Coming on the heels of nine arrests and indictments on federal charges of drug distribution and racketeering, Caddo Parish Sheriff Steve Prator tells 101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert j Wright and Erin McCarty that Shreveport has a problem with gangs.

Prator tells KEEL listeners that local gangs, including The Block Boyz and the Get Money Boyz, are involved in "big stuff", including murder, selling drugs, car theft and drive by shootings. The Sheriff also says that this is something that law enforcement has to "get on quickly", and that these arrests will "make a dent."
