The last of six Alaska men indicted together in late March on federal murder and kidnapping charges – and allegedly connected to a white supremacist prison gang – has been arrested in Georgia.

Court records show 37-year-old Glen “Glen Dog” Baldwin was arrested Monday. Federal prosecutors announced charges in late March against Baldwin and five co-defendants, including a man legally named Filthy Fuhrer – formerly Timothy Lobdell – whom prosecutors say is a boss of the prison-based gang known as the 1488s.

Two others have already pleaded guilty to charges for the same murder, of a man named Michael Staton in 2017, and are still awaiting sentencing.

The court documents filed since the murder indictments include more details of the gang, the kidnapping plot and a connection between the 1488s and the Hells Angels.

A prosecution filing in support of detaining Craig King – a defendant in the case – describes him as a Hells Angels associate and includes photos of King’s tattoos that are said to show that affiliation. The filing says King had offered 1488 members outside of prison money and drugs to bring Staton to him, because, among other things, Staton had stolen King’s Hells Angels motorcycle jacket.

The court documents say Fuhrer – while incarcerated – personally approved of the plan by 1488 members to kidnap Staton, a 1488 member, to beat him and “forcibly remove” a tattoo featuring Nazi insignia that showed his membership in the gang. According to prosecutors and documents they have filed in court, Baldwin and the other co-defendants carried out that plan and they ultimately killed Staton.
