TAMPA, Fla. -- Every known leader of the Latin Kings gang in Florida was taken off the street when law enforcement raided a rented club where high-level members were meeting, authorities said Monday.

The Sunday afternoon raid netted the arrests of 39 alleged gang leaders on charges of conspiracy to commit racketeering, taking a huge chunk out of the highly organized structure of a statewide criminal enterprise, Hillsborough County Sheriff David Gee said.

The "extremely violent" gang has been involved in major crimes ranging from drug dealing to attempted murder, Gee said. Prosecutors say more charges could result from the arrests, which occurred without violence.

Those arrested range in age from 16 to 39 and listed addresses that included Tampa, New Port Richey, Miami, Clearwater, St. Petersburg and Deltona, according to the sheriff's office. All appeared in court Monday morning where high bonds were set, State Attorney Mark Ober said.

Among them was the alleged statewide leader of the Latin Kings, Samuel David Alvarado, 29, also known as "King Sam," who lives in Lake Worth, the sheriff's office said. He was being held without bond, according to jail records, which did not say if he had a lawyer.

The Tampa meeting, attended by all the so-called "crowns" in the state, was called to discuss leadership issues after one of the gang's leaders was severely beaten by other high-ranking members in May, Gee said.

The Latin Kings rented the Caribbean American Club in south Tampa for what they described as a party. The venue is often rented out for events, and members of the club didn't know the real purpose of Sunday's meeting, Gee said.

Around 100 local officers and federal agents participated in the raid. Ten guns, five ammunition magazines and a small amount of marijuana and cocaine also were seized.

An undercover deputy said it's hard to tell where and how many people are affiliated with the Latin Kings statewide, but there are around 70 members in the Tampa area alone. He appeared at a news conference with his face covered to protect his identity.

Gee said the gang has been active in the area for at least 20 years and may have ties to chapters in New York and Chicago. The Chicago Crime Commission now estimates that there are more than 20,000 Latin Kings in the Chicago area alone.

Sunday's raid in Tampa was the culmination of a 14-month investigation that also included Tampa police, the FBI, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, Immigration and Customs Enforcement and local prosecutors.

"We have been inside this organization for well over a year, following many of their moves throughout the state," Gee said.

why do n*ggas get happy when crime goes down in their city? like they had something to do with it. If you a n*gga from Tampa I aint gonna respect u more over a n*gga from Miami or vice versa. Yall act like bi*ch n*ggas dont live in the hood.

and another thing,
stop acting like the hood is something natural for us (blacks, latinos). Like thats where we're supposed to be. Dont get so attached to the idea of the hood. Back in the day we were kings right?

Dont get trapped in that mentality, that sh*t is NO joke.
