OC Judge Issues Gang Injunction

Posted by Courtney Pilchman | Mar 30, 2009 | 0 Comments

A gang injunction was issued against Orange Varrio Cypress (OVC) gang. There are allegedly 55 members of OVC who will be forbidden to associate with one another. The purpose of issuing an injunction is to try and break up criminal street gangs.

What the injunction forbids is gang members associating with each other, intimidating others, carrying concealed weapons, graffiti, possessing burglary tools, wearing gang attire and being out past a 10 pm curfew.

This is the sixth injunction issued to Orange County, California gangs. Other cities such as Santa Ana, San Clemente, Anaheim, Orange and San Juan Capistrano have also had injunctions issued against street gangs in their cities.

According to the Orange County District Attorney's Office, from January 2005 to December 2008 there were 16 attempted murders, 53 firearm or dangerous weapons violations, 29 assaults crimes, 35 fights, 82 drug or paraphernalia-related incidents and 53 graffiti crimes in the safety zone.
