Militia Members Arrested in Brownsville

 KRVG 5 News

BROWNSVILLE – The leader of a border volunteer group says he will not allow two members back on his camp once they are released from county jail.

The arrests are detrimental to the group’s agenda, he said.

Officials say Steven Kurt Brooks, one of the group’s members, left a handgun behind at the restroom at a Stripes Store. Brooks doesn’t have a concealed handgun license.  

Brooks was arrested and charged with unlawfully carrying a weapon at a business that sells alcohol.

Cameron County Sheriff Omar Lucio said a second militia member, Richard Coonie Smith, tried to claim the gun.

Lucio said they knew Smith wasn’t the person on the surveillance video. He was arrested and charged with making a false police report.

“They were volunteers who came in from another state. They were here to help us on the border,” K.C. Massey said.

Massey is the leader at Camp Lonestar. The operation is nestled on private property against the border fence south of Brownsville.

“We will not allow them back into the camp,” Massey said.

“I can’t explain or say why he did what he did. I can tell you it is against what we tell people to do here at camp,” Massey said.

The arrests mark the second incident involving members from Camp Lonestar.
Last month a Border Patrol agent opened fire on an armed volunteer. The man was not injured.

Lucio said authorities are concerned about the group’s presence in the region.

“We don’t know who they are,” he said.

Massey said they don’t accept volunteers who are on probation or parole.

He says they have already kicked out four people. Smith and Brooks will make that number six.

  1. “Brooks was arrested and charged with unlawfully carrying a weapon at a business that sells alcohol.”

    Hmm…Didn’t know that the 2nd Article to the Bill of Rights stated, “The Right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed EXCEPT at a business that sells alcohol”?

    Where does it say that?

    “Brooks doesn’t have a concealed handgun license.”

    Once again, I didn’t know the 2nd Article to the Bill of Rights stated, “The Right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed EXCEPT if you don’t have a concealed handgun license”?

    Again, where does it say that?

    “The arrests mark the second incident involving members from Camp Lonestar.

    Last month a Border Patrol agent opened fire on an armed volunteer. The man was not injured.”

    Yes, just keep reminding and reporting the biased half truth in that the Border Patrol opened fired on the armed volunteer FIRST, but not say WHY he opened fired on the armed volunteer in the first place! I mean that of course is not important as the object is to make the militia look bad and not the border patrol agent. 🙄

    Unfrigginbelievable….

        1. Yep, and some treasonous dirtbags still think it is an “old, out-dated document”, but feel that the Communist Manifesto is not.

          Disgusting. Hang ’em all!

    1. “Yes, just keep reminding and reporting the biased half truth in that the Border Patrol opened fired on the armed volunteer FIRST”

      I meant to say that they were being biased in that they DIDN’T report that the Border Patrol opened fire on the armed volunteer FIRST, but the comment section closed before I had a chance to modify it. D’oh! lol

    1. Hubby & I love our home state (Texas), too. 🙂
      Which one are you talking about? The Bush family, Perry, Abbott, Cruz…
