Luna County Sheriff Raymond Cobos is among New Mexico border-area sheriffs slated to meet with Colorado sheriffs this week in Las Cruces.
Lieutenant Jon Mooridian said the meeting was organized after some Colorado sheriffs indicated an interest in learning more about area narcotics and human trafficking issues, how the border is patrolled, and seeing the terrain first-hand.
Mooridian said often officials have misconceptions about the challenges of border law enforcement, including the remoteness and rough terrain along parts of New Mexico's 54-mile international border with Mexico.
Luna County is part of a five-county border sheriff's coalition involving Dona Ana, Hidalgo, Grant and Otero counties. Mooridian said those agencies are participating in this week's information-sharing session with the Colorado sheriffs. He added that as many as 10 New Mexico sheriffs may be there, and up to 25 Colorado sheriffs.
The meeting is taking place Tuesday and Wednesday at a Las Cruces hotel, and will involve escorting the visitors to see the international border firsthand.
A Mexican national last week pleaded guilty to attempting to bribe a Customs and Border Protection officer at the Columbus port of entry.
25-year-old Gabriela Quintana-Hernandez of Gomez Farias, Chihuahua, Mexico, reportedly offered the Customs officer 25-hundred dollars if he would help her get to Albuquerque. The bribe attempt was prompted by the fact that Quintana-Hernandez did not have immigration documents permitting her to enter the United States legally.
The officer reported the bribe, and Quintana-Hernandez was arrested at the port on December 1st and has remained in federal custody. Her sentencing hearing has not been set.
A jailed gun store owner alleged to have sold weapons that made it into the hands of Mexican cartels says he is on a hunger strike.
Ian Garland wrote in a letter to the Las Cruces Sun-News that he won't eat until he is allowed visits from his lawyers and the media. The 51-year-old pleaded guilty in July to federal charges of conspiracy and making false statements in the acquisition of firearms. He tried to withdraw his plea last month but U.S. District Court Judge Robert Brack denied the request.
The Chaparral, N.M., man was one of 14 border residents who entered plea agreements in the case. One defendant is set for trial. Authorities accused them of conspiring to smuggle about 200 firearms favored by Mexican cartels. Involved in the same case are former Columbus Mayor Eddie Espinoza, former Police Chief Angelo Vega and former Columbus Trustee Blas "Woody" Gutierrez.
The majority of the defendants (including Garland) were arrested in March of 2011 as the result of an 84-count federal indictment. One defendant; Ignacio Villalobos remains at large. The indictment alleges the defendants engaged in a conspiracy to buy firearms for illegal export to Mexico between January 2010 and March of 2011.
