Suspected heroin ring kingpin and Texas Syndicate member, Amado “Mayo” Pardo, along with ten of the other alleged drug ring collaborators are due to appear in court today {Friday June 22nd} at 2:30 pm. Austin exploded, literally, yesterday morning as a host of law enforcement officers detonated explosive devices to gain entry into at least 2 homes in the Bouldin Creek neighborhood of South Austin.

Fifteen of the alleged heroin sales conspirators were named in a federal indictment that was unsealed yesterday.

As news broke we loaded up and hit south Austin to visit the restaurant, take some pictures and hopefully interview employees of Jovita’s over the charges.

Picture 1 a shuttered Jovita’s

Picture 2 the marquee of the show that never happened. Would love to hear from Austin band “The Cold Irons” and get their take on the affair.
