Authorities dealt yet another blow to MS-13 in its ongoing campaign against its number one target. Four alleged Maryland MS-13 gangsters were indicted on murder and racketeering charges on Tuesday.
24-year-old Daniel “Necio” Flores-Ventura, 31-year-old Vilas “Happy” Sail Argueta-Bermudez, 25-year-old Willians “Tigres” Ernesto Lovos-Ayala, and 24-year-old Michael “Humilde” Campos-Lemus were all taken into custody in connection with a 2015 murder.
According to the indictment, they allegedly murdered a man on July 16, 2015 in Montgomery County, Maryland. The victim had been reported missing on July 18, 2015 and his body was found on September 29, 2015 in Woodbridge, Virginia.
The men are alleged to be members of the Uniones and Molinos Clique of MS-13. The two-count indictment alleges that from at least 2015 through September 2017, the defendants were members and associates of MS-13 who planned and committed murders, drug trafficking and extortion.
MS-13, an international gang composed primarily of immigrants or descendants of immigrants from El Salvador, has grown to become one of the largest street gangs in the United States, with various branches or “cliques” operating around the country, including Prince George’s County and Montgomery County, Maryland.
