Eight Sureno gang members busted during Operation Groundhog in Watsonville already convicted, four sent to state prison - San Jose Mercury News: "Four of the gang members arrested during Operation Groundhog, a year-long Watsonville police investigation into a violent Sureno street gang, have been sentenced to state prison, District Attorney Bob Lee said Monday.
Another four have been convicted of charges and sentenced to local jail time or probation, according to Lee.
In total, 45 suspected Poorside gang members were arrested during the probe and two others are wanted, according to Watsonville police.
Gang investigators said they targeted Poorsiders after seeing an increasing number of violent acts linked to the gang, believed to be the largest Sureno gang in Watsonville with about 200 members. Watsonville Police Chief Manny Solano said the gang is responsible for at least 10 violent incidents - drive-by shootings, assaults, armed robberies and stabbings - in the past year.
'Gangs are the No. 1 problem we have in this county,' Lee said."
