New Mexico feds “crack down” on narcotics trafficking

It doesn't take much (quantity) to get thrown in a New Mexico jail for trafficking. The two biggest convictions this season totaled only in the ounces of meth for instance.


Two young men from Albuquerque were busted for heroin and methamphetamine trafficking. Joshua Greene, 18, and Kayleb Reyos, 21, were Drug Addiction arrested yesterday as the result of a DEA investigation into heroin and methamphetamine trafficking, according to a statement issued to this reporter. Feds say Greene and Reyos sold 2.25 pounds of heroin and three ounces of methamphetamine to undercover law enforcement agents during a series of transactions that netted bulk amounts of cash, a handgun, and drug paraphernalia.

An Arizona law enforcement source, on Drug condition of anonymity, told me heroin is part of most drug busts now, in Arizona and the nation. "If convicted of the charges in the criminal complaint, Greene and Reyos each face a statutory mandatory minimum of ten years and a maximum of life in federal prison," U.S. Attorney Damon Martinez said while clarifying, "Charges in criminal Medication Methadone complaints are merely accusations, and defendants are presumed innocent unless found guilty beyond a reasonable doubt."

The case was investigated by the Albuquerque office of the DEA, as part of Heroin and Opioid Prevention and Education (HOPE) which advocates prevention, education and treatment before incarceration.


But a Deming, New Mexico trafficker, Ramiro Trevizo-Granillo, got 156 months in the slammer for 30 grams of meth sales this week. He was charged with participating in a methamphetamine trafficking conspiracy and conspiracy to tamper with a witness, according to a statement from U.S. {methadone clinic|methadone clinics|methadone clinic Birmingham|Birmingham Alabama|Addiction treatmentAttorney Martinez provided to this reporter.

While he was detained, cops recorded a telephone conversation with another person during which Trevizo-Granillo discussed a scheme to prevent a witness from testifying against him. It was about "making a cooperator involved in his case 'disappear' so the cooperator would not testify against him." So, part of the sentence is for conspiracy, and Trevizo-Granillo remains in federal custody pending a sentencing hearing which has yet to be scheduled.


Homeland Security and the Deming Police Department teamed up on that bust. U.S. Attorney Mark A. Saltman in the Las Cruces Office is prosecuting the case.
