The Dog Pound Gang (DPG) is said to be the “largest and most impactful” criminal organization in the history of Fresno, CA. The gang has been in operation for the past decade. In the past week and change, there have been 24 shootings in Fresno, half of which were allegedly committed by the DPG.
However, the authorities were more interested in the gang in relation to human trafficking. It was for this reason, that the the top brass of the DPG was arrested, yesterday. A total of 29 members, many of whom are DPG leaders, were busted across the city, in “Operation Dog Track.” “Although we knew the Dog Pound Gang was extremely violent, we truly did not understand how ruthless they really are and how sophisticated their operations until well into the investigation,” said Chief Jerry Dyer. “We’ve never been able to reach the top echelon of the DPG. We’ve never been able to reach the leadership of DPG.”
