EDCOUCH, Texas (ValleyCentral) — This morning before 9 a.m. the FBI and local law enforcement including the Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Office were seen at Edcouch City Hall.
The agencies were seen removing boxes of documents from City Hall and loading them into a van.
Hidalgo County Sheriff Eddie Guerra said his office is helping its federal partners.
Additionally, a large white truck with the words “evidence response team” was seen parked in front of city hall.
The FBI was also seen this morning at the home of Edcouch Assistant City Manager Ernesto Rosales in McAllen. In recent weeks, the Texas Department of Public Safety charges Rosales with two misdemeanors after he was caught with marijuana and a loaded gun.
This is a developing story and will be updated as more information becomes available.
Correction: The FBI raided Edcouch City Hall, not Edcouch Elsa City Hall.
