Drug Bust of documented Vatos Locos Gang Member

Last night, while attempting to conduct a traffic stop, the vehicle did not immediately stop and undercover detectives could see the occupants trying to hide something inside the vehicle. Once stopped, a .40 caliber Glock firearm with an extended magazine was found at the feet of Alexander Fuentes, a convicted felon and a documented Vatos Locos gang member.

Fuentes had approximately $3,500 dollars in cash on him and a shoe box was found in the vehicle with an additional $884 dollars and 13 grams cocaine. The driver, Onel Nonnombre was charged with fleeing and eluding law enforcement, and once he arrived at the jail, more drugs were found stashed in the rear of the patrol vehicle.

From Wikipedia

Vatos Locos (in English, Crazy Dudes) is a Subset Gang of the La Eme. Gangs using this name are active in several American states. The Vatos Locos originated in East LA but have extended their presence to Florida, Fort Pierce, Florida. They are mainly active in Fort Pierce’s South 18th Street area by Delaware and around South 33rd Street and Orange Avenue. They represent their gang affiliation with black bandanas worn in the back right pocket of their pants. Their graffiti consists of “Vatos Locos,” the Lowrider logo, or Lil Rob. These images are also present in gang tattoos. Vatos Locos are mainly Hispanics or Chicanos. Their dress consists of black shirts and khaki pants or shorts, and jewelry of chains or crosses. Most are supporters of the Oakland Raiders football team and show this by wearing similar colors.
