Two dozen people, including a former prison guard and the wife of the alleged ringleader, were arrested in raids against the Aryan Family, a white racist prison gang.

A grand jury has indicted the suspects in a drug trafficking case, the Drug Enforcement Administration said in a news release this week.

Among those captured was suspected ringleader Jesse James Bailey, whom authorities said was an influential member of the Aryan family who sold vast quantities of fentanyl, methamphetamine and other drugs in Washington, Idaho and Alaska, authorities said. Bailey’s wife, Candice Bailey, was also arrested, officials said. She is a former Washington state correctional officer who resigned in 2014 while she was under investigation, a spokesman told Law&Crime in an email.
