Agents Arrest Cocaine Dealers, Still Searching for Latin Kings Member

Posted:

Federal agents had been tracking a Belizean drug gang that was funneling cocaine to Chicago and Evanston. Earlier this month they made a number of arrests, but Angel Serrano gave them the slip.

Serrano is a suspected drug dealer, but not a member of the Belizean bloods; he is actually a member of the Latin Kings street gang here in Chicago.

According to the criminal complaint, the Belizean Bloods supplied Serrano with crack cocaine on several occasions. Serrano then resold the drugs on behalf of the Latin Kings.

The charges against Serrano and the two dozen members and associates of the Belizean Bloods were the result of two investigations: Operation Blood Hound and Operation Black Orchid.

It began in 2009, with an investigation of passport fraud by some Belizean nationals, and at the same time the FBI, Chicago Police and Evanston Police were focusing on suspected drug trafficking by the Belizean Bloods. This was a pretty widespread operation with some pretty dangerous individuals and a drug distribution route for the Belizean Bloods that included not just Illinois, but numerous other states from New York to California.

Last month, numerous individuals were arrested in a sweep that interrupted an alleged plot to rob a purported 50 kilograms of cocaine from a stash house in Berwyn. Some of those involved had talked of killing three Mexican nationals, if necessary, when they went to what was actually a fake stash house set up by the feds.

But in this sweep, Angel Serrano managed to disappear before agents could find him.

Serrano could be anywhere, but his last known address was in the 3500 block of North Lake Shore Drive. He has a lot of connections in the Chicago area and so we believe there's a good chance he could still be in the area.

Here's is what the FBI says Angel Serrano looks like:

  • He is described as an Hispanic male.
  • 25 years old, 5'9", and weighing about 190 pounds.
  • He has black hair, brown eyes and often goes by the name "Leo."
  • He has numerous tattoos, including five dots on the fingers of his left hand, and the word "Infamous" on his right forearm.

He is considered armed and dangerous, if you see him call police.
