Kansas Woman Accused of Coordinating L.A. Gang Activity
Cecilia Virgen-DeLeon, 31, was taken into custody about 11:15 a.m. Wednesday in Salina, a town of about 50,000 in the heart of the state, L.A. County Sheriff’s Deputy Francis Hardiman said in a phone interview outside of nearby Abilene.
The so-called secretaries of organized crime groups often use fraudulent cellphone accounts to help push information — about drug movements, hits and other matters — to shot-callers inside the jails, Hardiman said.
“In order to pass that information … they need people on the outside to do that for them,” he said.
“And that person on the outside, for the last little bit, was this young lady.”
