West Side Hoover Criminals

West Side Hoover Criminals

The W/S 94 Hoover Criminals Gang (NFHCG) or 9-Foe Hoover Criminals Gang, also known as the Low-Downs and formally addressed as the 94 Hoover Crips, are a predominately African-American street gang. Their base of operations is located on the West Side of East Los Santos, San Andreas. They're a sub-set under the larger Hoover Criminals Gang umbrella.

They were birthed during the late 1960s, originally known as the 94 Hoover Groovers in its earliest notion.

During the 1970s they were approached by the West Side Ganton Crips to target a gang they both shared a hatred for, which at the time was known as "Figueroa Playboy Hustlers". This lead to them adding on the Crips moniker to their name. For the most part this was short-lived, when a prominent member of the West Side Ganton Crip Gang was murdered in a gang-related shooting. All fingers were pointed at the Hoover Crips, this sparked one of the earliest gang-induced wars.

Jefferson became a gang hotbed during this time. As these rivalries continued, by the 1990s The Hoovers dropped their crip affiliation and formed the Criminals card, which led to them adopting the "Hoover Criminals" alias. The disenfranchisement of their Crip card is rooted from these rivalries, they did not see a need to remain under the Crip umbrella when they're constantly feuding with them. On the contrary of them renouncing their affiliation, their infrastructure remained in tact for the most part. Nothing changed drastically, they still abide by the same hierarchy, vernacular, and traditions.

Their feuds with the Neighborhood Crips or Rollin 0's is unmatched to any rivalry with any blood gang across Los Santos. Despite their notorious engagements with Neighborhood Crip factions, they often had disputes with every other card under the Crip umbrella. This hatred prompted them to adopt the "Anybody Killer(ABK)" or "Everybody Killer(EBK)" mantra.

The 94 Hoover Criminals Gang border another local street gang better known as W/S Been Paid Tray Mafia, whom occupy Figueroa & 93rd St. The Been Paid Tray Mafia group has a violent history involving drug trafficking disputes and gang-influenced shootings. Their upcoming was somewhat similar to The Hoovers except they never fell under an umbrella. They are their own entity current day, being heavily influenced by The 94 Hoover Criminals Gang. Additionally, their alliance would be known as the "Hoo-Mafia" movement. Been Paid coexists with an Asian Crip set known as Asian Boyz, there are no notable conflicts between the two neither an alliance. It's safe to assume they're on neutral terms.

W/S Been Paid Tray Mafia
The W/S Been Paid Tray Mafia(BPTM) clan originated as The 9-Tray Boys in 1987. Their primary focus started with drug trafficking but over time they expanded their horizons. The 9-Tray Boys was founded by Louis James a/k/a Louis Mafia or Mafia-L. His intentions were to form a get-money-fast group without the politics of being a street gang. Of course this turned to more as time progressed. One of the earliest affiliates, Tony Lyles a/k/a Fat Tony, was arrested in 1993 in relations to the murder of a Florencia 13(F13) member. It's believed Fat Tony took the charge for Louis Mafia in order to keep the tight-knit drug circle in tact. Their rivalry with Florencia 13 would be their most notable one as they were in a heated gang dispute over drug territory.

Ultimately this lead to a string of shootings in the area causing the violence to skyrocket during this era. Towards the late 1990s their jurisdiction was given the moniker "The Murder Mids" due to the large influx of murders and crime in general surrounding their area.

Ruling their Jefferson neighborhood with a strong hand in the streets during the early 2000s they adopted the name W/S Been Paid Tray Gang. This alias was brought about due to the large sums of drug money they're pulling in daily. It was estimated that they were bringing in over four thousand dollars a day, which might be a lower amount in comparison to a large scale drug trafficking organization but it was enough for what it was. This caused sporadic shootings to occur a lot more frequently. The younger Been Paid Tray Gang affiliates were a lot more ruthless and even a few didn't care for the money. This caused their rivalry with Florencia 13 to intensify, in 2004 Uriah Carr a/k/a Tank was murdered on 94th & Hoover Street outside of the Jefferson Plaza. This lead to a viscous exchange between the two congregations, eventually forcing Gang Task to get involved and open a case on the entities. This case was built up over a total of 14 years, with damning evidence and charges. This would eventually cause a joint-investigation on the two gangs.

In 2006 Johnny Gay a/k/a J-Money, age 29, was facing the death penalty for Capital Murder and six other felony charges. He was believed to be one of three shooters in the case of four downed Florencia 13 affiliates on Vermont Avenue. Johnny signed an affidavit and plead not guilty to the plethora of charges presented against him. He fought his case in front of a grand jury to his best ability. Utilizing a public defender, his resources were low at this point and it didn't work out in his favor. He was found guilty on all charges, evidence suggested this. He ended up being sentenced to 120 years in federal prison, receiving four life sentences. He will be eligible for parole after he has served 25 years. This put a dent into the Been Paid Tray Gang's infrastructure. J-Money was a middle man for their weapon pipeline, therefore the gangs activity was stagnant for the next year or two.

In 2008 gang activity began to rise spontaneously. This lead to the coalition to create an alliance with the 94 Hoover Criminals Gang, where they'd create their own gun and drug trade. This brotherhood would be more known as the "Hoo-Mafia" movement started by Roderick Mays a/k/a O.G Maybach, a key figure in the W/S H.C.G group, and Louis James a/k/a "Louis Mafia", the founder of the W/S B.P.T.G congregation. They'd often function with each other at parties and dabble in gang-induced activities.

As the pace began to pick back up and they started to indulge in street related activities, the gang took yet another loss. In 2014 Louis James a/k/a Louis Mafia was murdered outside of the Coin Laundromat located on Figueroa Street. He was shot over fourteen times and it's speculated that Florencia 13 is to blame for this slaying. The death of Louis Mafia was probably the worst one so far, everyone genuinely had love for him. This unfortunate event created a domino effect within the gangs infrastructure. Causing the faction to lose its organization and foundation. The influence of the W/S H.C.G became more prevalent in the years to come.

The death of Louis Mafia caused them to adopt the W/S Been Paid Tray Mafia alias. They added the Mafia moniker to their name to pay their respects to Louis Mafia, the founding father of their lifestyle. His presence in the gang laid down the stepping stones within their territory and paved the way for their affiliates. Although present day W/S B.P.T.M may be loosely structured, they still keep their original morals. Following the basic laws that Louis Mafia set down for them.

Allegiance
Today, the allegiance between the two gangs is stronger than ever. LaMarcus Boone a/k/a O.G Cinco 4 Times, another respected figure of the W/S H.C.G network, influences the tight-knit street gang heavily alongside Roderick Mays a/k/a O.G Maybach.

They're both key members to the Hoover Criminals and Been Paid Tray Mafia drug network. They've tried to convince the neighboring street gang to pick up their card to maximize their resources and create a bigger entity. This has been something that has floated around the streets for awhile, when speaking on the politics behind the gang.

The main reason for them not turning "Criminals" is because of their overwhelming arrogance and lone-wolf mentality. They feel as if they don't need anyone's help when that isn't necessarily the case. Other underlying reasons are unknown to the public therefore only speculation is created.
Louis Mafia, prior to his death wanted to push the idea of gang-banging a lot further. He often times made his affiliates pledge their allegiance to the network by acts of violence. This vision would later be pushed and glorified by a seasoned member known as Tyrico "Mafia Rico" Way. There's a specific type of agenda Louis wanted to push and Tyrico is what some would refer to as, the embodiment of the gang. His activeness has played a huge part in the history of their gang. Tyrico is the nephew of LaMarcus Boone, who is his mothers, brother. LaMarcus' presence in the streets definitely impacted W/S B.P.T.M. He plays a big part in pushing the gang-banging aspect of the gang.

Present day BPTM affiliates are full fledged gang members and a lot more ruthless. Their rivalries calmed down over the years but they have good ties with the Pat Nix Gangster Crips and the Lime Hood Piru members too. Who're now defunct but they dabble in tag banging from time to time still. They 94 Hoover Criminals Gang also have subsets located outside of the city. In Las Venturas they have the 112 Hoover Criminals off shoot set. They've created a gun and drug pipeline where they traffic them across city lines. Both networks commuting through each city, they dealt with guns on a lower tier. Bringing in as many as 12 guns at a time which can be considered a small amount but it was consistent. They'd also move quarter pounds of weed and a few scripts of various pills. Anything ranging from Percocets to Valium.

This tight-knit drug network from Las Venturas and the West Side of Jefferson is still their primary source of drugs and guns. Upholding their violent stature, the Jefferson neighborhood kept its handle The Murder Mids to this day. Violence catapulted once again after the death of Louis Mafia, these string of murders lead to the 2014 indictment. Which was the reason 21 members of both congregations were indicted on murder, drug trafficking, and conspiracy charges. Which caused them to have their circle more tight-knit band of gang members. Gang members of both the 94 Hoover Criminals Gang and the Been Paid Tray Mafia represent their deeply rooted gang relations by colored bandannas, gang graffiti, gang tattoos, and sport teams.

Law enforcement today are still investigating each set and documenting their culture as a whole. Anything from their tattoos to the graffiti on the walls plastered around the neighborhood. They're still active in both neighborhoods and still following the same lifestyle.

Federal Indictment Charges 21 Defendants for Violent Drug Distribution Conspiracy Operating in the Jefferson and Glen Park Area of Los Santos

Indictment Alleges Violence Including 15 Murders, and 25 Non-Fatal Shootings; “W/S 94 Lowdown Hoover Criminal Gang & W/S Been Paid Tray Mafia” Enterprise are the Third and Forth Rival Gang Prosecuted in Jefferson


L.S. Attorney’s Office
September 17th, 2014

Jefferson, Los Santos - A federal grand jury has returned an indictment charging 21 defendants for being part of the Been Paid Tray Mafia & 94 Hoover Criminal Gang Enterprise, a drug distribution conspiracy which operated for 14 years in the Jefferson section of Los Santos. The indictment alleges that members of the Been Paid Tray Mafia & 94 Hoover Criminal Gang Coalition committed acts of violence in order to fund their narcotics activities and intimidate others who would interfere with the enterprise. The indictment was returned on September 9th, 2014 and unsealed today. Thirteen defendants are in custody. Law enforcement is still searching for eight of the defendants.

The indictment was announced by United States Attorney for the District of Los Santos Kevin M. Ross; Special Agent in Charge David L. Boyd, Sr. of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives - Jefferson Field Division; Commissioner Gerald Keith of the Los Santos Police Department; and Los Santos City State’s Attorney Jessica K. Powers.

“The most important thing law enforcement officers can do to stop violence is to make clear that killers will be held accountable,” said U.S. Attorney Kevin M. Ross. “Although the only crime charged in this indictment is a drug conspiracy, the allegations include 13 murders and 21 non-fatal shootings. Conspiracy cases are a valuable tool to put violent gangs out of business.”

According to the indictment, beginning in at least early 2002, the Been Paid Tray Mafia & 94 Hoover Criminal Gang Enterprise distributed powder and crack cocaine, heroin, oxycodone and marijuana, primarily in the Jefferson Plaza Shopping Center, various other locations throughout Jefferson/Glen Park, and in the west and southeast district of Los Santos. The indictment alleges that members of the Been Paid Tray Mafia & 94 Hoover Criminal Gang Enterprise used the proceeds of their narcotics sales to purchase firearms, to enrich themselves, and to further the activities of the organization, including narcotics trafficking. Been Paid Tray Mafia & 94 Hoover Criminal Gang members allegedly used residences in and around Jefferson and Glen Park to cut and package drugs for distribution, primarily heroin, powder cocaine, and crack. Only trusted members of the Been Paid Tray Mafia & 94 Hoover Criminal Gang Enterprise were admitted to these locations while the drugs were being prepared for sale. In an effort to distinguish their narcotics, members used colored topped vials or colored the drugs with food coloring.

The indictment alleges that members of the Been Paid Tray Mafia & 94 Hoover Criminal Gang Enterprise routinely carried firearms, and committed home invasion and street robberies, and other acts of violence in furtherance of the organization’s activities, including shootings, beatings, murders, and other violence in order to intimidate others who would interfere with their narcotics trafficking. Acts of violence were also committed to discipline members within the Been Paid Tray Mafia & 94 Hoover Criminal Gang Enterprise for transgressions, real or perceived, against the conspiracy. According to the indictment, members of the Been Paid Tray Mafia & 94 Hoover Criminal Gang Enterprise used gang signs to communicate and many had tattoos reflecting their allegiance to the conspiracy.

All 21 defendants charged in the indictment.
Eleven defendants (denoted by *) also face enhanced sentences for murder. The indictment specifically alleges that: Travis Burrell was involved in the murder of three persons; Lloyd Mays was involved in the murder of three persons; Terrell was involved in the murder of three persons, Dukes, Horsey, Cherry, and Keenan Johnson were each involved in the murder of two persons; and Chase, Luster, Rice and Alewine were each involved in a single murder. Incidents of attempted murders and aggravated assaults are also alleged against these defendants and others named in the indictment. Rodgers, Seawell, Stevie James, and Lynn are alleged to have been involved in drug distribution but face no allegations of violent activities. Defendants are segregated by their affiliations(denoted by ** meaning they identify with the 94 Hoover Criminal Gang) on the indictment too.

All 21 defendants face a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years in prison and a maximum sentence of life in prison. The defendants arrested today are expected to have initial appearances in U.S. District Court in Los Santos. The defendants already in custody will be scheduled for an initial appearance at a later date.

An indictment is not a finding of guilt. An individual charged by indictment is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty at some later criminal proceedings.

Since 2013, federal prosecutors have convicted at least 35 members of three other rival drug-dealing organizations that operated in Jefferson and Glen Park: “W/S 91 Hard Time Hustler Crips,” “W/S School Yard Crips” and “W/S By Yourself Gangster Crips.”

United States Attorney Kevin M. Ross praised the ATF, Los Santos Police Department, and Los Santos City State’s Attorney’s Office for their work in the investigation and thanked the FBI, San Andreas Sheriff Department, and The Defense Attorneys Office for their assistance. They're prosecuting this Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force case.
