Greg Arnold, left, and Paul Marrick are private investigators hired nearly 25 years ago by the Church of Scientology to trail Patrick Broeker, a former leader, they say. The checks have stopped, and they are suing the church, saying their verbal deal was violated.

SAN ANTONIO, Texas — Nearly 25 years ago, the Church of Scientology hired two former California cops to do a job.

Spy on Patrick D. Broeker.

Church officials painted Broeker as an errand boy for the late Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard. They said he had made off with $1.8 million and a cache of critically important Hubbard records.

Follow Broeker, they said. Watch him every minute. Report back frequently.

The private eyes did. Beginning in 1988 and continuing for a quarter of a century, Paul Marrick and Greg Arnold tracked Broeker from a California apartment to a cowboy town in Wyoming and even to the Czech Republic.

They spied on his girlfriends, rifled through his garbage and listened to his phone calls.

All best wishes,

Lemme see.

$10,000 a week for 20 years is 10,400,000.

What your donations buy.

One less “ideal org”.

There’s a Tony Ortega article in Dallas Morning News this morning. For some reason this article and others on this subject are not showing up on Google News.
