Two Warm Springs tribal members have been arrested in Oregon.
LAPWAI, ID - Two of the six people wanted for the shooting of a Lapwai woman, are now being extradited back to Nez Perce County.

According to Nez Perce Tribal Police Chief, Dave Rogers, 29-year-old Heather Ellen Picard and 30-year-old Matthew Arthur were arrested Monday night by Warm Springs Tribal Police in Oregon.

Both are active members of the Warm Springs Tribe and believed to have gang affiliations in that community. Gangs are a problem Chief Rogers said he won't stand for in the town of Lapwai.

"We've been fortunate that we don't have any serious gang activity here," said Rogers. "But with meth making a pretty strong in-roads into the community, this gang activity begins to follow that path. And our Tribal Police is gonna make every effort we can to prevent that from happening."

Both Picard and Arthur are facing charges of aggravated battery and aggravated trespassing. Chief Rogers said he hopes to have the other four arrested by the end of this week.
