The LASD began their investigation in January 2013 when they arrested high-ranking Armenian Power gang member Gevork “Dopey” Simonian. Simonian’s arrest revealed connections between Armenian Power and the Mexican Mafia. Further investigation showed that the Mexican Mafia had been coordinating their criminal efforts by using Virgen-Deleon as a remote liaison.

After obtaining a warrant and arresting Virgen-Deleon in Salina, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office charged the suspect with two counts of conspiracy to commit assault with a deadly weapon and seven counts of street terrorism. Virgen-Deleon is currently awaiting extradition to Los Angeles County for prosecution.
