EME POLITICS ON THE CENTRAL COAST?
We got an interesting bit of information regarding Eme expansion into the Central Coast. According to what we heard, SOCAL shot callers have been given their marching orders to start organizing in places like Guadalupe, Santa Maria, Lompoc. Orcutt, Nipomo and Oceano. These areas have traditionally been tax-free zones but they may not stay that way for long. The goal, of course, is to collect street taxes and whatever else can make homies some bucks. One of the shot callers is from the Black Angels and another from Hawaiian Gardens. They now have a crew of about seven who are starting politics in these virgin areas.
From the law enforcement side, we know that Nipomo had two drive-bys in eight days, which is a lot for that town. So this may be an indication that some muscle is already being flexed. One of the drive-bys happened on South Oakglen Avenue in Nipomo. A 53-year old male was driving south on Oakglen at around 2:00 AM on July 8 when somebody opened up on him. He survived a couple of bullet wounds. Police are now looking for VICTOR "SPEEDY" GONZALEZ. During the investigation, they found a bunch of spent shell casings in SPEEDY's front yard and they're looking for him as a witness to the event.
Last week, SAN LUIS OBISPO sheriffs arrested 20 meth dealers, most of whom were Caucasians, and seized a whole lot of crystal. Those bustees are being prosecuted by the US Attorney in Los Angeles. Ouch! That's a Federal beef and a lot of time could be had by all. But among those arrested for the crank was one homie with solid connections to the brothers. So we'll see how this shakes out.
Right now, LE in SLO, says they've seen no evidence of Eme involvement. Yet! But they've also said they wouldn't be surprised if a validated homie shows up in their investigation. One set that seems to be figuring prominently in the action is NIPOMO 13. Stay tuned for more.
