Willy Valerio is co-boss of the Dominican Hard Heads. He is 29 and originally from South Bohan. He has several criminal convictions, including Grand Theft Auto in 1998, possession of Marijuana in 2001, and assault in 2005. Valerio is said to be trying to expand the gang's drug operations and is currently beating out local competition, namely The North Holland Hustlers and East Holland Drug Gang. The Dominican Hard Heads are the biggest drug gang in Algonquin, a big reason for that is Willy's drug connect from mexico.
Willy was a close associate of Luis Lopez until Luis' arrest years earlier however upon his release from prison, Luis decided to go straight and so he cut all ties with Valerio and the Northwood Dominican Drug Dealers. An interesting note is that Henrique Bardas calls him Willy Valero (evident by the subtitles in-game and by how he says it) forming an unconsistency on how his name is spelt on the police database.
