A Central American resident who allegedly belongs to a latino gang has been arrested in Carson City by immigration authorities and the Nevada Highway Patrol. The young man belongs to a gang known as Shadow Park Locos in the country of El Salvador. The gang reportedly is involved in homicide, extortion and carrying out terrorist activities.
Reno authorities caught wind that Rene Hernandez-Mejia was in the U.S.A illegally and ultimately tracked him down in Carson City. Mejia was booked into a jail cell reserved for immigrants who try to bypass normal immigration procedures. Hernandez-Mejia was being held in custody until he can be sent back to where he allegedly committed various crimes – El Salvador in Central America. Immigration agents will ensure Mejia is properly charged for his crimes listed by El Salvadoran authorities.
