As the alleged "enforcer" of the Latin Kings, Raymon "King Snappy" Gaytan Jr. would be "the face of the gang," an investigator testified in federal court this morning.
Gaytan and three other alleged gang members are in federal court today in Grand Rapids for detention hearings. They were arrested during a sweep in which investigators allegedly found several firearms and rounds of ammunition in their homes.
Holland's Latin Kings branch is a sophisticated organization, according to testimony by Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms Special Agent Geoffrey Yendl.
Members attend regular meetings, pay dues and follow a manifesto adopted by other Latin Kings gangs across the country, Yendl said.
They also follow a hierarchy system in which the enforcer relates information from the gangs members to a president and vice president, he said.
Gaytan is one of a handful of men arrested during last week's sweep.
