Drug Task Force Officers Arrested
Espinoza 2nd left-Trevino 2nd right

Two Mission narcotics investigators have been arrested alongside other local law enforcement officers in a federal corruption probe focusing on drug loads stolen from the criminals they had been tasked with taking down, law enforcement officials told The Monitor. 
Federal agents Wednesday arrested Jonathan Treviño, son of Hidalgo County Sheriff Lupe Treviño, and Alexis Espinoza, son of Hidalgo police Chief Rudy Espinoza, three area law enforcement officials confirmed.

Federal agents searched the Mission Police Department, where they searched and seized narcotics investigators' “documents and other items” late Wednesday evening, Mission police Chief Martin Garza said. Two unmarked white pickup trucks with tinted windows were seen leaving the police department as local television stations arrived after 9 p.m.

“The actions of these two officers should not detract from the actions of the 146 officers that devote their lives and careers to the department,” Garza said.

Garza, who did not identify the investigators or confirm their arrests, said they have been suspended pending the outcome of the federal investigation. The chief declined to disclose any details about the federal case.

Agents have obtained at least seven arrest warrants in the case, with at least four law enforcement officers believed to be in federal custody Wednesday night, a law enforcement officer familiar with the case said.

At least two others targeted in the federal probe are believed to be Hidalgo County sheriff's deputies assigned to the narcotics division, two law enforcement officials said.

“They’re buddies,” one law enforcement official said of the Mission officers. Jonathan “has gone unsupervised since the get-go.”

Details of the investigation, headed by the FBI, remain unclear. No federal court filings detailing search or arrest warrants, nor any open criminal case files, had been filed late Wednesday night in U.S. District Court in McAllen.

Spokespersons for the FBI and Immigration and Customs Enforcement declined to comment Wednesday night. 

“I can't confirm or deny anything,” FBI spokesman Erik Vasys said.

Several attempts to reach Sheriff Treviño and Espinoza, formerly a sheriff’s captain before becoming Hidalgo’s top cop in October, were unsuccessful Wednesday night.

The federal probe involves a local task force between Hidalgo County and Mission police known as the Panama Unit, two law enforcement officials said.

“It’s just going to get real, real nasty, real, real quick,” an area law enforcement investigator said of fallout in Mission police and the Sheriff’s Office.

Jonathan Treviño works as a narcotics investigator paid by Mission police assigned to the Panama Unit. Alexis Espinoza also works alongside the sheriff’s son at Mission police as a task force officer assigned to ICE.

Widespread allegations of wrongdoing involving Jonathan Treviño have circulated among local police departments for years, but they have failed to see light — until Wednesday.

“With all the problems he’s had, they should have kicked Jonathan out years ago,” the official said.

Federal agents have been investigating the local task force since at least July, focusing on reports of drug loads stolen from traffickers only to be resold on the black market.

Whether the probe into the younger Treviño will have political ramifications for his father remains to be seen.

Re-elected last month, Sheriff Treviño has maintained close relationships with the federal agencies locally and nationally, where he serves as vice chairman of the Southwest Border Task Force, a 20-member advisory panel launched by Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano in 2009.

Jonathan Treviño has worked at Mission police since April 2006, earning a salary of $41,204, according to city salary records released to The Monitor in March 2012. No record for Espinoza exists on that document.

“Everybody knew that kid was dirty,” the investigator said of Jonathan Treviño. “It was just a matter of making a case.
“It’s been a long, long time coming.”
Court Documents Allege:
 
In August, the FBI learned of the Panama Unit helping distribute narcotics, a criminal complaint states. In September, a confidential source told agents that a drug trafficking organization was looking for corrupt cops who could escort drug loads, the complaint states.

That led to a meeting Oct. 19, when the confidential source told Duran that the organization was going to move a vehicle with 20 kilograms of cocaine from McAllen through the Falfurrias checkpoint, the complaint states. Duran, alongside an another unnamed person gave escort for a vehicle they believed had 20 kilograms of cocaine inside, the complaint states.

November 1, Espinoza met with a confidential informant and agreed to escort a load of cocaine; he was paid $1,500 as a down payment.
November 2, ICE agents set up an undercover operation where the source drove a car loaded with drugs from McAllen to Weslaco, which Espinoza, in a Mission police vehicle, and Duran were supposed to escort another drug load.

Espinoza was paid another $1,500 for his role. After that escort, agents said Espinoza and Duran met at Sam's Club along Jackson Road in McAllen, where they received another $2,000.

November 9, ICE set up a similar operation, where Espinoza was paid a total of $4,000 for his role in escorting the drugs.

Police Chief Supports Federal Agents That Arrested His Son
Espinoza [swearing in ceremony 10/12]
Hidalgo Police Chief Rudy Espinoza said he fully supports federal agents after they arrested his son and three other local lawmen on drug conspiracy charges.

The chief's son, Alexis Espinoza, and Jonathan Trevino, Fabian Rodriguez and Gerardo Duran are accused of being part of a scheme to protect drug loads in exchange for money. The four men were taken into federal custody.

Espinosa and Trevino were fired from the Mission Police Department on Thursday. Rodriguez and Duran are deputies with the Hidalgo County Sheriff's Department.

Trevino is the son of Hidalgo Sheriff Lupe Trevino.

Rudy Espinoza issued a media release about his son's arrest.

"I am in support of the federal agencies, as well as any local police units that are involved in the federal probe," the statement said.
"It is unfortunate that a close family member is involved in these proceedings ... but as a longtime supporter and enforcer of the justice system, I believe that all allegations and police investigations must proceed with clear definition and with proper cause," the statement said.

Federal documents show that immigration officers working in Harlingen received a tip about Alexis Espinoza in August.
Federal agents spent approximately three months conducting undercover operations. They moved several kilos of cocaine through the Rio Grande Valley. Records show those agents paid thousands of dollars to Alexis Espinoza and the other three lawmen for scouting and escorting drug loads to their drop-off points.

The thing about these pigs is amazing the low amount of money they get, I mean really a few thousand? It's not like they are on the street homeless and need food, these are "educated" so to speak with upstanding families and earning a decent wage, risking all that for 4,000 here and there. At least their gig is over and they were exposed, law enforcement that are shady are right up there with murderers, rapists and kidnappers, abuse of power taking advantage of the position they are in to harm others need life sentences.

I really think the drug war can succeed. But to succeed they have to seal the border, really start deporting illegals. By sealing the border I mean putting layers of razor wire, underground sensors, electric fences etc.... Posting US Army infantry units with orders to shoot to kill would also be a nice touch. Otherwise this crap will never stop. You can't have borders like we have now, it's a joke how easy it is to get in the country illegally. If the USA doesn't control immigration, who does???? Think about it....The Mexican CARTELS control immigration now. And you are seeing the result.....more drugs....More corruption...more crime. I really don't buy the legalization argument, the health crisis it would cost would be staggering. Quit playing politics with immigration which affects so many other things...... Our leaders all the way up to the president suck and are spineless. They are not in it for the country, they are in it for what they can get out of it....they SUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Enforce our immigration laws!!!!!!!!!!!!!

"When will people admit that the cartels influence and ability to transport drugs directly corresponds to the legal and illegal immigration of the Mexicans in the states?" i guess the same time white america admits their demand for drugs fuel the drug war. not racist, just a fact!

ppl love to blame immigration to justify their prejudices yet theyre fewer and fewer crossings and more and more drugs here. ppl crossing drugs dont stay, they leave their product and go back to mex. if german americans were on the border they would be facilitating the drug trade on this side, too. we are talking millions of dollars and theres no industry or jobs here, its inevitable some will get into the drug trade...with a pop nearly 90% hispanic, the majority caught will be hispanic...and jeez, almost everyone in the valley is related somehow. im related to gringos but i dont use drugs...as much as gringos love their drugs, it doesnt reflect on me.

Stop blaming the profession and start realizing it's the individuals who are at fault. Becoming a police officer or working in law enforcement is like anything else...it's a job!

Hidalgo County has always been dirty. Everyone tries to screw someone in some form or fashion down here. I’d say 75% of the county, elected officials and employees are dirty. If they piss tested the entire county, there would be an overnight explosion of available positions at the court house. Everyone knows the rumors and yet their votes still get bought for a taco during election season. What makes it even worse is that our local media covers it up, too. Sure they break the story for the first week, and then the story just disappears. Whatever happened to the court coordinator and assistant coordinator that were selling dismissals in County Court 5? What was Judge Aparicio being investigated for before he killed himself? Even more recently, why are there no more details about the Carla Davis, the black court reporter that was fired when she told HR about the breakfast club and people falsifying their time sheets? Now, Lupe’s son gets busted by the Feds! Give it sometime and this story will just fade away, too. Our county has gone to Hell! I wonder if Lupe still thinks that there’s no spillover? Don’t blame me I didn’t vote for him.

The USA is very lucky to have many honest, hard0working agents in law enforcement. This story is about two bad apples. Don't judge all LEO's by the actions of two. In fact, the story shows that Federal agents were working this case for a long time - our system does work the way it's supposed to. I am encouraged by the outcome.

oh that is a different scenario. I thought it was a blanket statement and could not agree with that, however I have to say I can't argue with your analysis of the culture of Mexico, accepting what people know is wrong. the "what can I do" approach. Even good people, no matter.

You are correct the mindset of good people and the corruption that permeates every segment of society before any hope of a thriving democracy can exist in Mexico.

Because I am a 501C3 I can have a business under the NAFTA treaty in Mex, US or Canada, exempt from taxes. I wanted to open school supply stores bringing in everything from pencils to uniforms and bicycles. I am an importer (pacific rim) so I can do it on the cheap. All proceeds would go to our org. and kids would get dirt cheap supplies. But my advisors in Mex said don't do it, I would be extorted big time. So I did not.

a real shame.

2:44 pm - you are right that I only skimmed the article and did not read all the details. But even if it's 4 law enforcement officers and not 2... it's still just a few bad apples. The majority of our US officers are good people - and we are lucky to have them. I hope that does not change.

I expect the cartels to try to penetrate weak points along the US/Mex border - and at major smuggling transit points inside the USA. it will happen. they have big money. those LEO's whose hearts are corrupt will fall. but most US cops are still good people - don't be cynical about them. If anything, pray that they keep their integrity.

i don't say these words easily. i know countries overseas where honest cops are few, and 90% of them are corrupt. imagine trying to be a straight cop in that kind of environment - it takes rare and exceptional courage. But there are still a few good men and women who do it.

For all the good cops - I am grateful. They are a blessing!!

@2:44pm no one has to tell me hispanic families support each other no matter what... i was raised that way but i also brought my wife from mexico legally on a fiance visa. i have also lived in mexico... and without a doubt, the same ppl that bring in drugs also bring ppl across but to imply the drug trade success in the us is based on family ties is just wrong... sure, hispanic families generally dont rat each other out but not every recently arrived mexican family are involved in the drug trade. i know plenty of mexicanos that just got here and not one is involved in the drug trade...nor is anyone in my wife's family or extended family...nor anyone they know. while someone in a family might bring someone into the drug business, they are very few drug trafficking families where everyone is involved...they do exist but the success of the drug trade isnt based on mexican families. the drug trade uses the latino community to blend in and hide in...other latinos in the community and their ties with each other is what makes the drug trade successful here. blaming mex families for the drug trade success helps perpetuate the myth that the majority of mexicans use drugs...and thats not the case

Any man who carries a gun and gets to tell me how to live is scum. But yes I am a criminal cuz I fight crime with crime. So did Ghandi when he walked to the sea to make salt. I say that I am a true patriot more than a criminal. This is most definitly a war. Some of the enemies are in clear view. Some are not. All cops are santioned criminals. Its the nature of the beast. So yes, you cant roast enough of them for me. The criminal.

@3:26 I am not a gulfo cheerleader.....everyone is paying cuota now....It is my understanding that the whore houses have always paid it......I'm not interested in screwing underage girls so I don't frequent the Zona......I did not say the gulfo do not extort or kidnap......I said at one time they did not........so go back to the zona and support the human trafficking and snort another line........chow

The Zetas are the ones that always take responsibility for and actually brag about...it's called heating up the plaza....they want to spread fear and they're doing a good job of it....they were ran out of Reynosa after the split and M40 has repeatedly put up signs vowing revenge.......

When they put sheriff Brigido Marmolejo in federal prison, the sob did all his time crying like a baby. When I remember this guy I just get sick. He was supposed to be one of the toughest sheriffs in the Texas Valley, and in prison he cried louder than a quinceañera begging for some cock.

More dirty cops in the valley! Im not saying it doesnt happen anywhere else because it does, but every couple of months some cop gets busted there. Thats why more agencies need to start giving polygraphs and regular piss test to all employees, especially upper ranks and task force members, this is embarrasing to the good cops out there trying to make a difference. Police academies should focus on good recruits not just the money!

It will never be 100% clean ladies and gentlemen.The dollar is a very powerful item. Call it corruption,call it what you may. It isa network with a system beyonds nobodys control infiltrated in all levels of law enforcement.

Anything for money! These fucking idiots are just as bad as the cartels. Jack asses!

this story is an ongoing affair. officers who got nervous have resigned others terminated.
more arrests coming and the tangled web of cartel cooperation will be shown under a light.
BB needs to sticky articles in some location so that they don't get buried and forgotten.
I can't be the only one who feels this ought to happen.
some sub category maybe "USA Law enforcement and cartel smuggling" or you guys come up with a sticky title.

I agree........where is the national news media with this story???????? Sheriff Trevino is supposedly Obama's point man here in the Texas valley and Obama's much quoted "expert" on there is no spillover violence......we talk about Mx lack of reporting on corruption and look at the lack of news coverage this has had..........of course its probably not politically correct to look into the epidemic of corruption of the "Hispanic law enforcement" on our borders..........call in the national guard Gov Perry.......remember the Alamo!!!!!!!!

More arrests are coming very soon,trust me I know.Don't trust anybody in texas law enforcement,or you will end up in a box no matter what.
