Federal Agents Raid Nice Guy's Auto, Owner's Home

CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

A federal raid shut down three local businesses Wednesday and put two people behind bars.

The U.S. Attorney's Office said it is a case of people trying to avoid reporting cash transactions of over $10,000 to the government.

It was around 8 a.m. when federal agents raided Nice Guy's Auto, on Everhart near Holly, and called in tow trucks to have every car towed away. The work finally wrapped up around noon, but agents remained inside the business for hours.

At the same time, agents raided a home along the 4100 block of Ocean Drive. Kimberly Davis and Justin Colmenero were indicted as part of the raid, and are accused of not reporting to the government cash payments of over $10,000, which they received in the sale of cars.

Agents raided their homes and three businesses they are tied to, including Nice Guy's Auto.

Police said that Kimberly Davis has previously appeared in the news in February of 2011. She was arguing against the police department's crackdown on synthetic marijuana.

Davis and Colmenero are supposed to appear in federal court Thursday afternoon. If convicted, they face up to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $500,000.
