In 2008 a law enforcement operation called “Operation Killen Court” specifically targeted the Compton Gang. Authorities would state that the Mob Piru clique would be responsible for acts of violence and were the ring leaders in the area for the underground gun trade.

The investigation started on Chirstmas Eve in 2007 and would be responsible for the arrest of 24 Mob Piru members and 18 gun seizures.

The reason for the arrest was due to the killing of Kyutza Joan Herrera in Lynwood, authorities would pin this murder on 3 Mob Piru gang members. Herrera was a civilian and not affiliated to any gang. Due to this killing the State Attorney General’s office was involved to take down the gang.

Law enforcement would use wire taps, and electronic surveillance to monitor the gang’s activities. They would observe the gangs talking about buying and selling guns and well as murders that they committed.

They even state they were able to stop a shootout between the Mob Piru and the Insane Crips of Long Beach.
