MESA – Mesa Police arrested three members of the “Savage Murder Crime Family 451z” gang on November 18th 2020. Gustavo Trevino, Orlando Reyes, and Albert Carrillo were all arrested for multiple charges stemming from a several months long investigation.
According to the Mesa Police Department, in August 2020, Mesa Detectives saw public photographic evidence on Trevino’s social media pages which indicated that he might be in possession of firearms. Because Trevino is a prohibited possessor, an investigation was opened which led to a search warrant that provided detectives with thousands of pages of Trevino’s conversations. The conversations pointed to Trevino being a high-ranking gang member of the gang “Savage Murder Crime Family 451z”.
The search warrant led to the discovery of a plot to commit armed robbery and murder.
Undercover detectives made contact with Trevino and Reyes, who made numerous statements them including Trevino’s plan to murder two individuals and his desire to commit armed robbery and murder for hire. A murder for hire plan was conceived that involved Trevino and Reyes committing an armed robbery in exchange for the murder of the two people Trevino wanted to kill.
