Injunctions target gang members

January 26, 2008|H.G. Reza

Permanent injunctions were issued Friday against rival gangs in San Clemente and San Juan Capistrano forbidding members from engaging in a wide variety of noncriminal activities, including riding bicycles in public with other gang members.

Law enforcement officials said the restrictions are necessary to stop the gangs from terrorizing citizens. Since the temporary injunction was issued in November, gang-related calls to police dropped 33% in San Clemente and 85% in San Juan Capistrano, authorities said.
