  1. "Some people fail to believe in black magic, but I've seen it with my own two eyes" - La Bruja Thread will follow Erandi DeLaGarza. Some things may be cut out and some other screens will simply just be blank without text. If you have any questions or inquiries, you can forward them to my PMs and I'll get back to them as soon as possible. Credits to @ElDiablo for the story, I've edited some of it to fit Erandi's time line as it's taken from his thread but for the most part it ties in with the events listed on Antonio DeLaGarza's thread. I. Introduction: Erandi DeLaGarza, born into a family of loving but money motivated gangsters. At about 6:30 PM on the 14th of July 19??, Erandi DeLaGarza was born into the DeLaGarza family; Antonio and Estrella DeLaGarza. Growing up, Erandi was often spoiled by Antonio and Estrella, due to Antonio lacking presence due to serving time in a federal prison, he often spoiled her through his associates on the outside... by the time Erandi was 10 years old she had owned two ponies and a horse that she couldn't even ride yet, alongside countless designer clothes; Gucci, Prada, Christian Louboutin, Jimmy Choo, Louis Vuitton, Supreme and more. When Erandi was fifteen years old, the DeLaGarza's were profiting and Antonio instructed his father in law to buy his daughter a bright pink 2009 Hummer that was in mint condition which he spotted on the internet through a smuggled phone inside his cell and ordered to had all of its accessories white gold plated. Erandi's name was written with diamonds on the dashboard to become a collectors' item. Being an only child, Erandi was given expensive gifts constantly as Antonio tried to compensate her for being an absent parent but the situation got bad for Erandi when Estrella got arrested in Mexico for driving with an unregistered weapon and with ten kilograms of cocaine that she was transporting to the border as a favor to her own father. With contacts, money and corruption, Estrella was released after serving only four years in a Mexican state prison but by this time Erandi had followed on her footsteps and graduated from the Tecnológico de Monterrey private university, Culiacán campus with the same career as hers since she also fell in love with a criminal. The criminal she fell in love with was a commander and a operative for the Los Ninis, a Sinaloa Cartel (CDS) cell in Culiacán and whom was able to pay for Erandi's college bills but mysteriously dissappeared a few months later after Erandi's graduation party in what seemed to be a quiet execution from a rival cartel, although in was really an inside job to get Erandi away from the lifestyle. Due to his disappearance, Erandi became a commander witin Los Ninis without wanting to due to the people looking up to her as she was considered to be her ex's "right hand" and partner in crime. Although never having killed someone, Erandi became quite respected in the cell due to her smartness and brains to think when needed. Although this didn't help with the fact she was going through depression after losing her boyfriend, and in return she became addicted to gambling. After becoming addicted to gambling, she lost over $200,000 in a casino which belonged to her mother and ran to Los Santos after it to be with her father and hide from her mother. Despite trying to hide from her mother after losing a lump-sum of money belonging to her, Estrella came to Los Santos and tracked Erandi down with Antonio's help.
  2. The Border Brothers gang was founded in 1989 by Sergio Gonzalez-Martinez and others in Tijuana, Mexico and spread into San Andreas in 1990; recruiting criminal illegal immigrants in barrios across San Andreas, Arizona, Nevada, Denver and Tijuana Mexico. The organization runs the bulk of their operations through San Diego, Los Santos, Fresno and Oakland. The Border Brothers will often identify themselves through the letters BB or the number 22; as well as 2=B or XXII. It’s also not uncommon to see the depiction of a jaguar-shaped Aztec warrior god’s head, Ocelotl, encircled by flames, with eight elongated flames to depict their affiliation. Their clothing is another means to identify them, where members will most often dress in black or blue clothes, with bandanas. The Border Brothers are classified as one of the fastest growing STGs (Security Threat Groups), and are considered to have the highest and most validated members by the Arizona Department of Corrections, Rehabilitation & Re-entry from their latest report. As such, they seem to work under two distinct branches: street and prison. The prison gang operates under a paramilitary structure of President, Vice President, generals, lieutenants, sergeants and soldiers, whilst the street gangs are more loosely organized. Some of the most important things that separates Border Brothers from other Latino criminal organizations is their utilization of a high number of “Paisas”; Mexican Nationals who live or become incarcerated in the US, usually on drug trafficking charges across country borders. This allowed the organization to operate under the radar by generating less controversy compared to Sureños and Norteños. This is achieved by staying quiet in the criminal sphere, keeping strictly to themselves, only speaking Spanish and not claiming territory (Pogrebin, Qualitative Approaches to Criminal Justice: Perspectives from the Field, 2002, Page 306). In regard to race, an article published by East Bay Times (Scott Johnson, May 2011) states that the Border Brothers tend to accept people of all races. An “OG” (original gangster) Border Brother was documented stating the following: “We don’t discriminate, if they’re down to die for us, they’re welcome. It doesn’t matter if he’s black or white, anything. But if you turn your back on us, that’s another story.” Pogrebin also quotes another testimony stating the following: “The Border Brothers don’t want to have anything to do with Sureños-Norteños. They keep out of that ‘cause it’s not our fighting and all of that is stupid... Either you are a Chicano or you’re not. There is no sense of being separated (Case 3).” (Qualitative Approaches to Criminal Justice: Perspectives from the Field, 2002, Page 306)
  3. As the drug war in Mexico escalates, drug cartels have began to employ sicaria, or hit women; the women assassins, ranging in age from 18 to 30, work alongside men. Most women are assigned to different jobs alongside Cells — such as halcones (lookouts), hit squads, and extortionists — and operate independently; the hit women are trained to use rifles and handguns and sometimes accompany their male counterparts; women in Mexico and have been previously accused of being part of kidnapping rings, often assigned to keep watch on captives; women have also held roles as recruiters, transporters and leaders of drug-smuggling cells. An alleged hit man told Mexican federal police that beautiful young women are working as killers for the Juárez and Sinaloa drug cartels. “They have to look good to deceive our opponents,” Rogelio Amaya Martínez said in a videotaped interview by Mexico’s Ministry of Public Safety.
  4. ( Isidro "Castro" Molina on June 16th, 2020 ) Isidro Molina Isidro Molina was born in Cienfuegos Cuba on November 15th. While his family was quite well off for living in a communist third world country, his mother wanted more out of life, for herself, and for her son. She one night had a dream of winning "el bombo" o "la lotería de visas". The next day she instantly went to the store, filled out a form and a week later was greeted by Cuban government officials knocking on her door. It turns out the dream she had became a reality. The officials brought back information on the details along with preparing the visas to the United States of America for the entire family. Isidro, only two at the time, had no idea what was happening and soon found himself on a plane, with his mother, to Miami Florida. His father stayed back in Cuba as his mother had convinced him he shouldn't leave and that she'll never forgive him if he leaves her. Soon enough Isidro learned his father made the conscious decision to stay in Cuba, leaving his mother and himself alone in a new country. Resentment for his father was the weakest feeling he felt. Growing up in a new country, learning a new language and adjusting to it's culture was rough for Isidro's mother. She was already 23 at the time and had a difficult time learning English while working multiple jobs. They lived in an area within Miami called "Little Havana", named after the Capital of Cuba. The area was extremely poor in wealth, with many houses being completely run down. The public schools were not any better, with various gangs and cartels using it as a recruiting center. During his time in high school, Isidro got involved with several Colombians who knew higher ups in a Colombian run drug organization. By his sophomore year of high school, Isidro was selling powdered cocaine around Miami, primarily by South Beach where the majority of the wealth lives. Come his junior year, he was offered an opportunity to make more money than he could imagine by helping transport product. Cocaína y Prisión The Colombians had setup a drug trafficking network in which they would fly small planes carrying product to Caribbean Islands and then have them transported to Florida through speedboats and makeshift submarines. Isidro was offered the opportunity to unload the speedboats that made it through the Coast Guard and help load the product onto vehicles in the state for transport and distribution. The Coast Guard and the Drug Enforcement Agency's collaboration soon started capturing many speedboat operators, not only losing millions in product with each one but imprisoning trusted and experienced members. In an effort to stop bleeding out valuable members, the organization tried having lesser run the boats. Isidro was chosen on recommendation from a higher up he became close friends with in Miami. Isidro was given the task of transporting powered cocaine on a 'go-fast boat' from Puerto Rico to The Keys in Florida. He ran this route once every 1-2 months at different intervals to lessen the chances of being caught on a schedule. Being a smuggler brought him more money than he could work with so he attempted to help out his mother in anyways he could. She was accepting of the money at first, as it helped them move out of their rundown house and into a more suitable location within Miami. However, as more and more kept coming, she started to worry and not accept the money. She knew if her son was to be caught smuggling drugs by boat into the US, he could face 20 years in prison. Luckily Isidro was never caught smuggling drugs by boat but instead was caught distributing within the state. With no solid connections to the Colombian's at the time of his arrest, the DEA was able to achieve a sentencing of only 6 years. Isidro was locked away at FCI Miami, a low security correctional institution. Castro Two years into his sentence, Isidro was forcibly transferred to San Antonio Texas due to gaining influence with the Hispanic crowd in Florida and participating in a violent act. Over at Texas he had no reputation, and while being Cuban, stuck out like a sore thumb among Mexicans and White groups. Isidro knew he had to get with one to survive and through time he was able to develop a reputation with the San Antonio Tango Blasts (otherwise known as Orejones). A San Antonio Spurs tattoo can still be seen on his left forearm, representing his affiliation. During this time, a Tango Mexicle nicknamed Isidro "Castro" as he found it comical he was Cuban (in reference to the Cuban dictator Fidel Castro). At the end of his sentence, Castro was released and attempted to get in contact with his Colombian friends to only realize that organization had mostly dissolved, having been taken over by a larger cartel and hunted down by US federals. Castro now considered himself a Paisa Meixcle and was given information that he could be useful in Phoenix Arizona by one of his remaining Colombian contacts. There he met Ignacio Valdivia in a coke deal, becoming friends and beginning a working relationship. After a while Castro had enough money and decided to temporarily retire from the business and lay low. However he was unable to control his money spending habits, running into the need for it once more. After a brief conversation with Valdivia, he was instructed to head to Los Santos for a new operation.
  5. Antonio "Diablo" DeLaGarza was born in Culiacán, Sinaloa in 1980. His relatives were from different parts of the Sinaloa state including the Badiraguato region also known as the "Mexican Sicily". Some of the most notorious druglords from Mexico are from that area. Diablo grew up around the "Narcocultura" or "Narco-Culture" and eventually joined a criminal cell from the town of Cosalá. According to Jesús Campos (one of his former cellmates), the nickname of "El Diablo" or "The Devil" comes from his grandmother who called him like that when he started to grow a moustache and his looks resembled the "Lotería" (Mexican Bingo) "El Diablo" or "El Diablito" card. When he was twenty years old, Antonio was arrested while doing his first contraband run into the United States. He drove a car through the Nogales, Arizona port of entry with one kilogram of heroin and five kilograms of pure cocaine stashed into his vehicle's trunk. Antonio served part of his sentence at the Federal Correctional Institution, Phoenix (FCI Phoenix) where he "cliqued up" and became affiliated to the Border Brothers prison gang. During the first years of serving his sentence, DeLaGarza constantly got into fist fights and brawls with rival prison gangs which earned him the reputation of a violent inmate amongst the general population but also gave him extra years. DeLaGarza was also suspected of taking part in the stabbing and murdering of another inmate but due to the lack of witnesses and any other form of evidence the investigation couldn't proceed. As time went by and his notoriety grew, DeLaGarza acquired a leading position within the Border Brothers prison gang. With this, Antonio started to run his own "hustles" such as gambling and drug smuggling activities into the facility but he was caught and sent to the USP Tucson (a high-security United States federal prison for male inmates in Arizona) where he served the rest of his sentence. While being in Tucson, DeLaGarza built strong business relationships with other high profile gang members from different prison gangs with whom he organized narcotics and weapons deals that took place on the streets of Phoenix, Arizona with the use of smuggled cellphones, guards corruption and his wife's assistance. But Diablo always planned on building an even bigger operation at the time of his release by taking advantage of his family ties to the infamous Sinaloa Cartel and the border-wide structure of the 22 gang. After his release, DeLaGarza continued with his ambitious goals and expanded his operations into the state of San Andreas on behalf of his father in law by creating an alliance with a notorious Mexican Mafia crew from Los Santos through contacts in common from Phoenix and Sinaloa. Antonio's wife, Estrella Mondragón, met Antonio when she was seventeen years old and Antonio nineteen. A year later, Estrella and Antonio got married but Diablo was also arrested during that year. Diablo's daughter, Erandi, had already been born and Estrella decided to study Accounting at the UAS (Universidad Autónoma de Sinaloa) in order to aid on her father's fiscal declarations being that he was part of a Sinaloa Cartel cell. Estrella perfected her skills at money laundering as Antonio became affiliated to a prison gang known as the Border Brothers 22. Eventually, Estrella got herself a business VISA and visited Antonio constantly while he "did his time" in the Arizona federal prison system and also created money laundering operations on U.S. soil. DeLaGarza prohibited Estrella to take Erandi with her to the visits due to fear of any sort of retaliation against him as he was starting to become a "shotcaller" for the gang, so Diablo mostly knew his daughter through family photographs. Estrella began to help Antonio with the deals he organized from "the inside" with the help of her father, who also grew up in rank within the cartel. The DeLaGarzas were profiting, when Erandi was fifteen Antonio instructed his father in law to buy her a 2009 Hummer H2 that was in mint condition. Campos says that Diablo found the vehicle while browsing on the internet through a smuggled phone and negotiated its price from his cell. Some say that Erandi's name was written with diamonds on the dashboard for the car to become a collectors' item. Being an only child, "Erandita", as Diablo is used to call her, was given expensive gifts on the regular since Antonio tried to compensate for being an absent parent but the situation got very bad for Erandi when her mother Estrella got arrested in Mexico for driving with an unregistered weapon and with one million U.S. dollars and three million Mexican pesos that she was delivering from Mexicali to Culiacán. With contacts, money and corruption, Estrella was released after serving only four years in a Mexican state prison but by this time Erandi had followed on her footsteps and graduated from the Tecnológico de Monterrey private university, Culiacán campus with the same career as hers since she also fell in love with a criminal. Jairo was a young and prominent CDS operative and a member of "Los Ninis", a narco-cell from Culiacán under "Los Chapitos". The new boyfriend paid for Erandi's bills including college but he mysteriously dissappeared a few months later after Erandi's graduation party in what seemed to be a quiet execution from a rival cartel. Devastated, Erandi fell into depression and gambled a lot of her parents money in a rebellious act against her mother eventually leading into a strong fight and a break up. Due to this, Erandi decided to visit her father in Los Santos, San Andreas as soon as she heard he was in town. When Antonio notified Estrella about this to ease her worrying, she also flew to L.S. After reuniting and living together on the same apartment for a few months, the family slowly began to act normal again and the relationships between Estrella, Antonio and Erandi got stronger. Soon enough, the DeLaGarza's would begin to operate as a whole clan once more but this time more carefully, or so they thought.
  6. Fernando Garcia was raised up in a poor family, in the southern part of Aguascalientes, Mexico. Garcia grew up around a violent environment, where all the kids did anything for money, from stealing, to selling drugs, to even killing at the ages of twelve to thirteen, which led to him getting involved in the narcotics business. He started to sell drugs until his parents found out about the schemes he has been involved in. When he turned sixteen his father forced him into enlisting into the army, lying about his age, as his looks didn't match his age. Back then joining the army, or even the police was a death sentence due to the corruption that had its tentacles wrapped around the government. Mexico was controlled by all the drug lords, and most of the guys who tried to fight for the 'liberation' of their country usually died at the age of twenty. When Fernando was nineteen he enlisted for the Military Police where he served for ten more years to come, he took advantage from the whole situation and abused most of his power. Because of the low income of money coming his way, he decided to cross the border, almost brainwashed with the whole American Dream mindset.
  7. Story of Luna Mauricio Luna, or just commonly known as Luna (meaning 'moon' in Spanish) is a Mexican male in his late twenties/early thirties. An ex-military from Mexico finds himself in San Andreas to find a better life, or as everyone calls it 'chase the American dream". As regular jobs were not cutting it for him, hungry for money Luna ends up associating himself with people who make their living by committing home invasions. In a matter of weeks, Luna finds himself breaking into one of the houses with his new crew. The home burglary takes an unexpected turn and everything goes sour. Luna and his associates are arrested and charged with burglary, however, Mauricio only gets a minor 8-month sentence, as he had zero criminal record in the past. Inside the joint, Luna being a Mexican national meant that he'd have to program with the 'paisa' car. He found himself integrated within the paisa community inside and found many men from similar backgrounds to him inside, whether they were drug mules for cartels, illegal immigrants waiting deportation and so forth. Time went on and Mauricio had began to build a relationship with an infamous group within the paisa car, known as 'Border Brothers'. They were a group of Mexican nationals, who gangbanged on the outside and had very close ties to cartels back in México. Luna was hungry, that's the whole reason he found himself inside the system. This was a great opportunity for him, he was taught hustles on the outside by other criminals, and eventually obtained contacts on the outside world to continue his journey into becoming a career criminal. As Luna was about to finish his sentence and leave the prison, a keyholder of the 'Border Brothers' gang approached and slipped a note to him. He said 'When you're outside and ready to put in the work, go see this person, he will take care of you'. The note said 'Motel, Sandy Shores' and underneath it "El Araña'. Without too much thought, Luna, after finishing his sentence decided to follow his intuition and find this person who would help him get back on his feet in the outside world. This thread will follow the story of Mauricio Luna and his development as a member of 'Border Brothers'
  8. The purpose of this thread is to follow Martín Cano's development. Martín Cano was born in Baja California, and raised in Los Santos, San Andreas. His Father an immigrant from Michoacán, and his mother a border child, from Baja California/San Diego. Martín grew up a subject of poverty, along with many other Hispanics within the city, if not the majority. Times were different back then though, being born in the 1980s, you can imagine the atmosphere was completely different to it is now. Martín grew up throughout the 80s and 90s, when gang culture was at it's peak. He got involved with a group of 'paisa' folk, who were from the same background as him. The group would go on to commit petty crime, such as petty theft, low level drug dealing and so forth. Time went on and Martín's father was soon deported back to Mexico after being discovered by immigration, working in the states without legitimate papers nor a greencard. This left a huge impact on Martín's family, now the main source of income had gone. Martín's mother was forced to struggle to keep herself and children alive, she worked many jobs, someone had to put food on the table. Years went by and Martín grew older, he found himself falling and unable to get himself back up in the world of crime. Deeper and deeper, but it's alright, surely he'll be able to get himself fixed up and straightened out before it's too late, right? Who knows. His mother knew that wasn't true, she tried to move out of the state to Texas in order to get herself and her children away from the city disease of gang violence and whatnot. It went well, it was a clean slate, until Martín eventually fell into similar circumstances, however this time in Texas. After spending a while in Texas, Martín returned to Mexico and found himself travelling from town to town. After becoming involved with a biker gang, he eventually became a patched in member after an estimated 7 months of being associated with them, and undergoing his prospect phase. Years went on, and Martín eventually became a nomad. It was then, when Martín decided to return to the states, back to Texas. Martín was soon arrested and charged for possession of an illicit substance and served within a level two state prison. Level two's aren't quite the same as level threes and level fours. Things pop off all the time, people seem more aggressive and easily provoked. This is mainly due to the fact that lower level prisons usually have a less organized system inside as to higher levels, where organizations such as The Mexican Mafia, Nuestra Familia, Aryan Brotherhood, Black Guerrilla Families and so forth operate at a much tighter and constructed level. During Martín's time incarcerated in the state of Texas, he soon became associated with the infamous 'BORDER BROTHERS' organization, an organization which operates both in the USA and in some parts of Mexico. Border Brothers was founded in Tijuana during the 1980s and soon grew greater into the United States, infiltrating prisons in California, Arizona and Texas, along with other neighbouring areas. Time went on, and Martín became an official member of the group. He would soon find himself working his way to a position of power, until he became keyholder on the mainline. Martín was released from incarceration in early 2020, and upon his release, he was tasked with travelling to San Andreas with intentions to support the small number of paisas attempting to create a movement within the state. Martín was met by Antonio De La Garza, a long time friend who had also served time with Martín. Now, it's all in writing, who knows where this story will end.
