mexican mafia and homeboy industriesNearly two dozen members of three Northeast Los Angeles gangs united by the Mexican Mafia have been indicted by a federal grand jury on charges of racketeering, extorting money from drug sellers and conspiring to ki*l rivals.

The indictment unsealed Thursday reveals the Mexican Mafia or La Eme united the leadership of three multi-generational gangs — Frogtown, the Rascals and Toonerville — that control territories in Atwater Village, Glendale and northeast Los Angeles.

Setting aside decades of rivalry, the gangs’ hundreds of members united under the leadership of Arnold “Arnie” Gonzales, a key leader of the Mexican Mafia serving a life sentence in Pelican Bay, and Jorge Grey, Frogtown’s leader or “shot caller,” according to the indictment.

Grey and Frutoso “Drowsy” Mendoza and a third defendant remain at large.

The groups unified under a “peace treaty” with Grey — also known as “Bouncer” — serving as the alliance’s leader, authorities allege. Together, the gangs controlled the narcotics business and collected so-called taxes from street drug dealers operating in the area.
