Arizona: Ajo Border Patrol agent arrested and charged with drug trafficking

TUCSON, Ariz. – A Buckeye, Arizona, man was arrested Sunday on multiple counts of conspiracy and possession with intent to distribute controlled substances. The charges resulted from an investigation led by the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Southern Arizona Corruption Task Force, significantly assisted by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations, NATIVE Task Force in Sells, and the Drug Enforcement Administration.

Carlos Victor Passapera Pinott, 53, was charged by complaint, and had his initial appearance Monday before United States Magistrate Judge Leslie A. Bowman of the District of Arizona.

According to the complaint, Passapera is a U.S. Border Patrol agent assigned to the Tucson Sector Ajo Border Patrol Station. On Aug. 9, at approximately 3:15 a.m., Passapera left his residence and drove south to a remote area of the border west of the Lukeville Port of Entry. Passapera then drove to Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, where he loaded two duffel bags into another vehicle. Law enforcement agents stopped the driver of that vehicle after it left the airport, and searched the duffel bags. 


The bags contained multiple packages of substances that field-tested positive for the characteristics of cocaine (21 kilograms), heroin (1 kilogram), and fentanyl (1 kilogram). The bags also contained approximately 350,000 pills. A sample from the pills field-tested positive for the characteristics of fentanyl.

Law enforcement agents took Passapera into custody later that day while executing a search warrant at his residence. During the search, agents found approximately $329,000 in U.S. currency in Passapera’s residence, and an additional $40,000 in the vehicle Passapera used to transport the illegal narcotics.

Convictions for conspiracy and possession with intent to distribute controlled substances carry a maximum penalty of life in prison, a mandatory minimum penalty of ten years, and up to a $10,000,000 fine.

A criminal complaint is simply the method by which a person is charged with criminal activity and raises no inference of guilt. An individual is presumed innocent until competent evidence is presented to a jury that establishes guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. The Public Integrity Section of the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Tucson is handling the prosecution.

    2. @7:22 before speaking on BLM i sure hope you know who created the organization in the first place before you start talking about terrorists because when it comes down to terrorists you have no idea who is the #1 terrorist in this world . I'm sure you are living in it too .

  3. Ok if they found that much in cash he definitely moved and let through hundreds If not thousands of kilos. They usually never find that much cash sitting like that I’m assuming it was his earnings of a months worth because cash immediately goes down south when it’s from the cartel just assuming

    1. You think they would’ve let him walk away lol. He would’ve disappeared.

    2. Sad but true he kept his pension before he was fired he resigned and was eligible to retire due to time in service and age. That bothers me a lot but it is called due process every one is assumed inocente until he has his day in court. So he could not be fired and was smart enough to resign. BS right... but that's the law..... they should through the book and give gim the maximum life in supermax send the message for the rest .... my opinion

    yeah that sounds like a place you'd wana live...authoritatrian nightmare get the heck outts here with this "usa needs to be more like china" nonsense...careful wishing death on others it has a way of coming back to you when you put that out there...just ask all those people in china who were cut off from society thru the social credit score system or simply disappeared when their views didnt align with Mow say Zhe Jin Pingo's idea of 'harmonious'....yikes


    i dont take drugs dont care them either and its clear as day to see that the war on shrugs is an fn disaster. legalize and regulate or take steps to decriminalize and allow for personal production problem solved...who wants to live in a society whose idea of "harmonious" means micro managed control of every aspect of its citizens lives....yeah no thanks enjoy serfing the plantation. keep that coat nice and clean for its almost time to sheer them sheep.


    "first they came for the drug users, and we did nothing. then they came for the protesters of corona politik, we still did nothing. then they came for we and soon after me....there was no one left to do anything about it."

    your walking blind thru tall grass, like advocating violence as a solution to non violent issues, snakes and vipers are most dangerous when you dont see them, tread lightly amigo...tread lightly...thanks

    1. @10:39 I couldn't have said it any better myself. The war on drugs is a huge failure but the government makes to much money on it unfortunately.

      Delete
    2. 10:25 the government does not make money off the War on drugs or off any other War, they just spend the people's treasury and their children's lives to fight for profits that go to the well connected...those well connected people don't even pay taxes ever!
