"Dozens of arrests around the country Wednesday highlighted a criminal demographic rarely seen, but one that officials say is rooted in California and growing in reach and sophistication."

Whaddya mean,'rareley seen'? It was there for ALL to see; as evidenced by all the comments on all the Armenian related stories in this very paper (digitazied version).

All you LE peons had to do was open your eyes and ears. You'd have stopped this scam from getting so big.

Police have been warned about this for years. It's about time they took action.

How appropriate that these are the thieves who abused the socialist welfare system of the former Soviet Union because that's exactly what California has become.

The Armenians who I have encountered seem to be ordinary hard working people.
I guess I will have to me more circumspect in their presence.

This article is poorly written. The author needs to be punished for making rude and subjective commentary.

The actual sentence does not contain quotation marks. This tells me that the statement was that of the composer of this article and not LE officials. As for taking action sooner, criminal investigations take time. LE has to operate within the confines of the Constitution, ie. the 4th Amendment for one. In addition the investigation depends on the cooperation, or the lack there of, by witnesses. The LE crystal ball theory does not exist as you may think. If LE ever is allowed to circumvent the Constitution, then every American will have something to worry about. The way our legislature and Supreme Court are going, that may not be to far from the future, God help us.

Dude, you've been VERY lucky. I work in litigation in the largest law firm in Glendale (a city which is almost 70% armenian) and I'll tell you that most armenians are into some form of crime, and the rest turn a blind eye to the crimes. They have a disturbed sense of entitlement, and are more racist that I could ever come across as. I work in the largest skyscraper in Glendale. Of the 600+ people that work in that building, there is, at most, a dozen armenians that work there. In a town that's nearing 70% armenians, why is that? If you go to a gym in Glendale, you'll burn your olfactory nerves out in 10 minutes. None of the weights are ever on the rack, and there is syringes on the floor in the bathroom. They're a barbaric, uncivilized race of criminals, beggars, and all of their mothers look like Danny DeVito. You'll have 5 armenians share a 1 bedroom apartment, and share the lease on a $60,000 BMW or Mercedes, and they'll drive around pretending to be rich and famous. It's sad, really, the effort they put into appearing to be something they don't have the brains or self-discipline to accomplish.
What do you call a 35 year old armo that doesn't live with his parents? Orphan!
What's the difference between a trained chimpanzee and an armenian? The chimp has a skill!
Why do armos smell so bad? Because God wanted blind people to hate them too!

WHAT????? There are 1 million Armenian Americans, who are hard working citizines, who invented the ATM machine, the MRI etc... who are professors in the universities, police officers and marines and soldiers serving overseas as we speak. Please do not classify one million people with a 100 criminals. According to your logic EVERY MEXICAN IS A DRUG DEALER and EVERY ANGLO AMERICAN IS A NEONAZI and EVERY AFRICAN AMERICAN A CRACK DEALER! By the way, what nationality were the agents who helped infiltrate and bust this group of criminals? I hope you realize its a rhetorical question!!

Look, most armenians that aren't involved in crime are disgusted by their fellow armenians. That's just the way it is. If I were armenian (praise be to God that's not the case) I too would be disgusted to know I'm an inbred missing-link neanderthal who's home country is one of the most corrupt on earth, that still demands billions in aid from the World Bank and IMF for an earthquake that happend over a decade ago, and who's American population only makes the news when there's a hit-and-run, or a scam gets uncovered. Armenians talk about pride, but the bad outweighs the good 1000-1, and has since about 1000 a.d.

WOW!!!! stunned, just absolutely stunned!!

If you hate the people who inhabit this city so much please LEAVE!!!! go to a small pocket of the south where everybody looks the same and people are just as ignorant and uneducated as you. Thank goodness most people around this country are good, hard working, respectable citizen's from ALL backgrounds who come together to make this country great. I was born in Armenia but consider myself American first and foremost and am very grateful for all the freedom's and opportunities this country has given me and many others like me. And the actions of a few criminals do no represent a large immigrant community. And please dont forget that no immigrant group is perfect, in fact no racial community is perfect. The Irish formed gangs, the Italians did it, and the Jewish immigrants formed Criminal organizations in the early 20th century all over the east coast. Either help the immigrants assimilate and build a better community or LEAVE!!

I lived in Tujunga for over 20 years and everything im reading is true. The medi-cal fraud, section 8 housing, food stamps..the list goes on and on.
You will notice the Armos only hire other armos to work for them but they want you to hire them.

If you ever see an Armo get into an accident, stop and watch..within 10 minutes there will be 20 family members there all in the street getting in the way.

why do all the Armo males wear black leather jackets and smoke? If these males are not organized crime i would be shocked.

Time to get these people off the government T IT

This is amazing perhaps to the few who have just discovered this mess. I grew up in Pasadena, CA were many Armenian families reside, most are good people, but many are using the system to their advantage, especially the government and local state run progams. I have met many who are on welfare and also own many businesses in someone elses name. It's about time the Feds and local agencies get on board and stop all this fraudulent behavior that has been going on for at least of what I've known for over thirty years, and not just the past ten. This seems to be a favorite past time for those who are willing to try anything to get a peice of the American dream no matter what the risk knowing that most of our agencies are sleeping at the helm due to egos and political positioning, damn..........

Armenians come here, they do not work, they all get welfare and food stamps, yet they drive Merceds, BMW's, Land Rover's, range rover's. They wear the best of the best, yet, they live off of our welfare systm. They walk into hospitals and treat employees like crap and expect us to drop everything to take care of their people. Yet, they will not help you or stay with them and take care of them themselves. Armenians, Phillipinos, none of these people should be entitles to any kind of welfare or social security that we provide. Some people will say Mexicans shouldn't get it either, well, go back in History and you will discover, California was Mexico, Americans took the land away from them.

They are rude, do not know how to drive, do not have insurance and when they hit you half the time you do not get reimbursed. They use other peoples social security numbers and have fake drivers licenses. In the end though, who is to blame, California for letting this immigrants be entitled to everything. If they came here for Asylum, let them figure out how to survive. We are not even supporting our own because we are paying for too many foriegners and illegals,.

Another Armenian ripoff is to have gramps or grandma register the family mansion at DWP in their name with the senior citizen discount so that the 25 people living in it get subsidized electricity and water.

Along with shared leases of German cars, they drive salvaged ones just for the show off value.

Armenian drivers are notoriously rude and dangerous. They always exceed the speed limit and honk every chance they get. They're usually smoking and on the phone while driving. Hit and runs are common.

Buy and activate a cell phone at an Armenian store with your social security number, watch your ID be ripped off within a few months.

Armenian dentists are pretty much all that are available in Burbank and Glendale and they're the rudest ever, always trying to rip you off with extra and unneeded work.
