Following a year-long LAPD investigation, roughly two dozen alleged members of MS13 street gang were arrested on Friday morning for their part in an aggressive extortion racket aimed at food trucks. A grand jury indictment is set to be unsealed today in Downtown, revealing the exact details of a wide-ranging plot to shakedown food truck controllers in the Southland, said to be aimed at “those who serve blue collar workers at construction sites.” [LAT]
