Gang members arrested amid MCSO’s Operation “It’s Not Easy Being Green”
The Monterey County Sheriff’s Office has reportedly arrested six people amid an ongoing investigation into crimes allegedly committed by members of a local motorcycle gang.
The investigation, dubbed Operation It’s Not Easy Being Green, began in July, after the Sheriff’s Office learned of an alleged shooting in the area of Highway 183 and the North Davis Road overcrossing.
Investigators soon identified six members of the Vagos Outlaw Motorcycle Gang as the primary suspects. The suspects have been identified as Oswaldo Fernandez (24), Emigdio Ramos (34), Hugo Ramos (29), Luis Vasquez (39), Jamie Garcia (38), and Alexandro Salinas (24).
All were taken into custody in the midst of authorities serving four search warrants at four separate Salinas residences. The investigation also led to the discovery of numerous unreported incidents of alleged threats or brandishing by Vagos gang members, the Sheriff’s Office said.
