Crimes Gangs May Commit
Consequences

Gangs may--
  • Sell drugs
  • Extort businesses
  • Burglarize homes
  • Rob people
  • Threaten others
  • Steal cars

Gangs may also: intentionally vandalize property (abandoned homes, occupied homes, local businesses), leaving graffiti behind to "advertise" their gang or leave a "trademark."

Bottom line: Committing any of the above crimes is a felony and could earn you time in a juvenile detention center. Not fun.
