5-O goes back even further than California late 80's. It's origins are a reference to an old 70's TV show called Hawaii 5-0 starring Jack Lord. The police were 5-O and eventually the show lingo caught on as hip among petty criminals in southern California.
"STOP, Hawaii 5-O!!!!"
....blah, blah, blah- small struggles, throw a few punches - handcuffs criminal and stuffs them in the back of a patrol car ....
