The MS-13 Gang is on a Rampage at a Forest Lane Apartment Complex. No Golf Cart Is Safe.

No golf cart is safe.
The Indigo on Forest is, per its website, a wonderful community located in "prestigious North Dallas" that still manages to offer apartments at the low, low price of $440 per month.

It would be almost idyllic if it weren't for the contingent of MS-13, a.k.a. Mara Salvatrucha, a.k.a. the brutal Latin American gang founded in L.A.'s Salvadoran neighborhoods in the 80s before spreading throughout the United States and Central America. The gang, residents tell police, is active in the complex, as is a rival gang. (More than 500 DPD police reports have been filed at the property since 2005 for robbery, assault, theft, burglary, criminal mischief, you name it, but none explicitly tied to gangs).

On the evening of September 27, police were called to the complex to investigate a hangup 911 call. A security guard with Statewide Patrol showed up in his golf cart to help officers find the apartment the call had come from.

The police report from the incident doesn't mention if they found who had made the call. It does, however, tell what happened to the golf cart: While the security guard was away, a group of Hispanic men smashed the hell out of it with baseball bats then tore out the wiring from the undercarriage.

Neighbors told police that the men with the baseball bats were members of MS-13 who had been making trouble in the complex for a while. An Indigo representative said at the time she was unaware of the golf cart incident or the gang presence.

The security guard's golf cart wasn't the last victim. Early Thursday morning, someone destroyed two more golf carts, these belonging to Indigo. There are no reports as yet of the violence escalating to include scooters or Smart Cars, but it's probably only a matter of time.

like the leftist Democrats love to say:

 

its better to have a 100 ms-13 gang members in the city than to have one "innocent" illegal deported

shhhhh

After reading this report I have found a lot of false information actually all of the information on this reports is FALSE. Unlike the reporter who wrote this article I have researched all police reports and found nothing for Indigo on Forest on September 27, 2012. When I say nothing I am referring to the property in a whole, for any calls outgoing placed to Dallas Police Department for (robbery, assault, theft, burglary, criminal mischief). I feel as a current resident of the Indigo on Forest this is a mulish attack on the property and management. There NO gangs on this property. As you enter in the Indigo on Forest you will notice they have SECURITY CAMERAS, WORKING GATES and 24HR Security. This property has been in the remolding process for the past 2 years and is a great affordable place to live. I would suggest the reporter get all the fact before he write an uneducated report.

I remember when the Indigo was built. It was a great complex and the neighborhood was decent. But, as the neighborhood went downhill they could not keep the apartments full without relaxing their standards. Now the Indigo, along with all of the other apartments in that part of town are pits of crime and despair.

This is what happens when you start letting 10 year olds in your gang.

And that's why you need to be extra vigilant when looking for a new place to live. Prestigious North Dallas? Snort.

Living in $440-a-month apartments and smashing golf carts with baseball bats. Something tells me Al Pacino ain't gonna be playing one of these guys in the movies anytime soon. Thug fail.

Go ahead and make light of a violent gang terrorizing a neighborhood and threatening violence against security.  After all, only golf carts and scooters are at risk, right?  In fact, I suggest you investigate by volunteering to patrol the area after dark.    

 

I understand you are going for a snarky, hipster vibe here.  But this article nothing more than childish.

 @shhhhh I hope you're being sarcastic... there are plenty of gangs in and around that complex. There are tons of burglaries all over that place. Plenty of robberies, and UUMVs. The management is putting forth an effort to clean the place up, but when you have people partying in unoccupied apartments, and shootings all of the time on forest/audelia, then you gotta put up with aholes busting up your golf carts, it might take a long ass time. Do yourself a favor, do not move there, or anywhere near there.
