Gonzalez said without the help of Gangscope, a gang database the police department has been using for years, these convictions might've not happened.
"These individuals were in that gang database and we were able to identify them,â€� Chief Gonzalez said. â€œOnce we identified one, we identified all of them."
"San Juan police helped arson investigators identify Guerrero through the use of Gangscope, their gang member database, which suggests Guerrero might be a documented gang member."
"Police were able to track down the suspects and get valuable information on their past, by using this website called Gang Scope. It gives police information on gang members characteristics, personal details and history.
Through this, police have also identified two more suspects, David "Prophet Enriquez, 32, and Robert Garcia, 29. There is a third suspect on the loose as well, but police have not yet identified his real name. "
"Investigators continued to follow promising leads developed by Gangscope, a database software used to gather information and keep track of gang members in the city, Gonzalez said.
"That's how we identified the persons of interest that we're going to try to locate," he said. "That database has helped us tremendously in this investigation.""
