One by one deputies are rounding up a group of men they accuse in pseudo cop home invasion near Mercedes and 5 of the 7 men are behind bars.
A captain for the Hidalgo county sheriff's department confirms 24 year-old Ruben Villarreal turned himself in on Wednesday. Police charged him with aggravated robbery and a judge gave him a $1 million dollar bond. Sheriff investigators began working the case in early September when 7 men stormed in to a house on Tia Maria street and demanded money and drugs.
Tonight, officials are still searching for 37 year-old Ricardo Guzman and 31 year-old Carlos Castillo. If you have any information in this case, call the Hidalgo county CrimeStoppers line at 956.668.TIPS.
