Glendale worries about East L.A. gang graffiti found in city

Veronica Rocha (LA Times) | September 24, 2011

Glendale police are investigating graffiti tied to an East Los Angeles gang that appeared in parts of the city, prompting concerns from residents.

Police noticed the graffiti about a month ago in the area surrounding Fremont Park in the 600 block of Hahn Avenue, said Lt. Susan Hayn, who oversees the department’s Criminal Investigations Bureau.

“It scared the hell out me because I know what that could mean,” Glendale resident Lenore Solis told the Glendale News-Press. “If we don’t nip it right away, it could cause some problems.”

The graffiti made reference to potential gang ties to the Mexican mafia, according to Solis, who said she has learned about gangs from working as a chaplain at the Twin Towers Jail in Los Angeles. The graffiti first appeared as two initials representing the gang’s name, Hayn said. But in the last couple of weeks, graffiti appeared in two areas in Glendale and have spelled out the gang’s name, she said.
