14 Members of a San Pedro-Based Street Gang Who Trafficked Narcotics out of Bars and a Hotel May Have to Find a New Line of Work

Posted by Fay Arfa | Jun 27, 2019 | 0 Comments

As part of a joint federal-state law enforcement action targeting the Rancho San Pedro street gang, authorities unsealed two federal grand jury indictments that charge 14 members and associates of the gang with narcotics and firearms offenses. The federal government charged thirteen alleged San Pedro street gang members, supposedly controlled by the Mexican Mafia, with a narcotics trafficking conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine, heroin, cocaine and opioids.  The indictment also alleged the defendants used violence and firearms to maintain their drug trafficking territory. They sold the drugs out of a hotel and two bars on Pacific Avenue in San Pedro.  The gang allegedly collected “taxes” from drug transactions and funneled the money to three Mexican Mafia members currently serving time in state prisons for murder convictions.

Bottom line:  They may have to find a new way to make a living.
