Los Angeles Times | July 30, 2014

Mapping L.A.More than three dozen alleged members and associates of a San Gabriel Valley gang said to be controlled by the Mexican Mafia were indicted on a range of murder, robbery, drug trafficking and other charges, federal officials announced Wednesday.

Of the 41 defendants named in the 167-page federal racketeering indictment, 17 were arrested Wednesday morning, 15 were already in custody and nine are still at large, according to the Department of Justice.

The El Monte Flores gang was formed in the 1960s and operates in El Monte and South El Monte. Since its origin, more than 800 people have been identified as members or associates, officials said. It receives direction from the Mexican Mafia prison gang, according to the indictment.

The investigating task force on the case included the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the Internal Revenue Service’s criminal investigation unit and the El Monte Police Department.

The 62-count indictment alleges that members of the gang commit violent crimes ranging from battery to murder, as well as robbery, burglary, carjacking, witness intimidation, kidnapping, weapons trafficking, credit card fraud and identity theft.
