Steven Schwartz went from observing the Cossacks on the front porch on the East side of Twin Peaks (facing 35) to the North side of Twin peaks, which would be Don Carlos side.
Lt. Steven Schwartz Testimony – English Trial- watching Twin Peaks patio
(from the Aging Rebel Article – Texas DPS Version) “During the briefing, surveillance observed a large group of Cossack members at Twin Peaks in and around the patio area. A decision was made during the briefing by Lieutenant Schwartz not to send undercover Special Agents into the restaurant. A decision was made for Special Agents to pair up to conduct surveillance of the area and gather intelligence. Special Agent Frost and Dale were in one vehicle with Lieutenant Schwartz, Special Agent Ledbetter and Overcast were paired and Special Agent Gerik and Detective Rogers were paired.”
Lt. Steven Schwartz says he saw support groups at the Flying J Truck Stop
(from Aging Rebel Article – Texas DPS Version) “On 05-17-15 at about 10:30 AM, Special Agent Frost drove by Twin Peaks parking lot and observed what appeared to be employee’s only at the restaurant. Special Agent Frost proceeded to the DPS CID briefing location which was the Flying J Truck Stop parking lot located at 2409 South New Road in Waco. Once at the Flying J, Special Agent Frost met with Special Agents Cory Ledbetter, Justin Overcast, Mark Gerik, Chris Dale and Lieutenant Schwartz. While in the parking lot, Special Agents observed a large number of unknown motorcycle club or OMG members walking around and through the parking lot conducting what appeared to be counter surveillance. Special Agents moved the briefing to another location.”

Lt. Steven Schwartz Testimony at Yager trial 8/24/15
At another trial this week for Bandido’s Chaplain Lawrence Yager, Lt. Steven Schwartz testified that when he went into Twin peaks that “it was like a tornado went through a gun and knife store.”
For the third trial against the Bandidos in which Schwartz testified against another member from out of state, it seems that Schwartz’ only role is to present false, conflicting, and slanderous information against one Motorcycle Club and leaving the other’s role alone.
(from Aging Rebel Article – Texas DPS Version) “Once information was confirmed that only the patio was rented and the main portion of the restaurant would be open to the public, a decision was made to have Special Agents working in undercover capacity to be inside the restaurant. These Special Agents would be inside the restaurant to conduct surveillance and gather intelligence from inside the restaurant. A CID Operational Plan was completed and will be maintained at the Waco DPS CID Office.”
“Special Agents entered the parking lot of the Central Texas Market Place and began monitoring Twin Peaks at around 11:40 A.M. on 05-17-15. At approximately 12:24 P.M. Special Agent Gerik reported gunshots from the parking lot of Twin Peaks. Special Agents responded and assisted the Waco Police Department in securing individuals, administering first aid and securing the perimeter around Twin Peaks.”
