Police, state, and federal agents fanned out across the city, knocking on doors and arresting city officials including the mayor. A total of eight people were arrested in the early morning raids. In one instance, the police had to use a battering ram to gain entrance to the home of a city official. “They broke the door down,” said the neighbor, who only gave his name as Jose. “They knocked down the door and they brought him out in cuffs.”
They are all charged with misappropriating millions of dollars in city funds for their personal use. Corruption on steroids. Pity.
