HCSO: Undercover sting nets more than a dozen arrests
HOUSTON (KTRK) -- An undercover operation led to more than a dozen arrests, according to the Harris County Sheriff's Office. Included in those arrested was a wanted murder suspect.
The investigation started after citizens started complaining about possible prostitution and drug dealing at Houston Dolls Cabaret and Amusement Game room, both located at 313 Rankin Road.
According to the Harris County Sheriff's Office, deputies had been called out to the location more than 250 times since 2009.
Inside the club, deputies say they recovered drugs and evidence of sexual activity. Twenty-two warrants were obtained and the following people were arrested.
The sheriff's office expects more arrests to be made.
The same night and at the same address, sheriff's office investigators say they dismantled "Amusement Game Room" after discovering evidence of illegal gambling.
That, they say, led to the seizure of more than $25,000 in cash and more than 70 gambling-device motherboards and other devices.
Investigators say one of the customers at the game room, Concepcion Lopez, 26, was arrested after investigators identified him as a suspect wanted for a murder in El Salvador. He was transferred to Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
