Investigation and detention
The investigation was initiated in the month of March and has concluded with the discovery of the three chapters of the band that in turn would integrate the so-called "Kingdom of Castilla y León", playing J.M.T.S. the rank of greater hierarchy. In addition to being the latter the head of the Chapter of Burgos, as a subordinate group of the All-Powerful Latin Kings Nation.
It would be an organization with a pyramidal structure and a strict hierarchy, with established norms and codes of conduct, whose transgression involves disciplinary measures ranging from the expulsion of the band to physical punishments of the offenders.
The purpose of its implementation is to mark "their territory" and defend it against the intrusion of other Latin bands, such as Ñetas, Trinitarios or Blood 901, among others, which they consider as enemies, through the use of violence, often with machetes or large knives. Some of these young people have numerous antecedents, mainly by threats, aggressions and injuries produced in tumultuarias fights or armed confrontations with other Latin bands, and some crime against the property.
The twelve detainees have been placed at the disposal of the Court of Instruction number four of Burgos, which has decreed the recess in custody of five of them for belonging to a criminal organization and the rest have been released with charges.
