All the Hispanic surnames beg the question... are all these fine, upstanding people in the country legally?

Looks like the drug cartels are not Equal Opportunity Employers...

There is a Meth dealer who sells Meth in Sonoma Ranch. HINT: A D.R. Horton development. Right off of Sedona Hills pkwy. The dealer drives a white 2005 Chevy 1500 2wd that is raised in the front with PTL the last letters on his N.M. plate.

Good discription to bad they wont do anything about it. They arrest and release the Saenz out in Dona Ana and charges never stick. The next day its business as usual. So body has lined pockets what do you expect. How can a cop live in a big house in Sonoma Ranch without corruption?

Let's hope with the new governor of NM that some of the corruption will end.

So by your standards "Border Native American" all DWI's are out of work, good for nothing drunk "natives."

"One for All" this is not Nazi Germany. So save your finger pointing and name dropping. Won't earn you a badge here.

"Carlos Spiceweener" your name says it all. IDIOT!!

"Joe" go back to bed. Cuz the only place where Republicans are fine, upstanding politicians is in your dreams.

no, they are bringing in the drugs american will do.(insert sarcasm). Had to do it. Anywho I didn't see anything regarding immigration status. Chances are of the five from Dona Ana two are illegal. In El Paso I'd say only two or three are legal. CCmon though you think without illegal immigrants the drug trade would go away? You really don't realize that they are feeding the insatiable thirst AMERICA has for drugs? And since you have NO clue about the largest industry in america I'll give you some advice us heathans know, "Cocaine is a white mans drug". We may all do it but this is a rich mans habit, you know alot of rich latinos? You know ALOT of rich black folks?
And to top it off there are probably about a good 200 operations just like this one going on, probably more. And when one goes down another comes up.

Now this is some news the community needs to know about. Good job to the guys who dug up the dirt and have put them on the road to being locked up. The sun is already shining brighter on this stretch of desert.

Why don't you tell the police so they can monitor this person?

Really? Could not just get a real job. Guess all the family they used to support are going to have to get a out and support themselves instead of getting food stamps and driving brand new cars.
Good Job!!!!

Let me get this straight ... if I went to get a "haircut", asked "the painter" there that I wanted to order "15 burritos", I would get a delivery of almost a half-kilo of cocaine ???? Sounds like a good deal .....

Almost anywhere in Dona Ana County this would be the case.

Not just Dona Ana, but El Paso as well. Hey, look at those businesses popping up in El Paso run by people from Juarez. I wouldn't be surprised if there were drug rings and money laundering at those places.

"The aim of investigations like this one is to take drugs off the streets before they can enter our neighborhoods and schools," U.S. Attorney Kenneth J. Gonzales said in a statement Tuesday.

Interesting. How is that you're preventing them from entering if you're watching their operation run unencumbered for 6 months?

I always found it interesting how the border patrol stations are outside of Las Cruces as opposed to being in between El Paso and Las Cruces. It is so drug rings can establish themselvs in Las Cruces and give the Narcotics agents work.

Are you saying that Lil Matty Saenz, who was arrested for cocaine & pot was released
from police custody? The same MATTY SAENZ who runs with the NORTH SIDE DONA ANA crew (gang)? The same crunchy butt gang who was there when a truck ran over that 17 year old girl 4 weeks ago, nearly tearing her arm off and putting her into intensive care?

Well, I just wanted to make sure it was the same one.

I wouldn't want to blame the wrong cockroach when it was perhaps a different cockroach.
