Developed Strategy Targets Prolific Gang Member (NR78ad)
Los Santos: Detectives from the Los Santos Police Department's Major Enforcement Section have conducted an operation resulting in the arrest of a prolific gang member affiliated with 99 Ganton Mafia Crips.
A noticeable increase in violent crime within Harbor Area led to the need to develop additional strategies to remove repeat offenders from particular communities. The Major Enforcement Section, which is housed under the Department's Gang and Narcotics Division, was deployed specifically to address repeat offenders in the areas which showed a violent crime increase.
The operation was launched following a surveillance operation of 99 Ganton Mafia Crips which revealed credible information about the distribution and sale of illegal narcotics around the Grove Street area.
A violent offender, Angel Madrigal, was arrested on the evening of April 1 outside of his registered property on Grove Street. Madrigal was charged with several offenses, including one count of battery of a peace officer; one count of resisting a peace officer; possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell; and one count of sale of a controlled substance.
The Los Santos Police Department will continue to actively pursue these chronic offenders as a means of removing violent felons from the streets and to curb gang-related violent crime in the City of Los Santos.
Anyone with further information that could help identify and target the sale of illegal narcotics is asked to contact the Gangs and Narcotics Division, Lieutenant Lanusse at 555-70-550. During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be directed to 1-877-LSPD-24-7. Anyone wishing to remain anonymous should contact [email protected].
