A federal grand jury has indicted Liberty County Sheriff’s Captain, Harry Kelley (Democrat) and Gary Lee, Owner of (Humble) Sportsman Outlet, following an investigation involving the disappearance of approximately 500 firearms from the Cleveland Police Department.
The resulting federal indictments and allegations cast a dark shadow of corruption and illegal activities surrounding Liberty County Sheriff, Henry Patterson (previous Democrat). Also called into question are the activities or lack of... regarding the Liberty County District Attorneys office. Whats even more questionable about Patterson is his decision to keep those under federal investigation working on sensitive cases and investigations within the Liberty County Sheriff's Office. Defense attorneys in Liberty County could now call into question the investigations and any evidence supported by Kelly and Patterson prosecutions.
In unrelated news, federal investigators with Homeland Security have descended down upon Chambers County officials and documents. The Homeland Security investigation centers around the insider trading of contracts, bid rigging (collusion), official misconduct, official oppression, financial fraud, making false statements on government documents, evidence tampering and other allegations against Chambers County Officials and their families.
