Gulf Hotel claims police harassment

Story PictureThere are also allegations of harassment against the owners of the Gulf Hotel near mile two on the Northern Highway. Son of the proprietors, Alfonso Sun, visited our studios today irate that at least seven cops dressed in casual wear and brandishing weapons entered the hotel and his home through the back gate. His girlfriend and baby were the only ones present at the time. According to Sun, the officers were allegedly in search of millions of U.S. dollars and drugs that were allegedly hidden inside the premises. Sun says that his family is trying to make a living and that the cops are simply trying to hustle them. This is not the first reported attempt and he says nothing has come out of the previous incidents.
