that they collected taxes for the jailed Harpys leader, and brought him the money during their visits. source
