From the Queens Chronicle:
Seven members and associates of a Latin Kings sect known as the "Woodhaven Mayans" were arrested and now face narcotics and weapons charges, Queens District Attorney Richard Brown announced Friday.
The gang operated primarily within the confines of the 102nd and 106th precincts, according to Brown.
“A morning wake-up call by the police armed with a court-authorized search warrant earlier this week resulted in the arrest of seven individuals – six men and one woman – and the seizure of a large quantity of illicit drugs and a defaced firearm," Brown said in a statement. "These arrests should serve as a warning to other drug dealers and gang members that the law enforcement community will continue to aggressively track down those who traffic in drugs and illegal firearms and seek to put them in prison.”
The defendants were identified as David Golden, Jesus Merced, Janet Rodriguez, Alberto Santiago, Malik Santiago, Edgardo Torres and Travis Gonzales. Torres, Gonazalez and Golden are listed as Queens residents with no specific neighborhood and Merced in from Hempstead, LI. Rodriguez and both Santiagos are from Ozone Park.
