VICTORVILLE, Calif. – Twenty potentially dangerous suspects were arrested after an investigation into Five Time Hometown Crips in the City of Victorville.
The Victorville Police Department’s Gang Enforcement Team investigated the San Bernardino based criminal street gang, based in San Bernardino from January to March 2018.

Through investigation, several more Five Time Hometown Crips gang members living in the City of Victorville were identified. In addition, they learned that there was a Five Time Hometown Crips firearms and narcotics trafficking ring based in Victorville; with ties to the San Bernardino area. These criminal street gang members, according to authorities, are responsible for multiple murders in the high desert and were a major source of firearms and narcotics supplied in the City of Victorville.
