The neighborhood is all apartment buildings in a quiet neighborhood. It is just east of Loara High School in Anaheim, and sits on the back side of Disneyland.

Published: Oct. 9, 2010

Anaheim residents have a party to celebrate an injunction against the Jeffrey Street gang.

ANAHEIM – The gang is called Jeffrey Street, but there no longer is a street by that name.

The neighborhood the gang claims, once known as Jeffrey-Lynne, is now called Hermosa Village.

On Saturday, neighborhood residents were treated to hot dogs and hamburgers to celebrate a recent court injunction against the gang. The party at Energy Field was hosted by the Anaheim Police Department and the Orange County District Attorney's Office.

Once one of Anaheim's most blighted, high-crime neighborhoods, Jeffrey-Lynne was transformed into Hermosa Village starting about 10 years ago as the city bought and renovated many of its two-story apartment buildings.

"It's way better than before," said Ariana Gutierrez, 15, a Loara High student who has lived in the neighborhood since she was 2. "It doesn't look so ugly."

Crime began to drop when the city did the renovations, Police Sgt. Juan Reveles said. Many of the gang members have moved out, he said. However, they still gravitate toward the neighborhood because it's where they feel safe, he said. Elsewhere, they're either in "no-man's land" or in an enemy gang's territory, he said.

After the renovations, Jeffrey Street was renamed Calle del Sol. When it was removed, the Jeffrey Street sign had a couple of bullet holes in it, Reveles said.

The injunction, served on 60 of the gang's most active members in July, gives the police an additional tool to use against the gang. It forbids two or more gang members to congregate inside a 1.59-square-mile "safety zone" bounded by Katella Avenue to the south, Nutwood Street to the west, Ball Road to the north and Disneyland Drive to the east.

Also forbidden are wearing gang clothing and throwing hand signs. Gang members subject to the injunction can be arrested and prosecuted for these activities, which would otherwise be legal. In the first two months of the injunction, there were nine such violations, but none in the third month, Reveles said.

It's the second gang injunction in Anaheim and the eighth in Orange County. Others are in Santa Ana, Orange, Garden Grove, San Clemente and San Juan Capistrano.

The ban on congregating keeps members from "posting up," or hanging out in public to attract members of rival gangs who might be looking for a fight, Reveles said. "Posting up" creates danger for gang members and non-members alike.

"What the lay person doesn't understand is that these people are willing to die for the neighborhood," he said.

Rogelio Franco, 35, used to live in Jeffrey-Lynne in the mid-1990s. He moved back a year ago to what is now Hermosa Village.

"There were a lot of gangs back in those years," he said. "Now it's different. It's like a new place."

Violent crime in the neighborhood is down 33 percent since the injunction was served, said Susan Eckermann, a deputy district attorney who prepared the injunction.

ANAKRIME KROOKS

V'SSK'R 13'LSB

OxC KROOKS BASED IN ANAHEIM
VARRIO SOUTH SIDE KROOKS WERE ORIGINALLY PART OF THE "SICK OF SOCIETY KINGS" TAGGING CREW FROM OxC WHICH WAS PART OF THE LARGER SSK CREW WHICH OPERATED IN BOTH L.A. & ORANGE COUNTIES.

SEVERAL BRANCHES OF SSK EXISTED IN DIFFERENT AREAS. WHEN THEY GOT TO MOBBIN AND TAG'BANGING SEVERAL DIFFERENT VERSIONS WERE DERIVED OUT OF THEIR SSK INITIALS..

SOME SICK KINGS
SUI'SIDAL KINGS
SOUTH SIDE KINGS
SOUTH SIDE KRIMINALS
SEVENTEEN STREET KROOKS
AND SOUTH SIDE KROOKS

THE ORIGINAL BIRTHGROUNDS WERE IN THE L.A. PICO UNION BONNIE BREA CALLE

SSK USED TO GO EVERYWHERE ON MISSIONS, AND MEMBERS OF THE KINGS KICKED IT IN ALL SOxCAL COUNTIES. EVENTUALLY, THE GREATER SSK KREW BROKE DOWN INTO SMALLER MORE LOCALIZED KREWS. AND THEN SOME TURNED INTO THEIR OWN CLIQUES-TURNED-VARRIO. THE ONES IN BONNIE BREA BECAME THE BONNIE BREA WINOS AND MALDITOS CLIQUES. THE SSK IN OxC TURNED SOUTH SIDE KROOKS LOS BAGOS CLIQUE AFTER THEY MERGED WITH THE CAMBRIDGE AVE (CAVE BROWN GANG) FROM ANAKRIME, AND CAMBRIDGE AVENUE BECAME SSK NEIGHBORHOOD!

SEVERAL OTHER CLIQUES HAVE SPRUNG OUT AND HAVE THEIR ROOTS WITH THE ORIGINAL SSK AND THEY EITHER HAVE SETTLED DOWN IN A PLACE TO BECOME THEIR OWN, OR HAVE INCORPORATED INTO OTHER VARRIOS FROM THE SOUTHERN UNITED RAZA CAMP.. SOME OF THEIR BEEFS FROM THEIR TAG'BANGER DAYS HAVE CARRIED OVER, AND SOME PRIOR ENEMIGAS KREWS HAVE ALSO TURNED VARRIO, LIKE THE EK., EVIL KINGS/EVIL KIDS WHO NOW GO BY EVIL KLAN. SO HAVING STARTED OUT AS A TAG KREW RIVALRY, THEY CONTINUED ON TO BE RIVALS ON SUR KALLES!

..

THE STORY OF THE ANAHEIM REAL DEAL "KROOKS"

ANAHEIM VARRIO KROOKS 13 CAVE LSB

SOUTH SIDE KROOKS CAMBRIDGE AVENUE LOS BAGOS

SSK WAS ORGINALLY THE SICK OF SOCIETY TAGGER CREW FROM L.A. COUNTY. BUT THEN SSK STARTED GETTING UP EVERYWHERE AND THEN SSK STARTED GETTING INTO THE SAME KIND OF TAGBANGERS PROBLEMS OF THE TIMES, AND THEN THEY REALLY TURNED IT UP AND STARTED MOBBING HARD. THEY HAD MAD PLEITO WITH ANOTHER TAGBANGER KREW OF THE TIMES KNOWN AS THE EVIL KINGS WHICH LATER BECAME THE EVIL KIDS IN OXC AND EVIL KLAN IN L.A.

THE ORIGINAL SOUTH SIDE KINGS HOOD WAS SET UP ON L.A’s. WEST SIDE ON BONNIE BREA WITH THE WINOES AND MALDITOS CLIKAS. ANOTHER SSK KLIK THAT SET UP AND ATTAINED NOTORIETY WAS THE SEVENTEEN STREET KRIMINALS.

IN ORANGE COUNTY THE SSK KICKED IT AT CAMBRIDGE AVENUE IN ANAKRIME TOGETHER WITH THOSE THAT WERE KNOWN BACK THEN AS THE CAVE BROWNS GANG, WHICH WAS MADE UP OF JOCKS AND KIDS THAN WENT TO ANAKRIME & KATELLA HIGH SCHOOLS. THAT WAS BACK IN 1987 WHEN CAVE STARTED OUT AT THE SAME TIME THAT OTHERS LIKE KROGGER, PAULINE, WATER STREET AND THE OPTIONAL BOYZ WERE HAPPENING. DURING THOSE TIMES THE AVLS, WSA & PENGUINS WOULD HANG OUT WITH THE CAVE GANG. SOME OFF-AND-ON BEEFS WOULD OCCUR, BUT THAT WAS JUST THE NATURAL ORDER OF THINGS ON THE KALLE. BUT THEN SERIOUS PEDOS STARTED HAPPENING, AND THEN PLEITO WITH UNDERHILL CAME NEXT. SOME SSK WERE FORCED TO MOVE OUT, AND THEN LATER ONE OF THEIR ORANGE KOUNTY FOUNDERS WAS KILLED IN A CAR ACCIDENT. THIS WEIGHED HEAVY ON THE YOUNG KROOKS, BUT THEN NEW KROOK HEADS ROSE UP AND THEY BEGAN TO GET HARDER AND GREW DEEPER. SSK AND CAVE DECIDED TO CLIQUE UP AND THIS IS WHEN SOUTH SIDE KROOKS CAMBRIDGE AVENUE LOS BAGOS WAS KREATED. KAMBRIDGE AVENUE REMAINED THE NEIGHBORHOOD AND SSK GREW INTO A WEB OF HOMIES AND THE LOS BAGOS KLIKA CAME TO DOMINATE THE SCENE IN THE CITY OF KRIME.

PUENTE 13



The City of La Puente is all colored in yellow (unincorp areas not included). The community of Valinda is outlined in green, seen on the northeast section of the map. Bassett is on the far north west side, and "La Hacienda Puente"(Happy Homes) is on the bottom side where you read Industry on the map.

La Puente was one of those many so-called hicks towns that where out there in the boonies; and the boonies seemed so far away from L.A. (20 miles) back in the 1930s and 40s., Back then the area was filled with muddy river beds, and rail road tracks criss-crossed the flat hills topography of the Puente Valley. Packed-dirt sidewalks were the norm in many of its neighborhood streets. It was a stereotypical Mexican place where you could fence in your property and raise chickens or goats, and hunt coons or roadrunners just a short distance from the roads and homes; the place was like country living.

After WWII, La Puente became a boom town. The place was prime marketing land for the realty companies which came in and divided up everything into "tracts" and laid it all out into "grids." .. So many families from L.A. and elsewhere moved to La Puente in the 1950's that for a time the place was called "kidsville," because there where just so many little folks on its streets; kids ruled; they owned the streets.

La Puente grew so much during the 1950's that it was incorporated as it's own City in the year 1956. La Puente for a time was the classical white urban city of the leave it to beaver kind of epoch. But just like it's twisted name of "LA" instead of "EL" Puente, it also had another story brewing under its topside look. White on the outside, Brown on the inside.

Thee History of the Bridgetown and of it's crazy "LA" instead of "EL" in its name goes back to to when the old Spanish explorers crossed over the hills from La Abra (La Habra), and upon coming down on the other side, they crossed over a bridge that they built over the San Jose (river) creek, back like in 1769; and according to folk legend the Spaniard explorer Portola named the region "Llana de La Puente" - meaning Plain of the Bridge., the "LA" instead of the "EL" is said to be because of the Portuguese that were with the Spanish, who use LA instead of EL., this same place later became a "Rancho," and when the Whites arrived, they took over the name; later their fields and farms attracted large crowds of gente; raza who came in droves during the 1920s and 30s, and by the 1950s, the time when the homes and freeway construction were taking place, simon, Chicanos made La Puente their home. And so first the Chucos who got it together as Old Town Puente Gents, and then later they went on to become Puente 13 Tinflanes.

TINFLANES, now there's a name for the books., so full of meaning!

P13 was founded in the early 1950’s in La Puente. At the time of its conception, it was known as the “Bridgetown Gentlemen,” or “Old Town Puente.” Later the gang became known simply as Puente 13.

Over the decades since, it has dramatically expanded its membership and territory into neighboring cities and communities, to include unincorporated county areas, and portions of Walnut, Industry, Hacienda Heights, and West Covina.

There are currently 14 subsets, or cliques of the Puente 13 gang.

New cliques were formed by members living in a particular geographical area, and were named accordingly (i.e. Happy Homes was founded by Puente 13 members residing in Hacienda Heights), and cliques such as Blackwood Street, Northam Street, Rama Street, and Dial Blvd. were founded by Puente 13 members residing on those respective street zones of Greater La Puente.

Currently its gang membership (active or inactive) is roughly between 600 to 1000 in numbership.

FEDERAL RACKETEERING INDICTMENT LEADS TO ARREST OF 8 MEMBERS, ASSOCIATES OF SAN GABRIEL VALLEY STREET GANG

LOS ANGELES – A joint federal-state law enforcement operation this morning led to the arrest of eight people linked to a San Gabriel Valley street gang who are charged in a federal racketeering and narcotics indictment that alleges the gang has engaged in violent crimes and methamphetamine trafficking that helped fund the Mexican Mafia.

Today’s arrests are the result of a 22-count indictment returned by a federal grand jury on June 2. The indictment names 17 defendants, 16 of whom are charged under the Racketeer Influenced Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act. In addition to the RICO charges, the indictment alleges violent crimes in aid of racketeering, conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine, firearms violations and other offenses.

The federal indictment that led to this morning’s takedown focuses on Puente-13, a street gang that was formed in the City of La Puente approximately 60 years ago. Puente-13 claims as its turf a large portion of La Puente, as well as unincorporated parts of the San Gabriel Valley and portions of nearby cities such as Hacienda Heights, Walnut and West Covina. The gang is comprised of approximately 600 members and includes at least 14 subsets or “cliques.” Puente-13 is aligned with the Mexican Mafia, as indicted by the “13" in the gang's name, which references the 13th letter in the alphabet – the letter M. The indictment states that the gang is currently controlled by Mexican Mafia member Rafael Munoz Gonzalez.

Members of Puente-13 are involved in the distribution of narcotics, particularly methamphetamine, according to the indictment, which also alleges that leaders of the gang extort drug dealers by collecting “taxes,” the payment of which allows drug dealers to operate in gang-controlled territory.

The RICO conspiracy count in the indictment alleges a series of specific overt acts, including the murder of a rival gang member who was punished for collecting taxes on behalf of Gonzalez without Gonzalez’s knowledge, several stabbings designed to deter victims from cooperating with law enforcement, and numerous instances in which gang members possessed firearms and narcotics for sale.

“Violent drug gangs continue to wreak havoc within our communities,” said Drug Enforcement Administration Special Agent in Charge Timothy J. Landrum. “Today’s arrests send the message that law enforcement will continue to work together to take back our neighborhoods and get violent drug traffickers and gangs off our streets.”

Four of the defendants in the federal racketeering case are eligible for the death penalty because of their involvement in the 2006 murder of the rival gang member who was collecting taxes without authorization. Those defendants are: Rafael Munoz Gonzalez, also known as Cisco, 40, of La Puente, the Mexican Mafia member who allegedly controls Puente-13; Cesar Munoz Gonzalez, also known as Blanco, 36, of Rowland Heights, Rafael Gonzalez’s brother and allegedly the Mexican Mafia member’s top lieutenant; Steven Nunez, also known as Flaco, 30, who currently a state prisoner; and Angel Frank Torres, also known as Smiley, 34, who is currently a state prisoner.

The remaining 13 defendants face either life without parole in federal prison or prison sentences of up to 20 years if they are convicted of the charges in the indictment.

Those taken into custody this morning will begin making their initial appearances this afternoon in United States District Court in Los Angeles.

In addition to the eight arrested this morning, seven defendants were already in custody. Authorities are continuing to search for two defendants named in the RICO indictment – Adrian Rodriguez, also known as Trips, 25, of Huntington Park; and Henry Rick Zabala, 40, of La Puente.

This case is the result of an investigation conducted by the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department.

In addition to the agencies that conducted the investigation, several law enforcement agencies assisted in this morning's takedown, including the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives;
the United States Marshals Service;
the Pomona Police Department;
the Baldwin Park Police Department;
the La Verne Police Department;
the Montebello Police Department;
the El Monte Police Department;
the Huntington Beach Police Department;
the Gardena Police Department;
the South Gate Police Department;
and the Los Angeles Interagency Metropolitan Police Apprehension Crime Task Force (LA IMPACT).

The Injunction thrown on Puente Valley

A judge granted a preliminary injunction Tuesday that restricts the activities of gang members in 16 square miles of the San Gabriel Valley.

The Los Angeles County district attorney’s office sought the civil injunction against members of Puente 13 and Bassett Grande, which are behind violence, drug sales and protection rackets in the Valinda Corridor and the city of La Puente, officials said.

Puente 13, a multi-generational gang formed more 60 years ago, is made up of more than 1,000 members believed to engage in narcotics trafficking and "tax" collection from other drug dealers, said Deputy Dist. Atty. Michael Fern. The gang includes at least 14 subsets or "cliques."

Puente 13 is aligned with the Mexican Mafia, represented by "13" in the gang name, referencing the 13th letter in the alphabet -- M.

Bassett Grande, with more than 300 known members, is Puente 13's primary rival.

A chunk of its hierarchy was indicted by federal prosecutors last year for racketeering in connection with methamphetamine trafficking.

The indictment stated that the gang is controlled by Mexican Mafia member Rafael Munoz Gonzalez.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge James Chalfant granted the civil injunction, which designates the approximately 16-square-mile area a "safety zone."

The injunction covers the communities of Avocado Heights, Bassett, South San Jose Hills and Valinda. According to Fern, it is largest geographic area for which the district attorney's office has obtained such an injunction.

The injunction orders Puente 13 and Bassett Grande gang members not to associate with one another in public or possess weapons, narcotics or graffiti tools within the injunction area.

They also are barred from two parks in La Puente -- Bassett Park in the 500 block of Vineland Avenue and La Puente Park in the 500 block of North Glendora Avenue.

It prohibits members of those gangs from wearing gang apparel, trespassing on property and loitering in public places. It also imposes a 10 p.m.-to-5 a.m. curfew for the gang members.

A violation of the injunction can result in a six-month jail term.

To win approval, the district attorney's office produced Sheriff's Department tracking data showing how much gang graffiti there was in the injunction area.
