Wow! They got them? I wonder who narked on them? These people will be out on bail soon, I'm sure, and back on the streets.$7,500 is a lot of money for Las Cruces! They need to lawyer up! I wonder who will better represent them, Jose Coronado, or Jose Arrieta? I think Arrieta's plate is full, but Coronado might be better to get them off! "Boys, it's time to Lawyer up!"

Garza you are so blind to think these are the real dealers..............this drug war is slowly attacking our personal freedoms. The real distributors and money makers are rubbing elbows with people you think are so great for your community, these are the expendables, 6 ounces.............. hardly a dealer. If the LCPD and DACDTF really want to make some busts they need to go to highrange and picacho hills. This is great for the media though

Does not matter who will get them off, Arrieta and Coronado are both very good attorneys, it has so much to do with the DA...once again...S Martinez......hurray....
Yes they will be out on bail, if not already...they are protected....

Where is the Fence ? The illegals will do anything to kill the America Life, We know of the corupt problems in Juarez, The Border needs more protection, not just Texas but New Mexico and Arizona has seen a jump in crime and drugs. Where is the Fence President Bush ? Bill Richardson send the New Mexico National Guard down to Southern New Mexico, What candicate Democrat or Republican will address this National Emergency in America ? What News Media will ask the ? Will New Mexico ever the help that we need from the Federal Government ? or Do We NEED MORE To ARM EVERY CITIZEN IN NEW MEXICO LIKE WE DI WITH THE MEXICAN AMERICAN WAR ? HISTORY WILL REPEAT ITSELF, Unless we resolve this problem.

I totally agree with this...the real drug dealers live well and believe me the people with money are the ones wanting and doing the drugs....these small dealers just deal with regular people. The big time dealers deal with doctors, lawyers, important people in the community. I have been to some parties so I know what I am talking about. Drugs are everywhere, look a little harder!! Its not just the mexicans or the thugs, its the people you would least expect. Sames goes for human traffiking look at Sonoma ranch or Picacho Hills, come on people crime is in the best of nieghborhoods......

onate and san andreas is the pot of gold for drug dealers poor kids dont have a chance when an adult offfers money to be had from a little powder or rock.then they use threats to keep em working,and how can you have bail with probation,never heard of a hold and no bail.now some kids are going to get hurt to find out who snitched,very weak and inept prosecution and p.o. office unless some of the money is going into civic hands?makes you go hum,
