Las Vegas Police Raid Latino Civil Rights Group's Office

LAS VEGAS - The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department on Wednesday raided the office of a Latino civil rights organization.

Police served warrants for nine felony counts at the office of the League of United Latin American Citizens or LULAC. The warrants are for nine felony counts related to theft and burglary. Police also raided the home of the group's Nevada director Rene Orozco.

Police served the warrants over allegations Orozco took money from clients who hired him to aid them with citizenship and criminal issues. But, the victims say Orozco pocketed the money without providing any aid. Many of the victims are undocumented immigrants.
