Injunction sought against San Bernardino County street gang

The San Bernardino County district attorney’s office Friday asked for a court-approved injunction to crack down on a Rancho Cucamonga street gang that uses the downtown area as its “gang turf.”
Dist. Atty. Michael Ramos says the injunction would allow police to arrest members of the Cucamonga Kings gang if they engage in any gang activities, from selling drugs to flashing gang signs.
“For decades, the people of Rancho Cucamonga and the surrounding communities have had to sit back and suffer numerous crimes at the hands of these local terrorists. Not on my watch,” Ramos said in a statement released Friday.
Under the proposed injunction, gang members would face arrest in a specified “safety zone” that includes Rancho Cucamonga’s Old Town Park, Cucamonga Elementary School and Rancho Cucamonga Middle School. The legal action would prohibit gang members from gathering in the area or loitering.
