LAPD arrests another of its Most Wanted

first_imgOn Wednesday, Councilman Tony Cardenas introduced a motion to establish an Animal Cruelty Reward Fund to help law enforcement officials close unsolved animal-cruelty cases. Analysts said gang members and others often breed dogs – particularly pit bull terriers, which one expert called the most adopted and euthanized dog at local animal shelters – to fight. The dogs are often sold or used in fighting and have even been used to attack police, authorities said. Delgadillo said dogs taken from gang members would be retrained and made available for adoption. At a news conference, Delgadillo displayed Amy – a once severely abused red nose pit bull terrier, now a playful dog who visits sick children in hospitals – as an example of the life change in store for captured dogs under the program.

Authorities previously apprehended Angel Zevallos in Guatemala City in the shooting of a security guard; Steve Alex Garcia in Rosarito Beach in the shooting death of a gang rival; and Kody “Monster” Scott in South Los Angeles on assault and car-theft charges. With Broady’s arrest, police added Dion Durell Hayes, 25, a member of the Swans, to the Most Wanted list. He is wanted in the shooting death of Andre Williams on July, 5, 2005. Meanwhile, Los Angeles City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo marked the 100th day of what he calls his fight against gangs by pledging to go after those who abuse dogs or use them in crimes. He said some gang injunctions will be amended and provisions added to future ones when necessary. “Today we are sending a message to the gangbangers who terrorize L.A. residents and their pets,” Delgadillo said. “If you use a dog to intimidate, to assault people or pets, if you abuse your own pets, we will come at you with the full force of the law.” A violation of the provision could bar a gang member from owning any animal for three years. A citywide ordinance awaiting City Council approval would allow law enforcement officers to seize gang members’ dogs that are used in violation of a gang injunction or are mistreated by gang members. A narcotics-trafficking suspect arrested this week has become the fourth gang member on the Los Angeles Police Department’s Most Wanted list to be taken into custody, authorities said Thursday. Carlos Merrell Broady, 35, whose gang name is Wink, was videotaped selling cocaine to undercover officers, authorities said. They said they raided a residence in South Los Angeles and found him hiding between a mattress and box spring in one of the bedrooms. “His capture makes this community much safer,” said Capt. Charlie Beck, deputy chief of operations for the South Bureau. Broady, who had been wanted on a federal drug-charges warrant, was part of an investigation targeting the Black P-Stone gang, which operates in the neighborhood of the Lower Baldwin Hills. last_img read more
