Wouldn't you at least refrain from pulling drunk hi-jinks inside the county courthouse that sits smack-dab in the middle of the seventh-largest city in the nation?
You would, probably, but these guys didn't.
Bexar County Judge Nelson Wolff said surveillance video from inside the courthouse early Wednesday shows the men wearing sombreros and waving around a gavel. He says they appear to "just be some guys on a prank."(from KENS-5)
Had the two men who broke into the courthouse been from San Antonio, Wolff said the investigation would have been ruled a prank long ago.
“But when it’s people from another country, who have only been here a short while, it raises a lot of concerns,” he said.
Around 1:00 a.m. Wednesday two men were caught inside the Bexar County Courthouse.
Investigators said the courthouse’s security cameras show the men climbing a fire escape and entering the courthouse through a fourth floor window.
The men allegedly took a judges gavel from one courtroom and two sombreros from an office.
“It is very likely that these individuals were just intoxicated,” said Bexar County Sheriff Amadeo Ortiz. “ They might not of even known what this building was.”
Three additional men were found outside the courthouse inside a parked RV. Also in the RV were 90-day visas, maps, cell phones and computers.
All five men, Adil Ajiad, Camile Huet, Hicham Ajjaid,, Mehdi Ajjaid, and Meissa Mithra, are in the United States on visas from France and are of Moroccan decent, according to the sheriff’s office.
They should have waited until Fiesta. No one would have batted an eye then.
