A few days ago, I blogged about a story in which two Texas teens were killed and a third was injured in a San Marcos home invasion that appeared to be a clear case of self-defense. (If you’re having trouble remembering the story, it may jog your memory that several comments discussed the couch on the porch and the ramshackle nature of the home.)
The police report adds a few new details:
“According to an arrest affidavit for Frank Castro — the 17-year-old charged with aggravated robbery in San Marcos following a botched home invasion that left two teens fatally shot and another seriously injured — he and his associates were trying to steal drugs.
Castro, Rudy Tinoco, John Alvarez and Jordan Mendez entered the the home in the 900 block of Chestnutt Street about 2 a.m. armed with pellet guns and a Ruger pistol, according to the affidavit.
Castro told police that a resident at the house they knew as Harry Potter was known to sell large quantities of hydroponically grown marijuana, according to the affidavit. Castro said they went to the house to rob the man, who police have not identified, of the drug.”
I wonder if Harry Potter is his real name?
