A.C.P. Broaster Says He Knew Mason Was Shady and Kept His Distance

Edward Broaster

News Five also managed to contact Hattieville Commander Rochelle Chan who explained to us that he met Mason only once while conducting an investigation concerning an employee at his ranch at Mile thirty-one. Chan claims that during that conversation the subject of possible donations to the Police came up but it never went beyond that. And as to the request for a meet with Broaster, Chan told us that it was regarding the same donations and all he did was pass on the message from what was at that point a prospective donor and nothing more.

 

ACP Edward Broaster, Regional Commander, Rural Eastern Division

“At that time when Mister Chan told me that Mister Mason wanted to do a donation of motorcycle or so forth, I just told Mister Chan that I am not interested and I’m not interested in meeting Mister Mason.”

 

Reporter

“And you did not care to find out from your Officer Commanding Hattieville Police what was his relationship with Mister Mason was, given the fact that you already knew Mister Mason was a dubious character?”

 

ACP Edward Broaster

“Well, when Mister Chan told me basically what he did and the conversation that he and Mister Mason had about donation of motorcycles and stuff like that and wanting to meet me. Like I said, and I am going to repeat it again, I had no interest in doing so.”

 

Reporter

“Can you clarify or again share more details as to that situation involving Baker’s Ranch. You never came…”

 

ACP Edward Broaster

“I never came in contact with Mister Mason. No when I received the report regarding Danny Mason and the information I received from my friend from Los Angeles, Richard Evans, I sent a team of officers to Baker’s Ranch to investigate the matter and they dealt with Mister Mason.”

 

Reporter

“Dealt with him?”

 

ACP Edward Broaster

“Gave him, I think at that time, they gave him forty-eight hours to vacate the premises.”

 

Reporter

“And there was no backlash from—I’m using that word loosely—from him in relation to that?”

 

ACP Edward Broaster

“I have no idea. I have no idea if he already had friends in law enforcement.”
