HOUSTON – An early-morning Valentine’s Day arrest and search warrant, run by the Houston Police Department’s Major Offenders Livestock and Animal Cruelty Unit in the Rice Village area as part of a bestiality investigation, resulted in a man’s arrest.

The man, identified by Houston police as 31-year-old Juan Pablo Tschen, did not have anything to say as Channel 2 Investigates asked him questions while he was being led away in handcuffs from his parents’ home in the 2200 block of Southgate near Rice Village.

Sgt. Jason Aldrete, the supervisor who oversees the unit, said the suspect is accused of offering his pets up for a sexual relationship with one of the unit’s female officers.

“He approached an undercover officer and offered his animals, his dogs, up for sexual relations with an undercover officer and himself,” Aldrete told Channel 2 Investigates’ Mario Diaz.

Officers also searched Tschen’s house in the 2700 block of Amherst in West University Place. They arrested Tschen at one of the properties.

The second property was under renovation, and investigators tell KPRC2 Tschen lived at that home.

Officers said one of the dogs that he offered to the undercover officer for a sexual relationship via text and in person was a German shepherd.

BARC confirmed three dogs belonging to the family were confiscated:

  • Bo, a male, black and fawn German shepherd, who is around 4 years old
  • Sayhass, a male, tricolor Jack Russell terrior mix, who is around 3 years old
  • Mozzie, a male, brindle and white Australian shepherd mix, who is around 2 years old

A family spokesperson told KPRC2, “Juan Pablo is a loving brother and son. We believe the facts will show that there has been a big mistake and that the allegations against him are completely false.”

Investigators told KPRC2 Tschen is not cooperating.

The arrest is part of an ongoing investigation, according to Aldrete.

“It’s an ultra-underground scene, so we don’t know how deep this goes,” he said.

However, he and his team told KPRC2 there are many more people involved.

“We’re conducting a similar investigation involving bestiality with another couple of people,” Aldrete said. “We believe there is a large group of people in the Houston area and the state and the country that are involved in bestiality.”

Although treated as animal abuse in the past, bestiality only became a criminal act in recent years.

Tschen is facing three counts of bestiality, according to Aldrete.

“It’s a very demented crime,” he said. “It’s really sad, and I really hope that the man can get the help he needs.”

“Oh geez. That’s unbelievable,” said one neighbor. “I’m not surprised. It occurs anywhere.”

HPD investigators echo those thoughts

“These are people from everyday walks of life. Seemingly normal people, many of them well-educated and they are involved in this,” Aldrete said.

50 CENT: I gotta get rid of all the Gucci I have at home. I’m not supporting their brand anymore.

I gotta get rid of all the Gucci I have at home. I’m not supporting their brand anymore.

 

50 Cent is joining the list of rappers who say they’re no longer wearing Gucci following the luxury brand’s Blackface sweater controversy.

On Wednesday (Feb. 13), 50 posted a video on his Instagram page of himself setting a Gucci T-shirt on fire and almost burning himself in the process. At one point you can see the tee disintegrate into flames as 50 stands over a pile of old Gucci clothes that he has dumped from his closet.

“I gotta get rid of all the Gucci I have at home. I’m not supporting their brand anymore,” he wrote in the caption.

Before his Gucci clothing bonfire, 50 Cent wrote on his IG that he was done with Gucci and is donating his wares to the needy. “Yeah I’m gonna pass on Gucci, I’m giving all mine to the homeless so the right demo can wear it,” he wrote.

50’s Gucci burning also comes after he slammed his good friend and boxing icon Floyd Mayweather, Jr., The boxing legend recently told TMZ that he doesn’t care about the boycott and that he will continue to buy from Gucci despite calls from T.I., Spike Lee and others to stop supporting the brand. In response, the Power creator went on his IG page and posted a photo of Floyd wearing the Gucci sweater in all of its Blackface glory.

For those who don’t know, Gucci was called out for their wool balaclava jumper, which closely resembles a person in Blackface. The fashion house has issued an apology for the offending item, but the damage was already done. Several rappers including T.I., Soulja Boy and Q-Tip are boycotting the fashion brand.

“@gucci As a 7 figure/yr customer & long time supporter of your brand I must say…Y’all GOT US fucked UP!!” wrote Q-Tip on his IG page. “APOLOGY NOT ACCEPTED!!!! We ain’t going for this “oops my bad I didn’t mean to be racist and disrespectful towards your people” shit!!!”

Cuomo blames other NY Dems for Amazon exit as AOC celebrates

Q7MJQJ36ERDHXHDIRLXUWU4XAQGov. Andrew Cuomo and U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, both Democrats from New York, appear in AP file photos.

 

Gov. Andrew Cuomo has issued a statement blaming other Democratic politicians in New York for Amazon’s decision to abandon plans for an HQ2 site in Long Island City.

“Amazon chose to come to New York because we are the capital of the world and the best place to do business,” Cuomo said Thursday. “Bringing Amazon to New York diversified our economy away from real estate and Wall Street, further cementing our status as an emerging center for tech and was an extraordinary economic win not just for Queens and New York City, but for the entire region, from Long Island to Albany’s nanotech center.”

“However, a small group (of) politicians put their own narrow political interests above their community — which poll after poll showed overwhelmingly supported bringing Amazon to Long Island City — the state’s economic future and the best interests of the people of this state. The New York State Senate has done tremendous damage. They should be held accountable for this lost economic opportunity.”

Cuomo didn’t name any specific names, but Newsday reports his spokeswoman Dani Lever singled out NY State Senator Todd Kaminsky as the “dean” of Long Island delegation.

“[He] tanked the Amazon plan by placing a stalwart Amazon opponent on the government approval board to pander to the local socialists,” Lever said Thursday. “Senator Kaminsky cowered when he should have shown courage.”

The Amazon deal would have brought 25,000 jobs to Long Island City in Queens and as much as $30 billion in revenue. In exchange, the state and city agreed to give the retail giant $3 billion in tax incentives.

Some questioned why America’s most valuable company — headed by the richest man in the world, Jeff Bezos — needed incentives to come to NYC. According to the Wall Street Journal, opposition grew among left-leaning activist groups in the rapidly gentrifying area of Northern Queens, where the Democratic Socialists of America helped U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez beat longtime incumbent Joe Crowley last year and secure a Democratic majority in the New York State Senate for the first time in a decade.

Ocasio-Cortez, also known as AOC, celebrated Amazon’s exit. She previously criticized the tax incentives, saying such money could be used towards improving the city’s subway system and investing in local communities.

“Anything is possible: today was the day a group of dedicated, everyday New Yorkers & their neighbors defeated Amazon’s corporate greed, its worker exploitation, and the power of the richest man in the world,” she tweeted Thursday.

Amazon said Thursday that local opposition was the main reason it is dropping its New York City plans, despite 70 percent of Empire State residents supporting the investment. The company said it would keep its planned HQ2 site in Virginia and an expansion in Nashville, Tennessee, but would not replace its NYC plans with another HQ2 site.

Concerns have now been raised about whether Amazon’s departure would hurt the rest of New York state and possibly deter other tech companies from coming to NY. Cuomo, however, managed to still express optimism.

“The fundamentals of New York’s business climate and community that attracted Amazon to be here – our talent pool, world-class education system, commitment to diversity and progressivism – remain and we won’t be deterred as we continue to attract world class business to communities across New York State,” the New York governor said.
