Officers Deliver Man Accused of Extortion

From Times staff reports

A 25-year-old suspected gang member has been extradited to Anaheim to face charges of extortion and criminal street gang activity, police said Friday.

Martin Gomez was arrested last week in El Paso, Texas, by Anaheim’s gang detail.

Gomez and eight other members of a local gang assaulted one of their relatives and extorted more than $400 from them on two occasions, said Anaheim Police Sgt. Rick Martinez.
