Case Moves Forward Against Man for Taking Money for Tamales

Police say he took money for tamales and never delivered. Now a Wichita County grand jury has indicted 46-year-old Tony Perez in the case.

According to a Burkburnett resident, who called police on December 29th,  Perez took money for tamales and never delivered the food.

This isn't his first run-in with the law. Police say Perez has five prior convictions of theft. He also allegedly told officers that he would use the money to purchase drugs and that he wasn't concerned about prosecution.
