Culebras have a long-standing rivalry with the Los Halcones. The Culebras get their military grade weapons from the Bratva. In 2008, the Culebras ran the Glades. The vigilante Isaac Stanzler beat a Culebra member to death using brass knuckles. The Culebra gang captured him and tortured him for months as revenge for the death of the drug dealer he killed. Isaac managed to escape. In 2014, Isaac Stanzler massacred most members of the Culebras and took Emilio "Paco" Ortega.
