USDA contractor arrested for alleged cocaine smuggling
A contractor operating a U.S. Department of Agriculture vehicle was recently arrested by federal agents at the Texas border for drug and weapon-related charges, an article on Breitbart reported October 14.
Court documents revealed that Mario Guadalupe Saenz, 27, was arrested for attempting to distribute over 5kg of cocaine. Saenz, who was still under probation for felony convictions, was also charged with illegal possession of a firearm. Saenz was seen by authorities picking up a bag containing bricks of cocaine near the boarder while using the federal department’s van. He was later arrested by Homeland Security Agents and McAllen police at a nearby shopping center. Saenz may face a life sentence if found guilty of the charges.
