Two Norteño gang leaders from Salinas have been sentenced for crimes related to the organization. 47-year-old Vincent “Chente” Garcia and 27-year-old Johnny Magdaleno were arrested in 2013 following a 6-month operation that targeted the leadership of Nuestra Familia. Nearly two dozen other gang members and associates were taken into custody during Operation Snake Eyes. Garcia was sentenced to life in prison for the sale of methamphetamine and committing street terrorism. Magdaleno will serve a term of 46 years for two robberies and two attempted murders.
