      Harlingen men arrested in pirate DVD case

      Julio Cesar Sanchez

      Two Harlingen men are behind after police found more than 800 pirate DVDs just a few blocks away from the police department building.

      Harlingen police arrested 28-year-old Julio Cesar Sanchez and 34-year-old Pedro Salinas Jimenez on Sunday.

      Investigators told Action 4 News that they were called to the 400 block of Lozano Street after receiving a complaint about loud music.

      Officer arrived at a parking and found both Sanchez and Jimenez listening to music inside a grey Dodge Charger.

      The officer saw a large number of DVDs in the backseat of the car.

      Investigators said they counted a total of 852 pirate DVDs and charged the two with labeling unauthorized recording.

      Both Salinas and Jimenez appeared before a Harlingen municipal judge on Monday morning where they were each issued a $10,000 dollar bond.

      Under Texas state law, labeling unauthorized recording is a crime punishable from five years in jail and/or a $250,000 fine.
