HOUSTON — Another search warrant was unsealed over the weekend in January’s deadly botched drug raid on Harding Street.

The warrant is the 19th filed in the investigation into the January raid that left two homeowners dead and five police officers injured.

The new warrant, unsealed on Sunday, allowed investigators to seize electronic data, including location information, from now-retired Houston Police Officer Gerald Goines’ police vehicle. The data stored in the vehicle’s “human machine interface” could include call logs, contacts, text messages, voice recordings and navigation information, according to the warrant. 

Goines is accused of lying to obtain a no-knock warrant in the Harding Street raid. Goines said confidential informants bought drugs at the Harding Street address, but the informants later told investigators they had never been to the house. 

The new warrant unsealed this week was filed and executed in March. Several other warrants filed in February and March were also unsealed last month. The warrants gave investigators access to former officer Steven Bryant and Goines’ workspaces, Goines’ Google accounts, and Bryant, Goines’ and two confidential informants personal and work cell phone data.
