The Five-of-a-Kind The Hoover Crips, also known as the 52 Hoover Gangster Crips or the Young Hoggs, are a Los Angeles-based street gang that dates back to the 1970s. The gang began on the west side of Los Angeles, between Vermont and Figueroa Avenues, at 52nd and Hoover Streets. Since then, they’ve grown to many other sections of the country.

By the late 1980s, South Central Los Angeles had over a thousand active 5-Deuce Hoover gang members.

The gang is a subsection of the bigger Hoover Criminals street gang, and it’s also the only one that still associates with the Crips, wearing the Crips’ traditional blue colours alongside the Hoover Criminals’ orange. It’s possible that the Crips’ continuous affiliation is due to the fact that they share space in Los Angeles. Members are permitted to wear a cap or other item of apparel with the word “Hoover” in orange with the o’s crossed out or a “H” overlaid over an orange star on a blue background.

The 5-Deuce Hoover Crips have been involved in local activities in Stockton, Calif., Tyler, Texas, and New Jersey, according to police and media reports. They might also be found in Houston, as well as Washington, Oregon, Oklahoma, New York, and Tennessee.
