The Compton Varrio Alondra (CVA), also known as the Compton Varrio Alondra 13 (CVA13) or simply Alondra 13 (A13) are primarily, but not exclusively, a Mexican-American criminal street gang based on the West Side of Compton, California. Their name is derived from Alondra Blvd, a neighborhood street located near Central Ave.
The Compton Varrio Alondra shares parts of their barrio with the Tragniew Park Compton Crips, an African-American street gang who mainly feud with the Campanella Park Pirus. The Compton Varrio Alondra is composed of several smaller cliques known as the Baby Gangsters (BGS), Pee Wees (PWS), Tiny Locos (TLS), Locos (LS) and the Malditos (MDS).
Despite, being geographically on the West Side of Compton, they claim South Side (a reference to Southern California). This is to distinguish themselves from Hispanic gangs in Northern California, especially Norteños who are mortal enemies of Sureños.
Allies & Rivals
The Compton Varrio Alondra are allied with the Mexican-Mafia, a prison criminal organization. They mainly war with other Hispanic gangs on the West Side, such as the Compton Varrio 155, one of their oldest enemies. Other rivals are the Compton Varrio Tortilla Flats, and the Compton Varrio 70s.
