No Progress on Clearing Gang-run Homeless Encampment
On April 17, ABC News reported that the controversial homeless encampment on Berendo Street in Los Feliz, would be cleaned up “next week,” according to CD 4 Councilmember Nithya Raman. However nearby residents weren’t holding out much hope that Raman will be able to rid the community of the gang and its drug sales. And as of this newsletter, the encampment has not been cleaned. LAPD’s senior lead officer in charge of the case confirmed to Eyewitness News that the Berendo Street camp is run by a notorious street gang. Police officers have confiscated handguns, narcotics and large amounts of money at the encampment.
