$1.9 Million Seized from Game Room

game-roomThe Houston Police Department Vice Division initiated an undercover investigation into organized criminal activity at the Green Grass Game Room located at 9440 Long Point Road. In addition to an illegal game room, there were also issues with armed robbery, burglary of motor vehicles, and assaults.

HPD and District Attorney Devon Anderson were able to seize over $1.9 million laundered by the owners of the game room. It was determined by HPD that these profits were obtained illegally and that no taxes were paid on these proceeds.

Dan Harris, Captain of the Vice Division, credited this investigation to tips they received from our office as well as the overtime funds allocated to District A from our Council District Service Funds.

Thank you to HPD and District Attorney Devon Anderson for making our community safer!

emergency-alerts

When severe weather or other emergencies strike, the effects can be widespread and may be injury or death. That’s why its important to stay up to date with emergency notifications offered by trusted, local and national authorities. In Houston, we use three different systems to notify the public. These are used based on the severity and scale of the emergency.
