    Man flashes gang signs at the wrong car
    By DEANNA BOYD
    Star-Telegram Staff Writer
    FORT WORTH -- Gangsters take heed: Throwing gang signs could result in authorities throwing the book at you.

    An 18-year-old Fort Worth man found himself in a world of trouble Wednesday night when he flashed gang signs at a passing car, only to find that its occupants were undercover gang officers.

    The incident occurred about 10 p.m. as the two officers, in an unmarked car, passed a home in the 3800 block of North Terry Street -- a known hangout of a north side gang.

    The officers called for officers in marked units to detain the teen for disorderly conduct/gesture, said Lt. Dean Sullivan, a police spokesman.

    But that wasn't the teen's only mistake, police said.

    As officers patted the teen down, they found a bottle of what appeared to be Xanax inside his pocket. The teen could not explain why he had the pills, Sullivan said.

    Then, when officers asked for his identification, the teen told them it was in his bedroom and led them into the home. There, on a table, officers spotted a clear plastic baggie with what they believed was cocaine inside, Sullivan said.

    Based on the discovery, narcotics officers were called and obtained a search warrant for the home. They uncovered a cache of weapons, including an Uzi, an AR-15, a .44-caliber Magnum pistol, a 12-gauge shotgun and other handguns. Officers also found approximately 3.6 kilos of suspected cocaine, a pound of what appeared to be marijuana and about $65,000 in cash, Sullivan said.

    "In addition to that, there were six wrappings from kilos of cocaine that they had already apparently opened and sold, we presume, or distributed," Lt. Robert Rangel said.

    The 18-year-old, identified as Alex R. Perez Jr., and his 17-year-old brother, Paul A. Perez, were arrested on suspicion of drug and weapons violations.

    Agents from the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and Immigration and Customs Enforcement are assisting in the investigation.

    Authorities will seek federal charges against the 18-year-old and state charges against his brother.

    "It was a bad career move and lousy timing for the gang member," Rangel said.

    Nobody can accuse any gang member of being the sharpest tack, these included.

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion

    The classic idiot strikes again

    Just because your sign off after you're shift is done, doesn't mean that it's over and put blinders on. You're a cop 24/7 wether you like it or not. If thats something you can't handle, you should find a new line of work!

    Thats what I was thinking. "No officer I don't have any ID on me but I will give you my Name, DOB, and SS#"

    Dumbasses.
    Being the best is not what always counts. What counts is always trying your best.

    Remember who you are, and where you came from. That way you never get a big head.


    May those that lost their lives in 9-11 RIP, for the things you did not many could do. You left so many behind so that you could save so few. For now we stand strong as one, and will not look back till the fight is done. (me)

    It was good faith entrance to the premise/officer safety, and plain view, then a search warrant based on plain view. Their intent was not to go inside the home looking for drugs/contraband.

    I've heard that some gang wannabes tried flashing signs at some narcotics agents somewhere near-ish to me and got some grief for their troubles. I'm sure they wanted to call the waaaambulance.

    I guess this is what they mean when they say "one thing led to another".
