Just Wednesday night, the U.S. Department of Justice indicted all 31 members on a slew of charges.
Dozens of officers from local, state, and federal agencies swept through Holland as part of an ongoing investigation that reached other states.
In all, 29 were arrested, and 2 more suspects are at large.
Court documents show Desidario Amaro took a plea deal, agreeing to testify against the other suspected gang members in exchange for pleading guilty to a felony conspiracy charge.
Thursday night, the Holland Department of Public Safety is asking for your help in finding the last two suspects, Jose Hernandez and Uvaldo Ruiz.
If you know where the two men may be, you are asked to call Holland Police or Silent Observer.
