A 23-year-old Bulldog gang member was arrested this morning in southeast Fresno on suspicion of auto theft, vehicle burglary and receiving stolen property.

The suspect is a prolific criminal who has been arrested three times in the past 30 days for auto theft, police Lt. Burke Farrah said.

Officers recovered parts from about five auto thefts, computer parts from residential burglaries, evidence of identity theft activity and drug paraphernalia.

The suspect was taken into custody at an apartment complex at 2255 S. Maple Ave.

Balderas Elementary School, which is near the apartment complex, was placed on lockdown for about 10 minutes as a precaution, Farrah said. The suspect was arrested without incident.

An armed gang member was subdued with an electronic stun device and taken into custody in southwest Fresno Thursday night, police said.

Officers surrounded the 21-year-old man's home in the 200 block of Chandler Avenue to make the arrest, but a neighbor tipped him off, police Sgt. Eddie Barrios said.

The man ran from officers but was subdued with the stun device after he reached for his waistband. As he was arrested, officers found a loaded handgun, said Barrios, who added that the man has a history of firearms arrests.

Sanger gang member gets 60 years to life

Monday, Mar. 07, 2011
By Pablo Lopez / The Fresno Bee

A member of Sanger's Chankla Bulldogs criminal street gang was sentenced this morning to 60 years to life in prison for seriously wounding a man outside a convenience store on Christmas Eve 2009.

Shawn Montgomery, 29, sat silently in Fresno County Superior Court as he received his punishment for shooting Jaime Ponce in front of his common-law wife and four children outside the Fastrip convenience store on Academy Avenue in Sanger.

Prosecutor Chris Walsh said Montgomery, who's street name is "Sparky," is the most influential Chankla Bulldog gang member authorities are aware of in Sanger. There are about 300 of them, but none of them appeared in court to support him.

Montgomery has several tattoos on his face and head that show his allegiance to the Chankla Bulldogs. He has a criminal history dating to when he was a juvenile. "He had several chances to drop out, but he kept going back to raise his prestige in the gang," Walsh said.

After a weeklong trial, a jury convicted him on Jan. 27 of attempted murder, shooting at an occupied car, street terrorism and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

I say yes! as tax paying citizens we should have the legal right to know who recides next to us. The criminals should know that they are the ones that did it to themselves.

Sanger, Fresno police join in crackdown on gangs

Friday, Mar. 11, 2011
By Eunice Kwon / The Fresno Bee

Hours after a shooting in front of a Sanger elementary school, Sanger and Fresno police Friday announced a crackdown on gangs.

"We've reached a point where enough's enough," Sanger Police Chief Thomas Klose said during a news conference in the parking lot of the Family Worship Center in the gang-infested Chankla area of Sanger.

Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer joined him, adding: "Whether it's the city of Fresno or the city of Sanger, the boundary lines do not matter when it comes to gangs."

A 47-year-old man was killed in a gang-related shooting last weekend at a Sanger birthday party, and two others were injured. Two drive-by shootings occurred later in the week.

On Friday morning, rival gang members in separate cars opened fire on each other 100 feet away from Jefferson Elementary School during recess.

The two police agencies plan to work together, the
chiefs said.

To help, the Sanger City Council adopted stricter curfew rules in an emergency meeting Friday.

Under the new rules, officers will approach children starting at 9 p.m. if they are unaccompanied by an adult and ask them to go home. If they're out after 10, they will be detained.

This curfew, I thought has/had been in effect for years. Now all of a sudden they want to "enforce" it. There have been so many gang killings in Fresno County, they decide to start NOW to do something about it? How many have died since yesterday? If they can send a man to the moon, why can't they take control of the gangs? This has been going on since the Mafia times back in the 19th century. Well, I hope they mean it this time.



Is something missing from this article?

Who is funding this?
Does the city of Sanger have the money to pay Fresno PD officer salaries? If they do, this sounds good for the Sanger POA in furture contract negotiations!
Where are the Fresno PD officers that will perform these duties materializing from? We are told the city of Fresno has no money; and Fresno PD complains it does not have enough officers to serve the citizens of Fresno.
Are Fresno's streets so safe, and Fresno PD so successful in controlling gang violence within the city of Fresno; that this is the best plan for dealing with the situation? The recent Fashion Fair shooting comes to mind.



The law abiding citizen has lost control. We're holding hearings about Islamic or Muslim terrorist but the majority of terrorists are the gangs that have taken over our neighborhoods. I don't know how it's going to get any better. Everytime a serious effort is undertaken to quell the violence of gangs you hear an outcry from all the various supposedly human rights groups.

Gang members shoot at occupied car in Sanger

Wednesday, Mar. 16, 2011
By Eddie Jimenez / The Fresno Bee

Sanger police are looking for at least two Sureño gang members who shot and struck a vehicle occupied by rival Bulldog gang members Tuesday night, Police Chief Tom Klose said.

No one was injured in the shooting, which occurred shortly before 7 p.m. in the 900 block of Church Avenue, Klose said.

The two Bulldog gang members had given a ride to a woman who was picking up her child at a home in the area, Klose said. The Sureño gang members saw the Bulldog gang members and began yelling at them.

They shot at a black Honda the Bulldog gang members were in as they waited for the woman. The black Honda drove away.

It is not clear if the woman and her child were in the vehicle when it was shot, Klose said.

Fresno Police served warrants at five homes in Southwest Fresno on Tuesday. All of the homes are believed to be connected to violent gang members.The searches started late in the afternoon, with warrants served at two homes on Strother Avenue, not far from a school. One man was taken into custody. He was captured after he jumped a fence and tried to run away. Police say he is a known gang member.

Officers found bullets dumped in a trash can. They were searching for a gun. Neighbor Shmeka Harris witnessed one of the shootings this weekend.

“A bunch of kids were outside. Good thing they were smart enough to jump to the ground when they heard the gunshots,” Shmeka told us.

And it’s frightening to people who live here. They don’t feel comfortable in their own homes.

Les Milner told us,“I was reading my Bible when they started shooting. I do my Bible study. You can’t even study for the Lord and they’re shooting and stuff like this.”

These search warrants targeted homes in the Strother area, the Dog Pound and other neighborhoods.

Police say it’s an effective way to stop the violence.

“Once we hit a certain location, people are wondering what’s going on and other areas start to die down because they know they’re out serving search warrants,” said Lt. Mike Doyle, of the Fresno Police Department.

Officers are searching all of the homes, looking for guns and ammunition, and anything linked to the recent shootings.

They have arrested 18-year-old Justen Powell of Fresno for a shooting on March 13th, in which a woman was wounded in the arm. Officers also found a gun that Powell reportedly tossed. Police say he is a validated Strother gang member. The victim is expected to recover from her injuries.

DPD Biggest Armed Gang

Del Rey, CA

#14 Mar 24, 2011
The biggest armed gang is the Dinuba Police Department. They are basically con-men with a badge. Look at the city manager Ed Todd. He makes twelve thousand dollars a month yet he still committs crimes against innocent children who have tragically died. This is the real story behind the a true organized crime figure and his city.
