MCSO Monitoring Rise of Simon City Royals Gang

Mobile County Sheriff’s Office say they’re now seeing more gang members from Simon City Royals in jail.

The gang started in Chicago in the 1950s, and has spread throughout the US. However in the past few years, investigators have seen a build up of members in the South. It is one of the largest known street gangs in Jackson County Mississippi

Mobile County Sheriff’s Deputies say members have been steadily trickling across state line, and have been booked for burglaries, thefts, and drug crime. They are currently tracking known members on the streets and in jail. Deputies also hope through education they can prevent young people from joining.
