      - criminals and gang members really pay attention to laws/rules, don't they?

      FREED TRIO RIGHT BACK IN JAIL
      MEN ALLEGEDLY VIOLATED BAIL TERMS THAT PROHIBITED THEM FROM SEEING EACH OTHER

      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      Three alleged gang members only made it as far as the Calgary Remand parking lot
      minutes after being released before city cops arrested them again.

      Vinh Le, 21, Henry Nguyen, 18 and Hieu Nguyen, 21, were arrested Thursday night
      -- the same day the men were granted bail in provincial court -- for allegedly breaching
      conditions of their release.

      According to cops, the men were in violation of release conditions that prohibited
      them from associating with one another.

      Cops said Vinh Le was using a cell phone which was a breach of a previous court
      order in relation to drug-related charges he faces that are still before the courts.

      Staff Sgt. Terry Larson of the community response team, said he was disappointed
      to learn three alleged gang members accused of weapons-related offences received
      bail in the first place.

      "The police service is working on interrupting, suppressing and dismantling
      gang activity and stopping the violence they are perpetrating and when we succeed
      and they get out, it just makes it that much harder," he said. "But it
      is the job of police to investigate, gather evidence, bring it before the courts
      and testify -- that is our part.

      "The rest is up to the judicial process and other members of that process."

      The three men face weapons charges after police made arrests July 12. Cops said
      they seized two loaded semi-automatic pistols.

      Le was also charged with two counts of failing to comply, and Hieu Nguyen, who was
      at the time of arrest under a court order prohibiting him to possess firearms, was
      charged with three other firearms offences.

      Le is the brother of Dat Le, a violent gang member executed, along with Chuong (David)
      Tran, 21, by a lone gunman at a northeast gas station last Saturday afternoon.

      Larson said he was pleased to hear the men were back in custody until their next
      court appearance which is set for July 25.
