    On June 28, a grand jury found Dominic Badaracco Sr., 77, of Sherman, guilty of one count of bribery. Now he has been sentenced.

    A federal grand jury has indicted members of a San Francisco Bay Area street gang on charges that they participated in a string of armed robberies and then bragged about the crimes on social media.

    The United States Attorney's Office for the Northern District of California said in a statement on Thursday that the grand jury had returned a 21-count superseding indictment against seven members of the Landry Crew, an Oakland gang that is affiliated with the larger Money Team gang.

    Starting in 2012, the gang members conducted a number of armed robberies of Rite Aids, Safeway and Walmart stores as well as home-invasion-style robberies, authorities said.
