1961 Associates
(two reports)

Dade County Police File
CI-300-D



DATE: JUNE 26, 1961

TO: THOMAS J. KELLY, Metropolitan Sheriff

FROM: LT. FRANK KAPPEL, Supervisor, Criminal Intelligence

SUBJECT: ELOY GUTIERREZ MENOYO

Acting on information received from a usually reliable confidential source, the writer, accompanied by Agent Leonard, checked the premises at 1332 N.W. 2nd Street, Miami, Florida in an attempt to locate the above named subject who is alleged to be a former Major in the Castro army.  MENOYO is further alleged to be carrying a loaded automatic pistol on his person at all times.

Subsequent investigation disclosed MENOYO had moved to 1324 N.W. 2nd Street, (next door), on Thursday, June 22, 1961 with four other Cuban exile males.

MENOYO was located on Friday, June 23, 1961 in an apartment over 1324 N.W. 2nd Street in the company of seven other Cuban males whose names are as follows:

1.  LORENZO FLORENCIO PERNAS, Age 33.
2.  ANGEL GILBERTO PANTOJA BANOS, Age 26
3.  ROGER REDONDO GONZALEZ, Age 26
4.  ARMONDO FRETES, Age 31
5.  ACOSTA DOMINGO ORTEGA, Age 24
6.  ENRIQUE NUNEZ, Age 27
7.  RAPHAEL HUGUET, Age 26

BANOS acted as spokesman for the group and when questioned about the weapon willingly surrendered it to the writer.  It had been kept in a top drawer of a dresser in the southeast bedroom.

The weapon to be submitted for ballistics check, is described as a German P-38, Serial Number 5063, blue steel, and includes a clip of eight rounds of live ammunition.

MENOYO, through BANOS, stated they needed the weapon when in the area of the Roberts Drug Store, 590 W. Flagler Street, as "all the people in that area carry guns".  We advised against any further carrying of arms and suggested we be notified if any were observed at Roberts Drug Store in the future.

BANOS further stated this group had arrived at Key West, Florida around New Years after having fled Cuba aboard two fishing boats.

MENOYO is well known to this unit and to many Agencies of the Federal Government for his activities and associates while in Castro's service.

Periodic checks of this group will be made with additional reports forthcoming.

Respectfully submitted,

EDWARD R. CLODE
