Be careful what you wish for. In San Antonio, TX the meth-slinging Marcelino Deleon wanted out of the Mexican Mafia, and now two men have been charged with his murder as reported by KSAT. Oh, he's out all right.
California authorities have rounded up 67 suspected gangbangers throughout San Bernardino County who allegedly "were involved in crimes ranging from theft and drugs to murder" in servicing the Mexican Mafia as reported by KNBC: "'Armed robberies, carjackings, murder, assault with weapons, narcotics sales. This has been going on for decades,' said Fontana police Sgt. Kevin Goltara."
More than two dozen suspected members from Wilmas Gang in Los Angeles, CA have been charged with drug trafficking as reported by KABC: "the Southern California Drug Task Force stated the gang had operated in the Wilmington area since the 1950s and were affiliated with the Mexican Mafia prison gang."
Jerry "Spooks" Idrogo has pleaded guilty for his role in the murder of Julian Pesina who had a double life as police officer and drug dealer as reported by The Washington Post:
Pesina sold drugs for the Texas branch of the Mexican Mafia and paid a weekly tax, or "dime," for his tattoo parlor, according to court documents. Beneath his police uniform, his body was covered with gang tattoos. In 2014, federal investigators were probing Pesina's ties to the Texas Mexican Mafia and getting close to making an arrest that could send him to prison for years. But gang members who learned about his police job from Facebook sentenced Pesina to death instead.
In serving two masters Pesina set himself up to get squeezed from both sides.
