I agree with WONDER. It's time the FBI comes in to clean house. I'm willing to bet that if they do come to Pecos it will make this Toyah case look dwarf next to a basketball player. I can only imagine the dirty laundry that could be found by a formal investigation. Hopefully Pecos is next on their list.

Your comment makes little sense. Render unto Ceasar,.... I live in Toyah and we have been RIPPED OFF and this is just a\one more nail in the coffin of our near ghost town. I wish we as residents had done more, earlier than just saying to ourselves, "What's going on with all the money coming into town? How come we don't pay our Madera Valley water bill when a hundred trucks fill up daily?" God will judge him inoccent or guilty but the people need to push through this pile of vile corruption and try to reclaim some much needed funds for out city.
