BEAVER CREEK, Colorado ” If members of the gang Latin Kings are present in the Vail Valley, they’ve made their mark at the Tarnes apartment complex in Beaver Creek, Colorado.

The complex manager showed deputies the damage caused on March 2, which included a trash storage area being spray-painted with the tags, “Eagle County,” “305,” “F— 503,” along with a Latin Kings crown. A hole was also kicked next to a pay phone and an apartment door was kicked in. The property manager said that damage came just a week after the complex’s vending machines were vandalized.

There are no solid leads in the case, but deputies suspect that “305” refers to the area code in South Florida.
