Ever since gaining influence in the crime world of Los Santos, the Vagos have been generally viewed with distrust and hostility from the other gangs. When Nacho first entered the scene with his crew, he was tagged as a snitch due to the fact that he gave up many high-profile names of organization leaders to the police to get out of arrests. Due to the heat he was receiving, especially from Grove Street, Nacho left town for a few weeks. When he returned, he was complacent and willing to work with Grove Street and slowly repair his reputation. He still had not earned the trust of many, but he did eventually begin to talk with Khloe Leaves on gaining trust back with other gangs.
The Arrival of Jesus Garcia
Nacho's cousin, Jesus Garcia, arrived in town in early April 2018 from Houston, Texas. Immediately, he found the state of crime in the city and the Vagos' lack of control over Jamestown aggravating. Many people, some claiming to be from a "ninja gang", were riding Sanchez dirt bikes around the South selling drugs, riding illegally, and bringing a large cop presence to Jamestown. After a conflict between the Vagos and Luca Gambino ended in Luca being gunned down, Mav Doretto came by to save Luca and get him out of the hospital. From seeing this, Jesus connected all of the gangs of Los Santos to Mav and Street Dreams and decided to wage war on both the Sanchez's in the South and Street Dreams employees. Jesus, fully backed by his cousin, rallied the rest of the active Vagos to conduct multiple drive-bys on the Street Dreams lot and shoot down all Sanchez's in the South. One of the most prominent shootings involved Jesus rolling up to the lot in a stolen cop car and shooting Khloe Leaves down from the window. Drive-bys have also occurred at the Irvine Used Car lot and Alexis Freeman's tattoo shop in Vinewood. As a result, almost the entire criminal world of Los Santos, including The Lost MC from the North, jointly agreed to blacklist the Vagos and some even enacting a "shoot on sight" policy.
The Vagos Re-invention
After the events that happened with the previous innovation of the Vagos, they returned with Arrio leading this time with a few new members and old ones coming with him, and starting new and fresh relationships with other gangs.
