A member of the violent MS-13 gang has been arrested in Florida for brandishing an AK-47 semi-automatic rifle at motorists, police said.
Raul Garcia, 21, was nabbed Monday morning after an overnight search in Wimauma, according to Cpl. Lawrence McKinnon, a spokesman for Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office.
The “certified” MS-13 gang banger was accused of threatening passing motorists with the weapon as he stood on a street corner in shorts and no shirt, McKinnon said.
Deputies were told Garcia was holding the gun as he was yelling at drivers and jumping in front of cars to try and get them to stop, he said.
The spokesman said that after deputies were called to the scene for a report of a man with a gun, they quickly spotted the tattooed Garcia who took off into the woods.
