FBI Raids Lordsburg Police

The FBI is investigating Lordsburg Police. The Hidalgo County Herald reports a search warrant was executed yesterday. The report says the case stems from police handling of funds from the Department of Homeland Security’s Stonegarden border protection program. The program is a joint federal, state and local effort intended to keep border communities involved in keeping the area secure. For the time being, Lordsburg policing is shared by the Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Office and New Mexico State Police. No other details about the ongoing investigation have been released.
