HOUSTON, Texas — A thorough investigation has led to the arrest of two former Houston police officers accused of providing false information that caused a deadly drug raid earlier this year.

Sources from FOX News say former officers Gerald Goines (left) and Steven Bryant (right) were arrested in connection with the drug raid that occurred on January 28.







A civilian identified as Patricia Garcia was also arrested due to her alleged involvement in the incident.

Reports say 58-year-old Rhogena Nicholas and 59-year-old Dennis Tuttle were killed in their home during the drug raid.

Five officers were wounded as well, according to FOX, including Goines who was shot during the raid.







Goines is reportedly being Charged with seven counts, including lying in a search warrant and making up an informant who he allegedly said had bought drugs from the home.

He allegedly confessed to buying the drugs himself.







Bryant has been Charged with falsifying records, having allegedly claimed he identified a substance bought from the home as heroin.

FOX says Garcia was Charged with providing false information.

Garcia allegedly called 911 and claimed the people inside the home were drug dealers that were using crack and heroin.

According to the DOJ, she reportedly told police that she could see her daughter inside the home.

Reports say police went to the residence after receiving the call from Garcia.

Gunfire erupted inside the home, leaving Rhogena and Dennis dead and five officers injured.

One of the officers was left paralyzed after the raid, according to FOX.

Goines and Bryant were reportedly relieved of duty after the raid and retired.

Police say they realized Goines had made up the informant when they could not find him during the investigation into the incident.

Authorities reportedly found small amounts of marijuana and cocaine inside the home, but no heroin.

FOX says family and friends of Rhogena and Dennis told police the two never sold drugs.

Goines is reportedly facing up to life in prison.

Sources say Bryant is facing up to 20 years if he is convicted.

Garcia is facing up to five years in prison.

Dallas County Sheriff's Office

DALLAS, Texas — A Dallas County Deputy was arrested earlier this afternoon for allegedly stealing from a Home Depot that had been badly damaged by a tornado last month.

The deputy’s mugshot and bond information are currently unavailable.







Sources with CBSDFW say the Deputy, identified as Joseph Bobadilla, had been working off-duty as a guard at the Home Depot located on Forest Lane.

The Dallas County Sheriff’s Department said Bobadilla has been Charged with Theft of Property worth $750 to $2,500, which will be enhanced due to him being a public servant.

Bobadilla allegedly took products from the damaged store, exchanged them at a different Home Depot for store credit, and used that credit to purchase items.







CBSDFW says police removed a new laundry machine from Bobadilla’s home after executing a search warrant at his residence.

“The Dallas Sheriff’s Office does not condone or support employees that break the law,” said Dallas County Sheriff Marian Brown. “Our core values are integrity, professionalism and accountability and as a result, we will follow the proper procedures and guidelines in place to uphold the law and ensure the deputy is held responsible for his actions.”
