Nacogdoches man gets probation for gang violence

Posted: Updated:
NACOGDOCHES COUNTY, TX (KTRE) -

A Nacogdoches man receives five years deferred probation and is ordered to pay a 25-hundred dollar fine on charges of engaging in organized criminal activity.

Miguel Barrueta-Colin, 19, was arrested in March by the Nacogdoches sheriff's office, along with four others for what was reported to be a drive-by shooting.

Sheriff Thomas Kerss said two more arrests were made a day later.

Abraham Morua Juarez, 18, Eduardo Colin, 17, Jonathan Diaz, 17, and Noah Morua Juarez, 20 were also charged with engaging in organized crime, a first-degree felony.

According to the report, the Sheriff's Office received a call of a drive-by shooting. Witnesses told deputies that a vehicle, believed to have occupied the offenders, fled the scene. The vehicle was matched to a traffic stop a little while later on CR 2863 and the loop.

A deputy attempted to stop the vehicle, when a passenger on the driver's side began to flee on foot, said Thomas Kerss.

The deputy observed that a broom had been impaled on the driver side door and windows had been knocked out, said Kerss.

Kerss also said that another street gang, the Latin Kings, had reported that they were at a club in Nacogdoches County and had an altercation with another alleged street gang.

The gang who reported the activity then went to a residence on CR 521 to confront the other group of people who, Kerss said, " they had problems with."

Kerss says that's when about 5 members of the group accosted the Kings with aluminum baseball bats.

Neighbors also reportedly heard gunshots.

Barrueta-Colin was sentenced to five years of deferred probation and ordered to pay a 25-hundred dollar fine for the first count of engaging in organized criminal activity. He also received five years of deferred probation for the second count of engaging in organized criminal activity. The sentences will run concurrently.

Juarez was sentenced to ten years of deferred probation on Monday.
