  1. David Utkin David Viktorovich Utkin was born on August 6, 1990 in Los Santos, San Andreas as the oldest of two children born to Viktor Utkin (January 16, 1959 – March 5, 2015) and Ludmila Utkina (nee Fridzona) (May 16 ,1964). Viktor Utkin was of entirely Russian descent, and Ludmila Utkina was of Russian, Estonian, Baltic Swedish and Ashkenazi Jewish ancestry. Utkin's paternal family have resided in the St Petersburg region since the Medieval ages and were historically aristocratic. His maternal family originates from Yaroslavl, Kursk and Parnu, Estonia. Many of Utkin's extended maternal relatives form part of the Russian minority in the Baltics. Utkin's father worked as an industrial engineer in St Petersburg. His younger brother, Robert Utkin, was born in Los Santos in 1997. Utkin's parents were emigrants from Soviet Russia who had arrived in the U.S. in 1989. They were living in Gatchina, a city to the southwest of St Petersburg before leaving the republic. They had been married in St Petersburg during a secular ceremony in 1984. His parents departed the Soviet Union using the notoriously rare Type 2 Exit Visa, which rendered them stateless as they arrived in the United States. A number of his other family members arrived in the U.S. during the 1990s; they all settled in New York City, San Fierro and Los Santos. Utkin's family has a lengthy history with Eurasian Organized Crime in the U.S. that dates back to the 1990s. Two of his uncles have been documented as belonging to criminal organizations in San Andreas since at least 1997. Several of his cousins, from both sides of his family, are involved with Eurasian Organized Crime in Los Santos, San Fierro and Las Vegas. His parents had legitimate careers and were never involved with any crime. Early life David and his younger brother Robert were raised in the Vinewood district of Los Santos during their childhoods. In particular, they lived in the neighborhoods of West Vinewood and Mirror Park. They inhabited public housing projects that housed other recent emigrants from post-Soviet states. Therefore, Utkin and his younger brother experienced a culturally Russian upbringing with parents who never fully integrated with local society. Utkin's parents were unable to speak any English, so resultantly, the first and only language that he learned in the home was Russian. He didn't start learning English until he was enrolled in the Los Santos school system at the age of 5. For several years, he experienced bullying due to his English illiteracy. Being verbally tormented and physically beaten up at schools is what caused him to pursue bodybuilding from a young age. In Mirror Park, Utkin's uncle Ivan had constructed a home gym out of his garage using stolen exercise equipment. Utkin started exercising there after school shortly after his 8th birthday. Ivan Utkin was a serial burglar who was later incarcerated for 5 years in the Bolingbroke Penitentiary for his residential crimes around Vinewood. He was deported back to Moscow, Russia from Los Santos after being released from state prison in 2009. Utkin graduated from Mirror Park Centennial High School in in 2009, at age 17. He became a renowned varsity football player during his high school years in Vinewood. He was also a competitive bodybuilder while fighting in youth MMA circles around Los Santos. He had several run-ins with the Los Santos police during his high school years. These incidents resulted from him physically fighting his old bullies. Although he had been arrested multiple times, criminal charges were never laid for the assaults. His teachers once remarked to his parents that he had a promising future ahead of him, should he pursue collegiate athletics. Upon graduating high school in his late teens, Utkin had multiple jobs. He worked at bars, restaurants and inside of surfing shops. In 2011, at age 19, he began studies at the San Andreas University's campus in Los Santos. He majored in Kinesiology while minoring in Biology. During his freshman year of university, he successfully tried out for the San Andreas University's Golden Bears football team. However, he was cut after playing just 3 exhibition games as a Linebacker. He dropped out of university after just a year due to fears over exorbitant student debt. Another contributing factor was how his dreams of becoming a professional athlete were slashed while still a student. His choice to prematurely end his education caused a significant rift between himself and his parents, to the point where they sporadically forbade him from staying at home. At one point, he considered joining the Los Santos police but instead chose to become a bouncer in the city's nightlife scene. He was pulled towards the industry by its glitzy and glamorous sub-cultures. He was hired as a bouncer in nightclubs due to his large physique and history as an amateur martial artist. Involvement in San Andreas organized crime While working in the Los Santos nightlife during his early twenties, Utkin got involved with numerous crimes. These crimes included the theft of firearms along with the production and distribution of narcotics. He sold drugs while working as a bouncer in nightclubs across Los Santos. He additionally transported stolen guns across the city. The firearms and narcotics were circulated among Eurasian criminal organizations that were operating around Los Santos. In the early 2010s, he started a close partnership with the Armenian Power gang, but never became a member of the gang himself. He was present at an Armenian Power house party at a Vinewood bungalow on October 30, 2013, during which three civilians were shot to death and two gang members wounded from a drive-by shooting. He left the scene before the police arrived and therefore escaped questioning. In the meantime, Utkin's father passed away after a lengthy battle with lung cancer in 2015. He was 56 years old. His younger brother Robert was a drug addicted teenager. Robert became homeless in Vinewood's streets after graduating from high school. Their mother threw him out of the home after his violent criminality became too much for her to handle. Resulting from Robert's mental instability caused by methamphetamine addiction, David drifted apart from him. They eventually ceased contact around 2016. Since then, they have only sporadically seen each other around Vinewood. Robert was last known to inhabit homeless shelters and missions in the area. Utkin departed Los Santos in 2016. This came after he felt pressured by intense Los Santos police investigations into the city's nightlife scene. He had been tipped off by a close friend, Aleskandr Opokin, and informed that he was the subject of a criminal investigation into gun running. Additionally, Utkin's close friend and fellow bouncer Peter Dombrowski had been shot to death outside of a Burton nightclub during a drug deal gone wrong. Simultaneously, his maternal uncle Vasily Fridzon invited him to San Fierro in order to help him co-manage a sports bar in Esplanade North. Utkin began working at the bar as an assistant manager immediately after he arrived in San Fierro. The bar was situated right on the pier and boardwalk of Esplanade, which attracted a high number of tourists and transient customers in general. Fridzon was using the bar to package and distribute large quantities of narcotics that included cocaine, amphetamines and Ecstasy. David, as his nephew, was used several times to assist these processes. In spite of the location being the subject of a San Fierro police investigation years prior, insufficient evidence was found at the time to bring about criminal charges. At some point late in the decade, Utkin formed a crew of bouncers in San Fierro. They worked inside of bars and nightclubs while involving themselves with narcotics crimes in order to earn extra money. In addition to protecting businesses in San Fierro, they were hired on at musical concerts and adult film conventions in Las Vegas, Nevada several times over a few years. Return to Los Santos Utkin returned to Los Santos, San Andreas in 2020 after he was re-assured that the criminal underworld had calmed down. Prior to returning to Los Santos, his crew of bouncers had been disbanded due to internal disputes along with better paying jobs around San Fierro. Credits @13 Ways

  3. What is Georgian Mafia? World-wide organized crime group known as the Georgian Mafia operates throughout the Middle East, Europe, United States, South America, Canada, Asia, Australia, and all other post-soviet nations. As slave soldiers were made to work for Georgia's lords in the late 18th century, some of the slaves began killing their own lords and ranch owners and making their way to the mountains and forests. In the early 19th century, killers and robbers who were made to work on the lords' farms and fled into the forests formed the Mountain Connection, and people gave them the name "Tyeshi Gavardnilebi." Many of these people congregated in the mountains, where they organized into bands of highly skilled thieves who would raid villages and steal only from the wealthy to aid the poor villages and farmers. These so-called "Yachagebi" would help lone farmers work in their farms, aiding all the innocent Georgian citizens, but their only enemy was the Kingdom they were fighting against in the late 19th century. There, we meet the man known as "Papa," which means grandfather in Georgian. Papa was in charge of all Siberian prisons and Siberia; he is a Georgian prisoner with connections throughout the whole of Russia and Europe; he was the man in charge of all kinds of crimes from across the Russia and Europe. Many criminal group leaders were captured by the assisting King Russia's soldiers and were sent to Siberia for life sentences. The man known as "Papa" operated in Siberia with other mountain group leaders, and according to the most recent information, the gold was used in Turkey, France, Georgia, and Russia. He was responsible for the largest Siberian prison break and the theft of an undetermined amount of gold from Siberian mines. Koba Jugashvili was better known as Joseph Stalin in the middle of the 20th century. Koba Jugashvili was an outlaw and a close friend of the mountain groups, which is where the Soviet Union began, and the Georgian "Papa" along with the other Georgians who were operating from the mountains funded and supported Joseph Stalin. Recently, Joseph Stalin creates a project to control the prisons where he uses old friends from the mountains arrested around the Russian prisons, including Vladimirsky Central and the rest, Joseph Stalin plants a project where old friends from the mountains are in charge of the prison Because of Joseph Stalin's cordial relationships with the heads of Georgian crime organizations, prison "watchers" were primarily Georgians. For those who were transported to the other prisons hundreds of miles away, he only needed to take his shirt off and no questions were asked. Despite the Georgians' control over the prisons, they thought of something novel and distinctive to recognize each other in the prisons all over the world. They called each other "thieves" or "thieves in law." As Joseph Stalin's idea goes like an epidemic drug across the Soviet Union prisons, Georgians started to take the positions and make their legs harder during World War II, taking over all the prisons, businesses and connections of Soviet Union oligarchs, investing more money back in Georgia and supporting para-military groups in the 80s, as a new face shows up after Joseph Stalin's death, also Georgian Edward Shevardnadze who was brought to Georgia in order to support Jaba Ioseliani's paramilitary group and governmental activities, he gathers up the other thieves and arrests Ioseliani after the Apkhazian war, Edward Shevardnadze has brought down the Berlin wall, made a straight gateway to the Europe for Georgian thieves as Georgian thieves put him in charge of Georgia from the prisons. Because prison was like a second home to them and they couldn't be detained again for what they were doing, it was the greatest spot for Georgian thieves to operate from. So that's what I'm trying to communicate here. I wanted to say that everyone in the world knew the term "Russian Mafia" and referred to everyone else as a member of the organization. Nobody gave Georgians a second thought, and that was always the plan. Georgia, which joined the UN and Europe, presents itself as innocent to the outside world, has zero corruption and no crime, and we have everyone in the world in control of everything you believed the Russian Mafia to be in charge of. Yes! That's why FBI director finally declares, "There is no Russian Mafia, it was all Georgian." That's us, Georgians, who ended the Berlin War and are in charge of the entire global syndicate that you believed to be Russian. Because of this, the Italian prime minister claims that "The Italian mafia we knew has been taken over by Georgian Mafia." The front page of every newspaper in Europe features a Georgian. Perhaps I made it plain that there is no Russian mafia because Georgians have been in charge of every major syndicate working in Russia for centuries and will continue to do so till the end of time. The presence of organized crime groups from various countries has been a persistent challenge for law enforcement agencies around the world. Among these criminal organizations, the Georgian Mafia has gained attention for its activities in the United States. This topic explores the influence, operations, and impact of the Georgian Mafia within the United States, shedding light on their criminal activities, structure, and law enforcement efforts to combat them. The Georgian Mafia's operations in the United States present a significant challenge to law enforcement agencies tasked with combating transnational organized crime. While efforts are being made to disrupt their activities and dismantle their networks, the fluid nature of these criminal organizations requires ongoing vigilance and international cooperation to effectively combat their influence. By understanding the structure, operations, and impact of the Georgian Mafia, law enforcement and society at large can work towards mitigating their criminal activities and protecting the well-being of communities affected by their presence. Origins in the former Soviet Union: The Georgian Mafia emerged during the dissolution of the Soviet Union in the 1990s, when criminal elements took advantage of the chaotic transition. With the advent of globalization and easier travel, Georgian criminal groups began to establish a presence in the United States, particularly in major cities with sizable Georgian immigrant communities. The Georgian Mafia typically operates in a hierarchical structure, consisting of different criminal cells or "thieves-in-law" who have significant influence and control over illicit activities. Criminal Activities: The Georgian Mafia engages in a wide range of illegal activities, including but not limited to drug trafficking, extortion, money laundering, credit card fraud, prostitution, and arms smuggling. The Georgian Mafia often collaborates with other international criminal organizations, such as Russian, Ukrainian, and Armenian syndicates, to carry out illegal activities. Other Major U.S. Cities: The Georgian Mafia has also established a presence in other cities with significant Georgian communities, such as Los Santos. The Georgian Indictments in Los Santos: The transnational nature of the Georgian Mafia presents unique challenges to law enforcement agencies, including language barriers, limited resources, and difficulties in gathering evidence across jurisdictions. U.S. law enforcement agencies work closely with international counterparts to investigate and disrupt the activities of the Georgian Mafia, sharing intelligence and coordinating efforts to dismantle criminal networks. Governments have implemented legislation to strengthen law enforcement's ability to target organized crime by imposing stricter penalties, enhancing surveillance capabilities, and providing additional resources for investigations. Social Impact: The presence of the Georgian Mafia in the United States has resulted in increased violence, drug addiction, and the exploitation of vulnerable communities. Additionally, the infiltration of legitimate businesses poses a threat to the economy and undermines fair competition. Governments and law enforcement agencies continuously refine their strategies to prosecute and convict members of the Georgian Mafia, utilizing tactics such as undercover operations, asset seizures, and witness protection programs. Formation of Botkoveli Crime Group. Conflicts in the post-Soviet states of the Caucasus have intensified after the collapse of the Soviet Union. Since 1991 to 1994, an unrecognized Nagorno-Karabakh Republic has been at war with Armenia and Azerbaijan. The newly established Republic of Georgia was involved in the Abkhazia and South Ossetia ethnic conflict from 1991 until 1993. Numerous criminal organizations have started trafficking large quantities of guns and drugs during these conflicts. Georgia was split among many criminal organizations. One of the most well-known was Jaba Ioseliani's Mkhedrioni, a paramilitary organization that operated in Georgia from 1989 until 1995. Mkhedrioni was the provider of arms to the criminal groups in Tbilisi (capital of Georgia). Calling themselves brotherhoods, 90s of Georgia was heaven for them. Even though there were ups and downs, Thieves by Law still had a huge popularity and respect among Georgian population. 21st Century. As the last century came to an end, various political groups gained popularity. People were assembling and entering the streets. Mikheil Saakashvili, the head of the United National Movement, took office as president in 2003 and reorganized Georgia following the Rose Revolution. They discovered a brand-new, least corrupt police force, known as "Patrol Police." Many Thieves by Law were deported quickly after police seized total control of the nation. Mikheil Saakashvili, who was feared by many, drove Thieves by Law and their factions out of Tbilisi and the rest of Georgia. Many people began to view him as the leader of a nation who was also a legal criminal. Although most Mafia members were deported to Europe and Russia, some of them discovered a method to reach America. Georgian mafia in Europe, Today. One of the biggest, most potent, and influential criminal organizations in Europe is the Georgian Mafia. It is regarded as the most brutal and well-organized criminal organization. They are highly hierarchical and structured. According to estimates, the Georgian Mafia makes EUR 250,000,000 annually in Germany alone. The similar loss has been reported in all other European nations. It is well known in Italy that Georgians enter apartments undetected using specialized hand-made instruments. One of the Georgian hideouts included jewelry valued at EUR 2,000,000, according to an Italian operation. Georgians typically invest their money in hotels and real estate, as opposed to Russian biker gangs, who invest their money in vehicle repair shops, cleaning services, private security services, and prostitution establishments. Massive arrest in Europe. The majority of Georgians migrated back to Russia or Turkey after the widespread arrests of Georgian Mafia members in Europe because doing business in these two nations is the simplest. They are still both corrupt. Even if that is the true, a number of Georgian Mafia members have already been spotted in Tbilisi and Kutaisi as a result of the new government. Some mafiosis are currently relocating to the United States, and if they have a chance there, there will be a new Georgian mafia revolt. A new wave of immigrants from Georgia. Officials from Europe claim: "La Cosa Nostra? Our mob? They have no chance of ever being anything like the Georgian Mafia. There isn't a criminal organization quite like Georgian. SOKHUMI, GEORGIA, 1993. In Sokhumi, the Georgian National Guard, Mkhedrioni, the Borotebis Brotherhood, and a few other criminal organizations were engaged in combat with Russian militants and separatists. Military soldiers from Georgia were evacuated together with criminal and civilian volunteers after Sokhumi entered the Russian sphere of influence. As they were returning to Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia, one of the volunteers, Irakli Botkoveli, and his fellow members of the brotherhood were able to steal a Russian military vehicle, a Ural-375. Botkoveli's group. After emigrating to Europe, Russia, Turkey, and other nations, Irakli Botkoveli's group continues to play a significant role in the trade of Caucasian weapons in Syria, Turkey, Russia, Bulgaria, Romania, France, Italy, Morocco, Argentina, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dubai, Egypt, and nearly all of Europe, Eastern Europe, and Asia. The majority of Irakli Botkoveli's group members are permanently barred from returning to Georgia and are therefore forced to conduct business with other legal faces and figures there instead. At the moment, Botkoveli and his group are conducting business in west United States of America.

  7. Waking up from the American Dream A Liberty City boy with heavy Greek admixture, Aerin has only done his best to survive the harsh reality he faces. After a good few weeks in Los Santos, he begins to realize that life in the city isn't all it was cracked up to be, back East. These are his misadventures through his life- however short it may be. His desperate attempt to make a living for himself in the city often leads to more than he could have expected, however his troublemaking personality tends to wean him into situations. He could barely remember himself, and the faces that he strove to ingrain into his memory that were now long gone. It started a while before, but the most recent event he could recall with the most clarity was the attack at the gas station. A simple mistake that could have been solved with an apology turned into a grim murder and a bout which Aerin would not forget. The two thugs waited for him outside of the shop until growing tired and tried to coax him into a vulnerable position. A fight soon broke out. The flurry of punches and stabs were quick in succession from both sides of the aisle, until it spilled out onto the street outside in a loud tussle.
  8. Joseph Roselano Las Venturas – 1966 Back in 1966, on March 21st, Joseph Roselano was born in Las Venturas. Joseph grew up as the only child in his lower class family. His parents were of Italian descent, his mother Lucia Roselano was a housewife and his father Flavio Roselano was a working man often busy with honest work. Joseph would stay around the house as a baby and toddler until the unfortunate passing of his mother Lucia. This is when Flavio was assigned to take care of his son. Having to work to provide for himself and Joseph, Flavio was away from home most of the time. Leaving his son Joseph to different families in his community during working hours. Fate struck and Flavio lost his job, devastated and in need of money. Flavio began to hang around the local entertainment industry in Las Venturas depressed and out of options. This is when he came in contact with Sylvester Buschetta. Later on he would work under Sylvester in the industry of Las Venturas, he would fix games as a bookie, rig gambling games and generally work his way up under Buschetta. Joseph would be dropped off at the Buschetta residence almost every day when Flavio would be out on business with Sylvester. Joseph would play with Frank and Benjamin Senior, developing a close friendship with the duo. Years passed and so did his Joseph’s father Flavio. Joseph later joined back up with Frank and Benjamin Sr a few years after the Hispanic racial war, and began collecting envelopes around the Old Venturas Strip working with the duo, in the footsteps of his father. Just like Frank and Benjamin Sr, Joseph's greed and wrath for money is what drove him to do the things he has done. In the end he managed to single-handedly work six casinos on the Old Strip, helping Benjamin Sr host his executive games almost every day. Once "The Buschettas" were only hanging by a loose thread after Benjamin Sr got whacked, but Joseph continued to work under Frank, now on a smaller scale, extending his grip on the scene.

His father William Martorano a second-generation American Italian who was working in construction as Foreman and his mother Teresa was an American stay-at-home mother who loved her kids and wanted to take care of her four children. James had an older brother, Philip, by 10 years which he idolized and loved since a very young age and two younger twin siblings, a brother, and a sister. The two older brothers had a loving relationship without any jealousy and ill-feelings, Philip always protected and took care of his younger brother James and James took care of his William growing up in a mob-riddled neighbor himself and frequenting the local hangouts, showing up late back home, it was no surprise within the household that he had ties with the local crew. Him growing up around the Scarfo era and being one of the older-heads of his time was well-respected under the Stanfa crew. In 1993, William was murdered during the Stanfa-Merlino conflicts. This put a lot of responsibility on Philip who stepped into his father's shoes, meanwhile James always despised of the life, his father & pressure it bought up on the family. Teen Years James had a hard time growing up along with his siblings since life got really difficult for them because they had no source of income. Teressa was forced to work day and night and Philip dropped-out of school and came in contact with the mob in an attempt to help with the money. James didn’t take it well, Phil working for the mob, doing exactly what their father did and died. When James came to age he enlisted so he could get a chance to get away from it all and fight for a just cause. He started at the lowest rank and over the years he kept getting promoted, climbing up the ranks. James cut all ties with Philip only kept in touch with his mother whom she gave most of his paychecks. He deployed mainly in the middle east, fighting the Jihad and he was trying to be away from the states for as long as possible. Meanwhile, Philip got convicted back in the states for five years. The Last Decade Through the years James was getting promoted constantly for showing great character and holding the army standards to the highest. It didn’t take too long for James to join the 75 Ranger Regiment as Staff Sergeant, commanding his squad. James ran countless missions in Afghanistan and few in Syria with a supportive role in the latter country. During his last mission, James and his squad were after an HVT(High-Value Target) rumored to be a bomb-maker. Charlie squad, the one James commanded, entered the HVT building and took out several hostiles silently, only to get rushed moments later by several suicide bombers, most of which were kids. James commanded the execution of all the hostiles. James and his squad survived but a part of them died during that mission. It wasn’t long after the mission that James resigned and he was honorably discharged from the corp. James got back to Philly for a year, reuniting after a long time with his mother and his two siblings. James was fighting insomnia and even when sleeping he had a hard time staying asleep for more than a couple hours. Recently Teressa told James that he should reunite with his brother Philip. James didn’t want to stress and hurt his mother he sold most of his stuff and decided to relocate to LS.

  14. The Caprione Crew Founded By: Joseph & Giacomo Caprione Founding Location: Los Santos, San Andreas. Criminal activities Racketeering, extortion, fraud, murder, weapons dealing, illegal gambling, loansharking, bookmaking, conspiracy, assault, bribery, drug smuggling, money laundering. The Caprione Family is an Italian-American Mafia (La Cosa Nostra) organised crime family based in the San Andreas city of Los Santos. It was formed in 2010 by Giacomo Caprione, who led the family until his death in 2017 the present day — now being operated by the Boss, Joseph Caprione and his strong right-hand man Tony Santora with around 30+ members. Origin Sometime in the winter in 1990, an Italian immigrant from Brindisi named Giacomo Caprione formed a gang of street thugs in what is now the Caprione Crime Family with some of his friends who were also immigrants. After pulling small-time jobs like truck thefts and car-jackings, Caprione formed alliances with another Italian-American street group with the promise of high-up positions and steady profits if Caprione was in charge. In 2010, the two groups merged, forming the Caprione crime family. The family specified in thefts, murders, burglaries, smugglings, gambling, and extortion. The family started to get in touch and do business with gangs in surrounding cities and even some in surrounding states. Overall in its first three decades, under Giacomo Caprione, it fared well with other gangs. The Caprione Assasination Attempt In 2015, a capo named Victor Fara questioned Caprione's authority and started talking behind his back. Gino Moretti, a soldier who talked to Fara frequently, informed Caprione about this. Caprione had a sit down with Fara trying to sort the dispute, but after Fara tried to control Caprione's rackets and conspired to kill Caprione, Caprione had him killed. On October 11, 2015, John DeVano was killed outside of his home by two gunmen. Death of Giacomo Caprione and power vacuum On July 8, 2017, Giacomo Caprione died of a heart attack at Los Santos Phillbox Hospital. Following his death, many family members feared a violent fight for leadership. A rumour had started that Joseph "Joey" Francisco, the family's consigliere, was trying to become boss. Before becoming consigliere, Francisco served as an ineffective captain with an unstable crew. Exercising power, Francisco demanded that captain John LoCosta, who was another candidate for boss, be shelved. Following this, underboss Tony Santora ordered his murder. Joseph Francisco disappeared in October 2017 and his body has never been found. Although Santora was on LoCosta's side, John LoCosta was seen as power-hungry and ruthless. Two Caprione capos, Dominic Disilvestro and Peter Corrado were trying to take power, gaining support for Corrado to become boss and Disilvestro consigliere. Seeing this, John LoCosta ordered three of his soldiers, Antonino Galante, Bernard Conelli, and George Caccaro to perpetrate the hits on the two captains. Although the three agreed with Disilvestro and Corrado's plan to take over, they had to follow LoCosta's orders. On November 23, 1959 Disilvestro and Corrado met at Corrado's home to discuss their plan further. Galante, Horrocio, and Caccaro threw molotov cocktails through an open window of Corrado's house, killing Disilvestro, Corrado, and Corrado's wife Juliana. It was after this hit, that Santora and Joseph Caprione (the new consigliere after Joseph Francisco's death) saw that LoCosta had to be stopped before he caused another civil war. On January 2, 2018, LoCosta was shot and killed outside a Casino Lounge in downtown Vinewood. It was after this murder, in March 2018 that Joseph Caprione took the position of boss, and Santora, remaining at the underboss position. Santora Regime Tony Santora When it was finally decided that Joseph Caprione and Tony Santora would rule in 2018, the Caprione family controlled the north-part of the city of Los Santos. This would generate about $6,000,000 over the next two years. It was during this time the family came into contact with a smart and wealthy supplier named Samuel James. Samuel would later become a capo in the family. It was also during this time that Santora was charged for one count of assault and one count of attempted murder, and was brought to court. The trial went on for about five months, and a powerful captain named Gino "Big Boomer" Moretti was put into the position as acting boss because even though Santora was free and could still rule and control, he felt he had enough to deal with. Two witnesses eventually bailed when they learned of Santora’s position in the Los Santos underworld. The case was dismissed. Santora brought new gambling rackets and other low-level easily intimidated businesses into the question, boasting new business operations for the family. Once business was a pizzeria. After extorting the pizzeria (and most businesses on the same street) under the pretence of security and protection, Santora and his colleagues became friendly with the owner. In about 2 months of extorting the business, Santora, Joseph and other Caprione family members were doing business out of the back room. The family would sneak in guns from Italy in the same truck as the delivered cheese, which would come every week. Although the owner did not want this, he was under a contract with the family Historical Leadership Boss: 2010 - 2017 — Giacomo Caprione — deceased 2017 - Present Day — Joseph Caprione. 2017 - Present Day — Vinny Arcangelo Underboss: 2010 - Present Day — Tony Santora.

  16. The Romanian Mafia | Clanul Burlanelor The fall of the communist regime after the 1989 Revolution offers the chance for the development of Romanian organized crime groups internationally, consolidating underworld ties with the Balkan mafias, neighboring Romania. Networks of human trafficking and pimping that procure victims in the east of the country and in Moldova, easily manipulated women who grew up in the captivity of poverty of the previous century and men eager to work hard to support their families, create the possibility of mafia intervention in the future docile people. Thus, the neighborhood crooks who noticed this opportunity associated with the underworld groups and gave birth to an entire mafia operation on Romanian territory. One of the largest organizations at the beginning of the 21th century was led by the son of the former commissioner of the Romanian police in Craiova, Marius Burlan, also known as Sacalul, who was unmasked by the Directorate for the Investigation of Crimes of Organized Crime and Terrorism in 2005 for fraudulent employment contracts of Craiova's workers who were promised salaries of thousands of euros in Bulgaria, Ukraine and Greece, but which proved to be signed documents that force the employee to 15 hours of slavery in construction sites and sanitation. Following an investigation, Marius Burlan and his brother-in-law were convicted of human trafficking and corruption, but the two were released after Judge Mihail Grigorescu received 50,000 thousand euros from the mafia network of which the two were part. The degeneration of the Romanian faction took place during the intervention of the General Anticorruption Directorate, which put an end to the manipulative chain of public employees on the Oltenian thieves. A number of 31 people were investigated from the beginning to the end of this operation, 31 of which 24 were arrested in 2008. Prosecutor Tudor Constantinescu proves the existence of a mafia hierarchy organized under the leadership of Marius Burlean and his brother-in-law, Andrei Tudose , which includes 28 characters suspected of drug and weapons trafficking, armed robberies and burglaries, fraud and pimping. The 3 people heard in the end: Judge Mihail Grigorescu, prosecutor Victor Chirila and Deputy Commissioner Eusebiu Flavius, Costel Podgoreanu, were also arrested for corruption, bribery, fraud and money laundering through legal affairs run by this underworld group from Bucharest The rebirth of the Burlane clan resumed in 2010, this time with the cooperative support of the Balkan Mafia, under the uncertain leadership of a Kickboxing fighter, Cristian Simionescu, and his Serbian manager, Vukmir Bojevic. The two rose through the Romanian underworld due to the countertops arranged for the matches of the young Oltean. Then came fraud, tax evasion, pimping, human trafficking and even narcotics and arms trafficking during communism, sanctions applied to the two mafia bosses who would build an empire in Balkan. In 2021 with the help of the Balkan Mafia within the United States, Cristian Simionescu sent some of his most trusted right-hand members of the Burlane Clan to the States to extend the clan's saga. The modern theme of the Romanian groups from the States stands out, especially, through the mafia ensemble from Los Santos, San Andreas, directed by Mihai Iacobescu along with his brother Adrian Iacobescu and his cousin Alexandru Barbosu all being from Craiova. The fluidity of his criminal operations and his associates, but also the possibilities offered to Balkan immigrants, strengthened the notoriety of the underworld group. In terms of Out of Character, the faction follows a more organized development process than the one presented so far. The old members, but also the players who will join the project will be influenced to raise their role-playing standards in order to portray a Romanian-American clan as close to reality as possible. Thus, we focus on creating stable relationships with the characters we interact with and aim not to enter into unfavorable conflicts in terms of role-playing or forced partnerships Out of Character. The management recommends all members to focus mainly on the development of the character and to put in the background its place in the faction, because we follow the evolution of the associates and reward it based on their influence in the character. The leadership reserves the right to elect its members, even if the faction is not invite-only. The members will present a specialized role-play on the theme of the Slavic underworld, not on the style of the typical romanian men. For this reason, the faction, especially its leadership, has the right to conclude any connection with players who do not have a remarkable role-play, who do not show mafia development and who cause quarrels or disgust through his actions. At the same time, anyone who has associated with the faction assumes the opportunity to receive Character Kill at one time or another, for whatever reason.

  18. DO NOT DISTRIBUTE OR MODIFY IN ANY WAY ATF & DEA's introduction and background to the 'South-East Mob' to present day including an insight into documented illegal activities and events through time The is a group that for the most part is comprised of American-born individuals, often hailing from the lower and lower-middle class neighbourhoods but not limited too. The group was established within Los Santos' Murietta Heights district in the late eighties, as a response to a number of state policy changes that would see the once prolific industrial zone lose it's hold over many of the previously supplied local, and out-of-city businesses. focused namely on upholding the reputations within the sectors they still had support from, though it was soon evident that there was no more strength in numbers, and the group moved in the direction of activism as well as supporting parties that favoured particular policies, namely relating to the imports and exports as well as any tariffs imposed from government officials when referring to the supply of particular goods. These measures, however did not prove worthwhile in the long term due to constant shifts and changes made by the state of San Andreas, along with the loss of loyalty among unions and major stake holders within the Murietta Heights, and Cypress Flats zones alike. It was these changes that had the most drastic affects for local business owners, large-scale suppliers and manufacturers within the city's industrial areas, and pushed some to greater lengths to protect the livelihood of their businesses and the future development of their companies. A few of the influential figures that remained apart of unions, or tied to the moved their efforts away from preserving current ideals in terms of policy, instead opting to impose their own regulations among themselves in support of existing industrial lots and supply chains within Los Santos. Many of these support networks were created off the back of black market deals and illicit funding, which was made possible by the removal of less serious members the previously had, who in their eyes were dead weight and had served their purpose. These factors combined would see the group begin to move their dealings off the books, or 'underground' as their involvement in blatant racketeering and illegal trades were amplified. The exploited those under it's umbrella, be it established companies or individuals, or those within their own ranks. This came by way of the illegal exports and the trafficking of particular goods out of the previously mentioned industrial zones, typically involving but not limited to alcohol, firearms, bonds and counterfeit goods. These dealings are often masked by the guise of legitimate business, and image of the hard-working American men, who abides the law and upholds a moral code. The Group are still known to have a hold over, and hand in many legal and illegal operations Los Santos' industrial zones have become to hotbed for. Their hierarchy is based off of the purpose and dedication an active member can show, as well as their will and wits to achieve highly, no matter their background or where they come from. Gun trafficking has always and will always be the main source of income for many organized crime groups, since the fall of the Soviet Union in the 90's, the access to firearms increased two fold. Resulting in most atrocities we see today. Los Santos has been a breeding grounds for gun trafficking and now with increase in demand, many organisations have stepped their game up to meet this demand. Recent reports states that since 2019, the city of Los Santos has seen a 34% increase in gun related crimes, most directly involving most well known organisations that exist in the city till this day. Picture seen above of a recent sting in connection to a known organisation, believed to be associated to OPG In 2001, with the support of a grant from the National Institute of Justice (NIJ), RAND initiated a research and program-development effort to understand the nature of illegal gun markets operating in the city of Los Santos, San Andreas. The primary goal of this project was to determine whether a data-driven, problem-solving approach could yield new interventions aimed at disrupting the workings of local illegal gun markets serving criminals, gang members, and juveniles in Los Santos. There were three key components of this research and development project. First, we developed a software tool designed to support strategic analyses of firearm-information resources, such as Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) firearm-trace data, San Andreas state handgun-purchase and -sale data, and local Los Santos Police Department (LS PD) gun-crime data by identifying key illicit pathways through which criminals acquire guns. Second, these data-analysis techniques and illegal gun– market research findings were incorporated into an inter-agency working-group process that developed a community-based intervention intended to reduce the illegal flow of guns to Los Santos–area criminals. Key participants in the working-group process included ATF, LS PD, the U.S. Attorney’s Office, state and city prosecutors, academics, and other criminal-justice agencies. Third, we conducted an analysis of ammunition purchases in the target area of Los Santos to highlight the possibility of additional analyses and interventions. By studying applicable firearm laws, making good use of available data sources, soliciting input from several law-enforcement agencies, developing and implementing strategies, and evaluating their results, we demonstrate that this approach can result in effective interventions that have the potential to reduce the supply of illegal firearms. After sharp falls from the peaks in 2011, Los Santos’ violent-crime rates began to worsen in 2018. In 2018, the city registered a 27-percent increase in homicides, and, when we proposed this study in 2001, Los Santos was on track to show a 12-percent increase over 2000 (LS PD, undated). Other crime categories, including robbery, aggravated assault, and rape, were showing similar increases. As a consequence, Los Santos’ violent-crime rate (922.3 per 100,000 residents) was higher than the rates in Blaine County. Only Liberty City had a higher total violent-crime rate. Los Santos’ homicide rate (9.3 per 100,000 residents), however, substantially exceeded Vice City’s (7.3 per 100,000 residents). Much of the crime, particularly homicide, was, and continues to be, gun-related. The group's primary focus will revolve around facilitating the supply of firearms from sources inside and out of the city, as well as the 'restoration' of legal guns for criminal use. We intend to have a general involvement in racketeering as well, by the way of fraud, money laundering and illicit taxation. OOC This faction aims to realistically portray an American crime group based out of Los Santos' industrial zones, and around the establishments within. Recruitment is done strictly in character, with a heavy focus on your initial approach and how your character fits within the network thereafter. We encourage those interested in roleplaying with the faction to focus on their own character, his/her desires, needs and flaws before focusing on being a member, as solo-roleplay and how you conduct yourself around those who aren't apart of the faction is just as important. We're not race-recruiting, anybody with the IC potential and drive to climb within the organisation will be considered from that standpoint. OOCly we ask that you follow all server rules, remain cordial to the staff and other players, and message myself or @Bandolero should there be any questions regarding the faction or joining. CK rights are to be sent to the leadership of the faction upon becoming a member.

Possessing an intimidating physique and demeanor, Thomas has been known to assert himself in recent situations as a reliable and stoic man. History Born in Alderney, Liberty City. Alo is the son of a local gym owner Frank Alo who is said to have ties to the Pegorino Crime Family in Liberty City. After finishing high school, Alo worked as a mechanic for several years whilst simultaneously functioning as an associate of the Pegorino family in Liberty City. This was also around the time when Alo married his high-school sweetheart ‘Maria’ - However, around 1996-1997, Alo decided to leave his role as a mechanic entirely to work for the Pegorino family as upon welcoming his daughter into the world, he had to find more avenues of income. Alo, already building a reputation for his quirky money-making schemes became quickly acquainted with notable figures in the Pegorino family such as Joey Pegorino. By 1998, the Pegorino family had become engaged in a three-way gang war with the Sindacco and Forelli families. The hostilities lead to Jimmy Pegorino - the boss of the Pegorino family being arrested, the assassination of the Forelli-controlled Mayor Roger C. Hole, the death of Sindacco family Don Paulie Sindacco and the massive bombing and destruction of Fort Staunton. The Pegorino family was significantly weakened by this, it was further devestated by the arrest of Jimmy Pegorino and the unwillingness of Joey Pegorino to lead. The subsequent death of Jimmy Pegorino lead to further dismay within the family, encouraging many to depart to other families and ventures. Taking this opportunity, Alo decided to migrate to Chicago to raise his family and resume his work as a mechanic. During this time, Alo was also chopping stolen vehicles in order to further his income and through this he made another connection with a Chicago based crime organisation, however the extent of Alo’s involvement was limited due to his concentration being given to his family and daughter. In 2001, Alo decided to sign up for the USMC and was sent away to Afghanistan, for a standard one-year tour. Not accustomed to the extensive discipline, Alo had a difficult time initially adjusting in the Corps but eventually found his own place. Whilst at the Corps, Alo made a few dear friends with whom he still maintains contact with now. To commemmorate his short-lived time in the USMC, Alo has his dogtags displayed as a tattoo around his neck. Present-Day By the year 2015 - after the death of his wife Maria, Alo again looked to move elsewhere. Alo’s daughter was now old enough and away to college, this lead to Thomas heading to Los Santos where he quickly became acquainted with Frank ‘Icarus’ Russo - an associate of the Clinton Avenue Crew. The two quickly became great friends, and began collaborating on various schemes and businesses together such as; Waste Management, Pornography and even extortion. Through Frank, Alo then became acquainted with a mobster named ‘Roy Capra’ who anointed him with the moniker of ‘Sunshine’ due to his quick wit and intelligence. Alo now works with Roy Capra within the Clinton Avenue Crew. Recognizing the vast opportunity in LS, Alo decided to make a bold move and create an online-casino with the help of a long-term associate 'Kevin O'Keeffe'. The financial output from this avenue was immense and quickly proppelled Alo into a great earner, earning him significant respect and reliability within the crew. After time has passed within the Clinton Avenue Crew, Alo has now asserted himself as a reliable and respected member of the organisation falling under the radar of the 'Capo'; Salvatore Lena. Alo now functions as the right-hand man of Roy Capra as well as the personal driver of Salvatore Lena. After building a name for himself within the Clinton Avenue Crew, Thomas Alo was formally put 'on-record' with the Capo; 'Salvatore Lena'. Over time, after building a reputation of loyalty, dilligence and an overall stoic individual - Thomas Alo was nominated for membership by his friend, Roy Capra who was an influencial and respected figure within the Clinton Avenue Crew. After being directly involved in the assassination of Anthony Scutari & Benito Fallone - Thomas asserted himself as a solid individual and was quickly propelled into the rank of Soldier within what is now the Los Santos Crime Family and was a made man.
