Zancudo Ave Mob is an american crime organization established in Sandy Shores in the early 2000s, founded by Frank "Gringo" Murphy, Z.A.M. provides a connection for Central and South american cocaine producers and smugglers to distribute their products throughout the state of San Andreas, with a focus on Sandy Shore and the Los Santos County.
It all started in the warm summer of '04. For a long time Murphy drove his Freightliner truck back and forth and through and out of the state, with the years he started making some connections down south, specifically with a Mexican criminal group in El Paso which, in 2004, would start to sell him stolen goods for smuggling back to Los Santos, this meant quick money for Murphy, aswell as the nickname of "Gringo", or "El Gringo" by his hispanic partners, due to his light eyes and caucasian complexion.
As time passed by, Murphy switched from stolen goods to medium quantities of drugs, establishing deeper and stronger connections with the smuggling ring around El Paso and it's connection with Mexican and South American cartels, which led to an even more profitable deal: To set up a drug distribution chain through the country-side of San Andreas, a rather dry market since drugs were mostly transported straight to the main cities, and no one knew the small towns and counties of San Andreas as well as Murphy.

The business was a success focusing specially in the County of Los Santos and Sandy Shores, Murphy, with the help of a couple of trust-worthy friends alongside a couple of not so trust-worthy, yet useful, crackheads, the distribution chain was up and working like a charm, so Gringo decided he would delegate driving the smuggling trucks himself to concentrate in leading what it turned to be a whole new crime organization in the state of San Andreas, which, as time passed, expanded on to different activities such as loan sharking, theft, hijacking and extortion, amongst others.
Lately, Murphy decided to keep a low profile and stay in the shadows after several FIB raids on small dealers throughout the county that could have given a lead on his identity, since then, the Zancudo Ave Mob has been primarily guided by their Underboss, James Walker, the only person to maintain regular contact with Murphy.
