Bride loses $700+ on the wedding day

Violent crime in Houston
If it seems like there is more crime going on right now in Houston, it is not just your imagination. For a period in January, the city of Houston was at the top among the nation’s five largest cities for the most homicides thus far in 2022.
Investigator Mario Diaz is looking into the rise of violent crime in our area, and what city leaders are saying about it.
KPRC 2 team on the border
Investigator Robert Arnold took a trip to the border for a closer look at what Galveston County law enforcement is doing to help.
Since August 2021, the Galveston County Sheriff’s Office and three Constable’s offices have regularly sent resources to help rural county law enforcement deal with an influx of immigrants illegally crossing the border. Robert looks into what is being done. You can also become an KPRC 2 Insider to hear more about Robert’s experiences at the border over his years of reporting there.
