Investigators: Officer foils plot to mail pot to jail


EL PASO, Texas -- Investigators say an officer processing mail sent to the El Paso County Jail Annex found marijuana inside one of the letters.

That set off a United States Postal Inspections Service investigation that officials say led to the sender: Benjamin Borunda.

Detectives obtained a warrant for Borunda's arrest. He's been charged with the manufacture/delivery of a controlled substance.

Borunda was taken into custody by the El Paso County Sheriff's Office Narcotics on June 16 and booked into the El Paso Detention Facility.

  1. Here’s a little bit of news “The newspaper also reported that a third-offense DWI in 2018 for Etsitty was dismissed by a McKinley County magistrate judge in 2019.”
    Guess who was the judge that dismissed the case?
    Sandoval-Soland. Democrat. She ran unopposed in the general election, receiving 100 percent of the vote. Not there anymore.
    Just did her damage and ran, like all demoKKKrat cowards and parasites.
