Gangs in Victoria

Gang activity in Texas is growing and a new gang is marking its territory here in the Crossroads. A new report from Texas D.P.S. is uncovering what group now poses a threat to Texans. The report also has some other startling details.

News Center 25’s Amanda Brown spoke with local law enforcement officials.

The report reveals that current gang membership across the state likely exceeds a hundred thousand individuals, with more than twenty-five hundred gangs operating throughout the state. Gang experts said our location makes us vulnerable for gang activity, because the now number-one gang "Tango Blast" started up nearby in Dallas, Fort Worth, Austin, and Houston but there are things parents can do to make sure their kids don't fall victim.

The Sheriff’s Department said they are available to help parents who fear their children are involved in gangs. Visit http://www.txdps.state.tx.us/director_staff/media_and_communications/TXGangThreatAssessment.pdf for the full D.P.S. report.
