Ensenada Municipal Cop Arrested in Orange County, Ca w 50 Lbs of Meth

Translated by Yaqui for Borderland Beat from: OC Register


A sheriff’s deputy arrested a Mexican police officer from Ensenada BC this week who had 50 pounds of methamphetamine in a hidden compartment inside his car, authorities said on Wednesday, Oct. 10.

The 41-year-old cop was driving on the northbound #5 Freeway when, at the Orange County Ca border with San Diego County, a deputy with the Orange County Sheriff’s Department Highway Interdiction Team pulled the man over for a Vehicle Code violation, authorities said.

The team primarily monitors the I-5, used by drug-trafficking organizations to smuggle narcotics north.

                            

During the traffic stop, sheriff’s spokeswoman Carrie Braun said, driver Miguel Patron was extremely nervous. Braun did not have details about what the initial traffic stop was for. The man said he was a police officer and gave the deputy his identification. “For someone being pulled over for a Vehicle Code violation, his behavior and demeanor didn’t fit,” Braun said.

Patron let the deputy search his vehicle, and a narcotics-detection dog alerted the deputy to the odor of drugs. The deputy did a detailed search and found a manufactured, hidden compartment in the car concealing the narcotics, authorities said.

Deputies arrested Patron, an officer in Ensenada, for transporting a controlled substance and using a hidden compartment to conceal it. He was taken to the nearest jail, in San Diego County.

According to inmate records, he was booked into the Vista Detention Facility and was being held in lieu of $200,000 bail.

The arresting deputy is part of the special team, started in 2008, with three deputies and three K-9s that try to disrupt the flow of drugs into Orange County. The team makes up to 1,500 vehicle stops a year and frequently finds hidden compartments in gas tanks, spare tires and ceilings and other spots concealing narcotics.

Given this situation, the Municipal Public Security Directorate of Ensenada issued a statement in which it stated that González Patrón is an active element of the corporation; but, at this time, he is absent from his work for a holiday period. However, they are already in contact with the San Diego authorities to continue the procedure established by the Public Safety Law of the State of Baja California.

  1. Every time they make a bust like this it's always the same thing 'unspecified traffic violation' or 'vehicle code violation' but they never say what. More then likely they have an informant that snitched about a northbound load, then they just pull you over for any old bullshit reason and that's all she wrote. Once they pull you over its game over. No matter what happens the drugs are gone, even if he beats the case in court he still doesnt get the drugs back and now he owes somebody a lot of money.

    Youd think a Mexican cop would be able to compose himself if hes moving a load like that. For my brief period of illegal income I would always do a full sweep of the vehicle for signals, brakelights, taillights and everything else before I started driving. I'd be amazed if these drivers carrying these loads didnt do that as well.

    1. The things is not everyone has that discipline or the drive to stay focused long enough on the task at hand. 9.11 was a clear example of how lax people can get. - Sol Prendido

    2. You can be hyper vigilant all night long but it is common knowledge that the Man will bust a tail light out; let air out of a tire, etc., etc. or say you made an illegal turn. Reasonable cause is easy to come by. When the intelligence identifies you, you are going down. Best strategy is to stay home and relax with the family.

    3. You are right. Shit, i do the same when i have had a little to drink... Also, never let someone know your route or exact time big arrival.

    4. 3:58; Maybe intelligence was told to sheriffs and while sheriffs are looking for the car, and then finding 20 kilos and being helped by more sheriffs; maybe another 1000 or more kilos went by in different cars. Could this be??

    5. They don’t need “reasonable cause” if there’s a snitch. The snitch IS the reasonable cause. After that, they can lie and say they pulled you over for a traffic violation, and it’s perfectly legal to tell that lie because when they go to court they will present the actual probable cause....which is the confidential informants testimony.

    8. Don't forget most of these asses are career criminals who have the same regard for traffic laws as they do for drug trafficking which is none. It doesn't surprise they drive like shit and break the law even though they know their trunks are full of dope

  3. The badge buys him nothing with CBP and US Law Enforcement. One US Customs Agent told me a few years ago the sight of a badge brings an auto response of a yellow placard beneath the windshield wiper; meaning a trip through secondary inspection.

  7. If he was driving a car with Baja license plates on, that's a red flag esp if he was alone.

  8. I've never seen an OCSD patrol on the 5 south of san clemente in my 42 years. So you're telling me the guy made it thru the border, thru the pendleton border check, and then an OC Sheriff pulled him over south of clemente, and it wasn't a CHP patrol? sounds kinda very specifically not random to me.

  9. It's always funny to watch vatos with Baja plates driving around SoCal.....
    Dudes sitting all stiff with their hands on the 10 o'clock and 2 o'clock position. Sweating and praying they don't get pulled over.

  15. @1015, that's cause you probably weren't snuggling 50 pounds of meth. And this guys work undercover, they see something worth looking at and call CHP to pull him over. Usually speeding, even if it's 5 over. I personally get passed by visiters with Mexican plates all the time. Them Mexican like speeding.
