Comments:  | Leave A Comment

ARIZONA – Anti-immigration Sheriff, Joe Arpaio, who is a Tea Party favorite due to his positions on immigration and racial profiling has an immigration problem of his own. Several officers in his office were arrested for allegedly running a heroin and human trafficking ring. AZ Central reports:

The group mostly moved heroin, according to investigators, and officials suspect each of the arrested sheriff’s employees played a crucial role in moving the drugs and hiding the illicit profits. Authorities say the ring moved about $56,000 worth of heroin a week through the Valley.

“The fight against drugs, illegal immigration and human trafficking is important not only to me but the citizens of Arizona,” Sheriff Joe Arpaio said. “That a deputy sheriff would provide information and associate with these drug and human traffickers is despicable.”
