Who Owns What?

First a former McAllen mayor owns a location housing a suspected illegal gambling joint. Now, a local police chief comes up as the owner of a security firm that the operator of the recently raided casino says belongs to him.

As the Brownsville Herald's Emma Perez-Treviño uncovers:

Public records show that Los Fresnos Police Chief James Harris III owns Coastal Security & Protection in North Brownsville, but Goldmine arcade operator Eduardo Rene Peña claims he owns it as well.

The chief tells NewsChannel 5 his officers weren't providing information to the arcade operators.

Don't forget -- Cameron County DA Armando Villalobos says that after the anti-gambling task force raid, Peña claimed he's under protection from local law enforcement honchos. No wonder the district attorney wants the FBI to investigate.

Mary Rose Cardenas, millionaress and trustee on the utb board of "trustees", is a loyal customer at this goldmine. Not to mention many top administrators at the BISD. The fact that many politicians know or protect or fell over thmselves to bail out this Pena couple should say something about the local community in camaroon (sic) county. Perhaps eddie pena was right about boasting to having local cops and other offficials in his back pocket! I hope that the d.a. and the fbi get to the bottom of this organized crime group.

I'm curious; how do you know who patronized this establishment? Did you see them there? Do you have some kind of documentation that puts them there? If so, I'd love to see it.

I have no documentation that I go to the toilet either, but I was there in an undercover capacity. I expected her to be BEFORE I arrived.(I have good sources) She did not disappoint either. I post only the truth Mack, nada mas. Like I said before , we cops know everything. We know when the high and mighty have bad or good, so they should " be good for goodness sakes " ! We also know who's in the proverbial closet and when "they" come out. You'd be surprised ! I hold nothing back, and I also cross that thin blue wall of silence from time to time ! Trust me !

Direct knowledge is good. I just worry about people passing along rumor as fact. Too often people will claim "everyone knows" something when they don't have any source other than rumors. I'm not accusing you of that, Pugsley; I just want to make sure there's a factual basis for your statement, which you have supplied.
