Here are some of the photos of the guests who attended the event! 

House where sexual assault allegedly took place 

An arrest warrant has been put out for a Spring man who investigators say sexually assaulted a young girl his son once fancied in elementary school.

Harris County court records show once in custody 37 year old Derwin Demonise Toliver will be charged with two counts of sexual assault of a child under 17 years old.  

According to the probable cause Toliver’s son once tried to date the now 15 year old female when she was in the fifth grade.  
But that young girl’s parents told Toliver to keep his son away from their daughter.

However, investigators say Toliver later started texting and meeting the young girl on her bus stop while bringing her breakfast.  

Harris County deputies say he eventually took her to his home on Brookgate Drive where he sexually assaulted her. 

A warrant has been issued for Toliver’s arrest by the Harris County Sheriff’s office! 

Alejandro Guzman

Two people from Houston have been arrested in Tulsa, Oklahoma after a murder and crime spree there.

Police say they have 20 year old Alejandro Guzman and 18 year old Jennifer Lopez charged with two others in connection with the murder of Wilmer Flores.

Jennifer Lopez

Police say it happened earlier this month in Mohawk Park in Tulsa. 

Investigators say Guzman, Lopez, and the other suspects were accused of kidnapping and eventually killing Flores.
Police say the motive: Flores’ brother stole Guzman’s truck and in retaliation they kidnapped and killed him because they could not find the brother who stole their truck.

All of the four people arrested are being held in jail in Tulsa.

Sources say the duo from Houston may also be wanted for crimes here including the truck in question they were in.

Police say that vehicle was stolen from Houston.

From Tulsa Police:

On 10-12-2016 at 5:05 PM Tulsa Police received a call to Mohawk Park at 5701 E 36 SN in reference to a body found along the side of Cherokee Drive inside Mohawk Park.  Upon arrival first responders find a Hispanic male approximately 30 years of age shot and killed.


The investigation revealed that several people in the park heard gunshots just prior to finding the body.  The body was clad in a work shirt that had a first name on the pocket.  We have not positively identified the male as of yet, however we are confident that we will make an identification soon.


The investigation is related to the robbery on 10-11-2016 at Shoreline apartments where a Hispanic male was shot by a Hispanic male with a tattoo on his face.  On 10-12-2016 at 12:35 PM Tulsa Police receive a call of a disturbance at the Vapor store at 1107 S Harvard.  It is relayed that a black Ford Raptor is stolen and the victims are giving chase.  Police arrive and no one is there to make a report.  A caller calls back  and tells police that he was shot and that he is following the Raptor at 2100 S Garnett.  The phone number that makes the call at 1107 S Harvard and the 2100 S Garnett calls are the same.  The caller at 2100 S Garnett gave a location of the truck thief’s apartment near 2100 S Garnett.


Shortly after this call another call to Tulsa Police comes in and names the suspect in the stolen Raptor as Elvin Flores.  This caller claims he is going to the hospital because he has been shot but will not stop for EMSA or the police.  Tulsa Police has no record that this person ever made it to the hospital.


At 1:47 PM Tulsa Police received a burglary call from a homeowner in the 1300 block of E 51 PN.  The homeowner was angry and upset and listed items stolen from him were transported in a black Ford Raptor truck.  The officer taking this report is one of the officers that responded to the call in Mohawk Park.  The officer realized that the Raptor truck had been broadcast several times during the shift and that her victim in the burglary was Hispanic and the Raptor truck suspect was Hispanic and now the homicide victim was Hispanic.


At 4:07 Pm Tulsa Police receive a call from a person in Houston TX wanting to report his Ford Raptor stolen, however his explanation to us was confusing and suspicious.  Tulsa Police took the vehicle’s information and completed a report but did not list the truck as stolen. 


The investigation has determined that the victims that lost the Raptor at 1107 S Harvard borrowed another truck and went to locate the suspect in his apartment near 2100 S Memorial.  The victims now become suspects in an abduction because they kidnap the brother of the suspect that stole the Ford Raptor.  The brother is driven to Mohawk Park shot and killed for being the brother of the Raptor thief.


These suspects commit an armed robbery at 2119 S Garnett road at 7:20 PM stealing a black Ford F 150 Pickup by putting a gun to the victim’s head and demanding the keys.  The victim complied and no one was hurt.  The description of the robbers was two Hispanic males one had tattoos on his face and one Hispanic female.


At 8:36 PM Tulsa Police were called to an armed robbery at the Asian Express 4748 N Peoria.  The suspect in this robbery was a Hispanic male with tattoos on his face.  The suspect vehicle was a black Ford Pickup. 


At 9:42 PM the son of the victim in the auto theft at 2119 S Garnett spots the stolen truck at the store at 4107 S Harvard.  Officers arrive and stop the truck arresting two Hispanic males and one Hispanic female.


During this time Gang officers spot the alleged stolen Raptor pickup and stop the truck at 1800 E Marshall.  The individual in this truck is questioned and it is determined that he traded his truck for this truck to a Hispanic male.  The investigation reveals that the person named as Elvin Flores is the one that traded the male for the Raptor.  We have not located the man known as Elvin Flores.


With all the coincidences of the Raptor and similar descriptions Robbery and homicide detectives began a series of interviews that will lead to the arrest of the individual or individuals responsible for the murder in Mohawk Park.


At this time we are still investigating and no names can be released.  We have determined that the name Elvin Flores is an alias and we believe he is the brother of the victim of homicide 2016-59.

Is the Sheriff of Harris County being petty or is it a simple oversight?

That’s the question former Harris County Sheriff Adrian Garcia is asking…

This is after Garcia learned his photo was removed from public display by someone in Sheriff Ron Hickman’s current administration…  

That portrait was on the wall in the lobby of the Sheriff’s office but Garcia says once Hickman was appointed his picture was removed and never replaced.  

There is just an empty space while all previous Sheriffs in Harris County are on the wall. 

Here’s the response from Sheriff Hickman’s administration :  

The picture was removed in April of this year.  We were under the impression that it was taken down to be refinished.  After doing some research we have not been able to locate it.  Our team is in the process of replacing it consistent with the other photos displayed.

BATON ROUGE, LA – The National Center for Disaster Fraud (“NCDF”) announced today its efforts to combat disaster fraud related to the historic flooding event in the Baton Rouge region in August 2016.  

The NCDF – which includes over 30 federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies – was established by the U.S. Department of Justice following Hurricane Katrina and is led by United States Attorney Walt Green who serves as its Executive Director. 

The NCDF provides a nationwide call center for members of the public to report all types of disaster fraud, as well as a team of law enforcement agents who review those reports and make referrals to the appropriate investigative agencies.  It provides de-confliction, coordination, and expertise in handling disaster fraud matters and is focused on protecting disaster victims and any funds dedicated to disaster victims.  The Disaster Fraud Hotline is 1-866-720-5721.

The NCDF has received more than 68,000 complaints involving over 40 different disasters, resulting in over 50,000 referrals to law enforcement agencies.  With regard to the flooding in Baton Rouge specifically, the NCDF has already received over 1200 complaints.  

U.S. Attorney and NCDF Executive Director Green stated: “The NCDF and its partners are united in the common belief that those who fraudulently exploit tragedy and disaster for personal gain must be aggressively investigated and prosecuted.  I am proud of the vast coalition of law enforcement agencies for every level that have come together under the NCDF umbrella to combat those fraudsters who invariably seek to take advantage of communities suffering from disasters.”

Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry stated:  “Our office will continue to do all we can to assist those impacted by the flooding.  From receiving and investigating consumer complaints to educating victims of potential scams, the Louisiana Department of Justice remains dedicated to serving the people of our State and their precious tax dollars.  We stand united with our partners to ensure the storm’s victims receive the help they need and do not fall prey to those who want to exploit the system.”

FBI New Orleans Division Special Agent in Charge Jeffrey Sallet stated: “Unfortunately, not only has our state witnessed yet another catastrophic disaster, but along with these floods comes the possibility for fraud and abuse regarding disaster relief funding.  While Louisiana residents are attempting to rebuild and repair their lives and homes, there are those who will try to take advantage of the situation and attempt to illegally acquire funds they are not entitled to.  The FBI New Orleans Division will continue to seamlessly work with our federal, state and local partners in order to investigate fraudulent claims and contractor abuse.”

“It is disheartening that in the aftermath of a natural disaster, criminal elements attempt to steal funds intended to provide relief to victims,” said Michael Breslin, Special Agent in Charge of the U.S. Secret Service’s Criminal Investigative Division. “Disaster related fraud is not only detrimental to our nation’s financial infrastructure, it slows the process of providing much needed resources to those who have lost so much. For this reason, the Secret Service remains a committed partner of the National Center for Disaster Fraud and will relentlessly protect the process to provide financial relief to the victims.”

“The DHS Office of Inspector General has been an enthusiastic participant in the National Center for Disaster Fraud Task Force since its inception,” said Inspector General John Roth.  “We continue to work with our Task Force partners to address and combat waste, fraud, and abuse arising out of the recent flooding in Louisiana, ensuring that FEMA emergency assistance is going to the disaster survivors that need it.  Suspected fraud or scams should be reported toll-free to the Disaster Fraud Hotline at 1-866-720-5721.” 

District Attorney Ricky Babin of the 23rdJudicial District Court stated: “The flood of 2016 has brought unprecedented human and financial loss to our communities.  The 23rd Judicial District Attorney’s office is proud to join our Federal and State law enforcement partners to hold accountable any person who engages in fraud or attempts to take advantage of the victims of this natural disaster.  The victims of this event have already suffered staggering devastation.   This joint effort will pool our resources to focus on predatory practices that may cause further losses.”

Ascension Parish Sheriff Jeffrey Wiley stated: “The last thing that victims of flood damage need is to be victimized again. This task force will involve all levels of law enforcement and will serve an important mission, to protect those that need it the most.”

At stores in the city of Brownsville, shoppers are charged a $1 per bag “environmental fee” for plastic bags provided during checkout. Maintaining that the fee is an illegal sales tax, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton today filed a lawsuit against the city to permanently ban the fee.

Under the Texas Health & Safety Code, plastic checkout bags are considered “containers or packages.” Because state law requires local governments to manage waste from taxes already collected, the law prohibits them from assessing taxes or fees at the cash register. However, in Brownsville, citizens are being unlawfully taxed. 
According to a published report, shoppers in the city of Brownsville hand over almost $71,000 per month in illegal environmental fees.

“No local government has the authority to violate Texas law just because it feels like it,” Attorney General Paxton said. “Clearly, Brownsville is raising taxes on its citizens through this unlawful bag fee. The rule of law must be upheld, and state law is clear – bags may not be taxed.”

Since its inception through January of this year, the city of Brownsville’s $1 environmental fee taxed citizens around $3.8 million, according to the Brownsville Herald.
