Recommended Posts

Carson Avenue Ballas ( AKA Front Yard Ballas)






The Ballas are an African-American street gang based in Los Santos. Most of their territory can be found in the poorer/run-down neighborhoods to the far east of the city. They are involved in gangbanging, gang warfare, street violence, prostitution, gang-related homicide, murder, drug trafficking/manufacturing (especially the crack cocaine trade), gun-running/arms trafficking, vandalism, and degeneracy. They are easily identifiable by wearing purple clothing as their gang color.

The Ballas have been around since the 1970s Specific information regarding where or how they formed is unknown. However, it is likely that the Ballas evolved either from Glen Park or Jefferson since Idlewood and possibly Willowfield were controlled by the Grove Street Families prior to 1987 and since East Los Santos was split between the Grove Street Families and the Vagos prior to 1992. The Ballas have a history of a traditional, intense, and bloody rivalry with the Grove Street Families. Specifically when the gang war started is unknown, but the rivalry between the two gangs was in full swing as early as 1987. Prior to 1992, the Ballas used to control the area of Temple - which is under control of the Temple Drive Families in 1992. The Ballas became major influential players in the crack-cocaine using the tactic of selling drugs in the enemies turf to weaken the gang and then take over. Remained dominant until the late 1990’s until the police wiped out Front yard Ballas in a huge gang sting. Joey being kicked out of Vagos and co operating with the Ballas on grove street. They decided to let him run his own set. He named this gang Carson Avenue Ballas AKA Front yard ballas. Despite their rivalry with the Los Santos Vagos on the streets, influential members from the Ballas and the Vagos maintain a business partnership for the interest of money and drugs And protection of turf.

News and Media:

On January 31, 1992, Thomas murdered a man called Carlos Adkins in an apartment in Idlewood by shooting him repeatedly to death.

Over a year later on the night of February 22, 1993, about 11 p.m., Los santos Police Officer Kevin Michael Burrell, 29 and Reserve Officer James Wayne MacDonald, 24 made a routine traffic stop in Idlewood at the Pizza stack, on a red 1992 Chevrolet 454 pickup truck being driven by Thomas. As the officers exited their patrol car and approached the pickup truck, Thomas exited his vehicle and opened fire on both officers. Both officers were knocked down to the ground by bullet wounds to their limbs. According to trial testimony, Thomas shot at their heads execution-style. Both officers were wearing bulletproof vests and were found lying face down near their patrol car with their guns holstered. There were nine spent nine-millimeter shell casings in front of the patrol car. Burrell died of multiple gunshot wounds to the arm, face, left foot, and head. MacDonald was also shot four times, in his left armpit, middle back, upper back, and behind the right ear, and died of a gunshot wound to the chest. After the shootings Thomas returned to his truck and drove away. Ballas are always depicted as very violent through the media known for their crimes like extortion, Arms smuggling and Crack cocaine distributing.


Car wash:

The car wash is used by the Ballas as a hangout spot and where they spend a lot of free time and a main hub for drug trafficking, The gang members realized it would appear less suspicious standing around at a car wash selling drugs then standing on the corner. They also chose this spot because of the view it gives over the train tracks allowing them to see what is happening on the other side of the train tracks. This is conveniently located so that Ballas members can run from police on foot or enemies in case of ambush.




Ballin’ Herr Kutz Barber shop:

Owned by the Ballas since the late 1980s, This is the location where all of the illegal money that gets laundered goes through. They bring cash into the store, flip it into Legal revenue and use the cash to acquire things like houses and cars. This is a staple in the Ballas gang. Rumors are they also sell guns and crack cocaine in the hours that the barber shop is closed. This is another location they may be spotted hanging out. 







Current situation:

The Ballas control almost the entire community of Davis. Carson avenue is a particular hot spot for activity as well as Davis Avenue, Grove street, Brouge Avenue and Covenant Avenue in the neighborhood. The Ballas also have a Crack Cocaine cooking and packing business set up in an abandoned sawmill to the southwest of Paleto Bay.

Ballas will often get into violent confrontations upon spotting a families member, Azteca, or Vagos gang member. Ballas love to sell crack cocaine by their warehouse and on the corners of the streets. We are either out robbing stores or making drugs specifically crack cocaine. Can be spotted in groups in the hood or on corners in their neighborhoods selling drugs or even acting shady. Ballas love to throw parties and smoke marijuana.  We can sometimes be seen stealing enemy vehicles or questioning people around their neighborhood who are not wearing Ballas colors.

Every faction member is expected to adhere to all faction rules and Eclipse RP server rules at all times. Violating Eclipse RP server rules may result in removal from the faction on an OOC level.


If a faction member is punished by an Eclipse RP server admin they're required to report it to the Seville Boulevard Families leader with their explanation of the events and how they plan to avoid further issues.
