Remember if you catch these people you have
to do a lot of paperwork and no-one likes
And if they were caught the judges would
only let them go so they could do it again.

why arrest the smugglers. we just take the dope and hop for more the next time. We dont have to arrest them, their friends back in mexico will take care of them for losing the dope. Ive seen many with no fingers.

Ever head of an open window? Im not talking about a web page window, Im talking about a small amount of low grade weed like 500 pounds that get sent in one direction so all local LE can go chase it and claim the fame while tons are going another route sometimes right under LE noses. It so easy to send a duck,(decoy) up I10 and call it in while the real load is going up 9 to hachita and back to I10. It was said: For Your Info:

That is more then true. Hidalgo and luna countys have made a many trips via back roads to deliver confiscated weed to other county LE for resale. Why is it that Hidalgo county neglects to mess with the meth labs in lordsburg? Its not because they are unaware, Could it be that your LE is in it for the cut? Theres a meth lab in Animas not 5000 feet from the school and its never even been hot. That just one of the Elbrock/ Evans enterprises that mysteriously slips through the cracks. No pun intended. Want to talk about Rodeo? Lonnie runs a nice little drug operations and Never even get stopped when he's racing up and down the road drunk. Some people just have pulled the right strings. Hatch reality??? let not go there right now.

They missed the big load, They always do. Just a window of oppertunity. Get LE in one area, and bring the dope through in another.
