Another Member of White Supremacy Group Arrested

New developments in NewsChannel 11's ongoing investigation into the white supremacy group "Aryan Nation." Another member is behind bars and once again, we learn both drugs and weapons were involved in Wednesday's arrest.

NewsChannel 11 first told you about the increase of that gang's activity on the South Plains last week. Wednesday night 26-year-old James Bently will be spending his 27th birthday in the Lubbock county jail. Bently was arrested in his home at 4419 31st Street. Police found methamphetamine, guns, drug scales and Nazi flags. Bently has been charged with aggravated kidnapping, possession with intent to deliver, and three counts of weapon charges. Because Bently is a convicted felon, and the amount of drugs, he could face federal charges.

The aggravated kidnapping charges come from a crime that happened on February 13th at 2 a.m. A man was allegedly kidnapped, beaten and then shot in the leg. The victim then drug himself inside Whataburger where they called police. We learned last week that the victim might have owed money to the Aryan Nation, and when he didn't pay, they came after him. Three people were seen leaving the crime scene, and one woman has been arrested on unrelated charges.

Again, two people have been arrested, but police are still looking for another man. If you have any information, you are asked to call Crime Line at (806) 741-1000.
