Two Indiana men are headed to prison for their roles in a motorcycle gang.

Kent Whitinger of Indianapolis was sentenced to more than seven years behind bars. Steve Reynolds of Fort Wayne will serve nearly six years.

The men were part of the Outlaws Motorcycle Club. They're two of more than 40 gang members accused of racketeering, extortion, drugs, witness tampering and running an illegal gambling operation.

Federal prosecutors say the arrests were aimed at dismantling a criminal organization where violence is part of doing business.
