The Dougherty Grand Jury hands up new indictments against suspected Gang Members targeted in a major crackdown over the summer, but the cases against others are dropped.

Several charges were added to racketeering charges for 32 men prosecutors say are Crips gang members.

The Grand Jury dropped 23 gang members from the indictment, as prosecutors streamline the case.

Most of those men are already in prison serving sentences of 15 years or more.

Dougherty D.A. Greg Edwards said "So they are pretty much over. So we have stream lined it so we can address those ones that are not already under sentence. We've also identified other activities."

There are 116 counts against the 32 Crips gang members in the latest indictment, including gang and racketeering charges against all of them.
