Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry


  1. Wonder if this will be tied to the skimming that took place back in July at the Exxon on Hwy 105 and S. Blue Bell Rd?

  2. At the very least, deport him and put him at the no visa ever status. Betting he has a criminal record in his country. If he was responsible for all the fraud the last year at Hwys. 105 and FM 577 intersection stores, well done arrest.

  3. To the Washington County DA and Law Enforcement, please DO NOT let this man loose to continue to prey on the public. His bail should be set HIGH, and his sentence if convicted, should be LONG! People that do what he does cause so much harm to completely innocent and unsuspecting citizens. It is time CITIZENS stand up to people like this and let them no we are not going to take it any more, if you are caught, you are going to jail for a long long time.

    1. I agree with you 100 percent!!! We had money stolen from us during that ordeal aforementioned. Luckily, our bank was able to recover the money and therefore we got it back. We work hard for our money and have to take care of our family. Set an example that will make people think twice about doing that stuff in Washington County!!!!
