Police: United Aryan Brotherhood Member Arrested in Cleveland County
Deputies say a member of a white supremacy gang was captured in Cleveland County and experts say the gang he's said to be in is one of the most dangerous.
Cleveland County Deputies arrested Ace Hailey, who was wanted in Oklahoma City for several crimes. Law enforcement officials say Hailey is a member of a group called the United Aryan Brotherhood.
"It was reported that he was a member of the Aryan Brotherhood," said Meghan McCormick, Public Information Officer for the Cleveland County Sheriff's Office.
Police started to follow Hailey's trail after they say he and another man were accused of assaulting and robbing a man in Oklahoma City on February 7th.
According to the arrest affidavit, the victim told police "Ace put his hands around his neck and choked him." He said the men also, "...took a knife from him and threatened to gut him."
Last week Oklahoma City Police told deputies Hailey was possibly in the area of 140th Street and Maguire Road and Cleveland County Sheriff's Deputies made the arrest.
"White supremacist gangs are really prevalent around the country," said Mark Potok, Senior Fellow of the Southern Poverty Law Center.
Oklahoma City Police say Hailey is a member of the United Aryan Brotherhood.
"The Aryan Brotherhood is the largest and by far the scariest prison-based white supremacist gang in this country," said Potok.
The Southern Poverty Law Center says the United Aryan Brotherhood is a sub-group of the gang. It says 13 hate groups have ties to Oklahoma.
"They include a number of kind of neo-Natzi groups, but they also include quite a number of black supremacists groups," said Potok.
But the Southern Poverty Law Center says Oklahoma's hate group count of 13 does not rank high on its list.
"But on the other hand, Kansas just to the north has a mere three hate groups," said Potok. "So that's kind of the range. Somewhere between zero and 30, 40 groups. So as I say, Oklahoma is more or less in the middle."
Ace Hailey is currently in the Oklahoma County Jail. His bond is set at $150,000.
