Tiny Loco Sureño gang member caught with sawed-off shotgun

03:41 |


A parolee and known gang member was arrested when officers searched his home and found a loaded sawed-off shotgun hidden under his bed. The 22-year-old was taken into custody Sunday after a routine parole check at his home in the 400 block of West Stanislaus Street turned increasingly suspicious, Assistant Police Chief Rusty Stivers said. Officers knocked on Alfredo Ayala Jr.’s door around 9:30 p.m. and were led inside by his father. When they entered his room, officers found Ayala in the company of two Tiny Loco Sureño gang members. As called for under the conditions of his parole, Ayala is not allowed to associate with other gang members, Stivers said. The officers did an initial search of Ayala’s bedroom and discovered a box of shotgun shells stored in an adjacent bathroom. Stivers said they went back through the room more thoroughly and found the illegally modified shotgun tucked away under Ayala’s bed. Asked why he had it, Ayala said he had no idea it was under there. His two companions also denied any knowledge of the gun, Stivers said. Ayala was arrested on suspicion of having a concealed weapon, being a felon in possession of a firearm, participating in a criminal street gang and other charges. He was booked into the Kings County Jail with his bail set at $20,000. “In the last two months, this is the third sawed-off shotgun we have seized from the Sureño street gang,” Stivers said. “Little by little, we are taking the illegal weapons off the street from people who should not have them. If anybody sees any good reason why a gang member should have a sawed-off shotgun, I’d sure like to know.” Stivers praised the department’s good working relationship with the Hanford Parole Office, saying 24-hour access to a parole agent has paid “dividends” for the Avenal Police Department.
