WIMAUMA Fl - Is a Mexican enclave of undocumented immigrants with links to gangs like MS-13. "We're wearing our uniforms, they're wearing theirs," said Mike Fabyanic, a gang expert and Tampa-based special agent with Homeland Security Investigations. "We're going to have a conversation.". Those effects could be seen in east Hillsborough, where Fabyanic says the concentration of Hispanic gangs may be attributed to the area's growing Hispanic population. Affiliation with Hispanic gangs such as Sur-13, the Norteños and MS-13 often runs along family lines. The children of migrant workers also may join gangs, tempted by the camaraderie and easy spoils of theft and drug dealing, he said. He was wanted for charges in Maryland that include conspiracy to participate in a racketeering enterprise; conspiracy to murder, maim, assault with a dangerous weapon and assault resulting in serious bodily injury in aid of racketeering; and attempted murder.
SARASOTA FL MS-13 aka SUR-13 BOSS TAKE DOWN SARASOTA FL..U.S. Attorney Robert E. O’Neill announces that U.S. District Judge James S. Moody, Jr. sentenced Basillio Alvardo (44, Wachula) to 35 years in federal prison for possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute; possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime; and possession of a firearm and ammunition after having been convicted of a felony offense. Alvardo was found guilty on February 23, 2011, following a trial. According to court documents, the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office (SCSO) initially arrested Alvardo on June 15, 2010, following a traffic stop on Bee Ridge Road.
An officer observed Alvardo’s vehicle, a Mitsubishi Gallant, had excessive window tint. Alvardo was the driver and sole occupant of the car. During the stop, an SCSO canine alerted to the presence of narcotics in the vehicle. Deputies searched the car and found more than 200 grams of methamphetamine, a loaded .38 caliber revolver, and a digital scale. Alvardo later admitted to being a member of the Sur 13 gang (SX3). He also admitted to having fired the revolver earlier on June 15, 2010, because he thought someone might be following him and trying to steal his drugs. Subsequent investigation revealed that Alvardo was a convicted felon. This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Southwest Florida Violent Crimes Task Force; the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives; and the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office.

MANATEE — Thirteen reputed members of the SUR 13 criminal street gang have been charged with racketeering and related charges, culminating an 18-month investigation by the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office and other law enforcement agencies. The sheriff’s gang unit Monday morning executed four search warrants and arrested two suspects. Four of the suspects were already in the Manatee County jail, two are in prison and five remain at large, according to a news release. Two of the suspects were also charged in 2009 homicide in Manatee County. This is the second time the sheriff’s office and agencies have targeted the SUR 13 gang with a racketeering investigation. Fourteen members were arrested in July 2007, and sentenced to prison terms of up to 60 years. Other gangs (the Mafia) have been similarly targeted with racketeering charges, which are similar to how authorities have prosecuted other organized crime activities
ST PETE FL St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Kriseman, a Democrat, said last year in a blog post that his city would be a sanctuary from "harmful federal immigration laws." The mayor later clarified that his position was symbolic because the Sheriff's Office makes those decisions, not the city. Sheriff Bob Gualtieri criticized the mayor's statement, calling it misleading. The disparate distribution of undocumented immigrant populations is on display in the Miami-Fort Lauderdale-West Palm Beach region, the seventh-largest region by total population, but with the fifth-largest population of undocumented immigrants. The area's 400,000-plus undocumented immigrants make up more than half of that estimated population in Florida. A report by the Center for Immigration Studies named Pinellas, Hillsborough, Pasco and Hernando counties — which together make up the Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater metropolitan area — as "sanctuary jurisdictions" that obstruct federal enforcement of immigration laws.
LAKE WORTH FL A band of thieves and killers from the notorious MS-13 street gang — five of them teenagers — have been prowling the streets of Lake Worth, where they shot two men to death while robbing them, deputies said. The six, all from El Salvador and Honduras, were in the U.S. illegally, authorities said. “Their intent was not just to rob, but to rob and murder victims in their own community,” said Chief Frank DeMario, chief of Law Enforcement Operations for the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office. “These are young children that just openly shoot somebody and kill you. There’s no remorse.”
