SAN FRANCISCO — A woman who allegedly is a point person for the Aryan Brotherhood and implicated in several murders and other criminal activity has been captured in the Bay Area, authorities told KTVU on Wednesday.

Marty Foakes, 52, was arrested without incident after her whereabouts were uncovered during a drug investigation.

Foakes was just one of dozens of suspects targeted in a nationwide six-year investigation of the Aryan Brotherhood and its associates that culiminated in arrests warrants being issued in October 2002 for offenses ranging from murder to racketeering. In total, the suspects were charged with 16 murders and 12 attempted murders.

For her alleged role, Foakes faces racketeering and murder charges.

“She has been identified as what’s called the point person for the gang,” said Marti McKee, an ATF spokeswoman, at the time the warrants were handed down in 2002.

“That is someone on the outside (of prison) and who is able to communicate with other members to carry out the criminal activities of the gang.”

The Aryan Brotherhood was founded in 1964 by white prison inmates and has a reputation for committing acts of violence both behind bars and outside jail.

The indictments accused members of the gang of committing murder to control drug trafficking, gambling and extortion in federal and state prisons.
