HOUSTON — A Customs and Border Protection officer was arrested for using his credentials to transport six kilograms of cocaine to Houston in exchange for $6,000 and expenses, police say.
The officer used his badge and official authority to get around the security screening checkpoint at McAllen International Airport, U.S. Attorney Don DeGabrielle said Friday.
Once past the security area, Flores met with a confidential source in an airport restroom and delivered the bag containing the cocaine, police say.
Ramiro Flores Jr., 36, was arrested at Bush Intercontinental Airport on Thursday upon arrival from McAllen,Texas.
Flores is expected to appear before a judge in Houston Friday.

I cannot believe the verdict for Quintero…and he actually sat there smiling…the jury should be ashamed of themselves. That jerk isn’t even a legal, and will be fed and taken care of for the rest of his life…probably what he wanted in the first place…Shame on you jury!

I hope the members of that jury never need a police officer. They may have a long wait. Would they be so forgiving if Quintero had killed a member of THEIR family?

I cant believe this! When are the hard working, law abiding citizens gooing to say enough and put these criminals where they really belong? SIX FEET UNDER! Actually, I believe in cremation. Why waste good real estate?

What?! When are the law abiding, hard working people of society going to get fed up with living in fear and just put these criminals where they belong? SIX FEET UNDER No wait, since I believe in cremation…why waste good real estate we could build family parks so the kids can finally feel safe to go outside and play?
