Officials are investigating a group that is believed to be trafficking stolen property in the Valley.

The Department of Public Safety said the investigation involves stolen vehicles, trailers and motorcycles. The group involved in the investigation is associated with the Aryan Brotherhood and white supremacy groups.

DPS said search warrants were served at a home near Broadway Road and Stapley Drive and another home near McClintock Drive and Broadway Road on Wednesday morning. ABC15 video showed a large police presence and the SWAT team on scene.

Officials seized weapons and drugs from the house and one arrest was made.

DPS is also investigating that this group may have ties to the murder of Curtis Fish on May 9 in San Tan Valley.
