HOUSTON — A Harris County judge has granted a temporary injunction against 28 people law-enforcement officials say are known members of gangs affiliated with the Crips and the Bloods.
The Houston Chronicle reported Friday that the district attorney filed a civil suit last month against the gang members, who are suspected of selling drugs in the 700-unit Haverstock Hills apartment complex and surrounding community. The injunction bars them from entering or staying in a 57-acre "safety zone" surrounding the apartments.
The injunction prevents them from associating with other gang members. They are also prohibited from disrupting traffic or building access, harassing residents, or carrying cell phones or similar devices. Violators face a Class A misdemeanor, punishable by a year in jail and a $4,000 fine.
