(Salt Lake City, UT) — There’s a sharp increase of outlaw motorcycle gangs in the state. Utah County Sheriff’s Sergeant Lane Crister told state lawmakers yesterday there’s been a 300-percent increase of these gangs over the last five years. Crister said many gangs have ties to Mexican drug cartels and they’re coming to Utah “so they can run a variety of their criminal activities and make their money in the state.”
