LAREDO, Texas (AP) - A man and a woman from Mexico face up to 10
years in prison for illegally having about 27,000 rounds of
ammunition in South Texas.
Investigators in Laredo say 35-year-old Abraham Garcia-Perguero and
33-year-old Maria Isabel Rodriguez-Olivio pleaded guilty Monday to
weapons charges. No sentencing date was immediately set. Both remain
in custody.
Authorities say the suspected illegal immigrants had been living in
Laredo, where they ran a stop sign March 14 and were questioned by
police. Officers found the ammo in more than two dozen boxes in the
pickup truck.
Garcia-Perguero and Rodriguez-Olivio told investigators they had
picked up the ammo from a Laredo gun store. Prosecutors say the pair
expected to be paid about $500 to deliver the items to a designated
pickup spot.

Deputy on leave after theft of vehicle, assault rifle

HARGILL — Sheriff Lupe Treviño placed a deputy on paid administrative
leave Monday after the officer shot at a fleeing suspect who stole
his patrol unit and personal assault rifle early Sunday morning.

The theft happened while the Hidalgo County sheriff's deputy
responded to a call regarding criminal mischief at a home in Hargill,
according to a news release from the agency.

The deputy arrived at the home in the 29000 block of Gill Street
about 1:45 a.m. and left the patrol unit, which he had parked along
the street with its engine on, to speak to the victim who had called
and to collect information for his report.

A man wearing a white shirt and jeans walked toward the officer and
the victim, but stopped at the unit, the release stated. The suspect
then opened the driver's side door, sat down and closed it behind
him. The deputy ran to the vehicle, managed to open the door, but
could not pry the suspect out of the unit. The suspect eventually put
the vehicle in drive and sped off, but not before the officer shot at
the fleeing suspect multiple times.

Authorities did not report any injures in connection with the shooting.
"What disturbs me the most is that the vehicle was left running and
the weapon was not secured," Treviño said. "But perhaps more
important than that, is the discharging of a weapon at a vehicle that
was fleeing."

Officers found the vehicle about five hours later in an open field
near the intersection of Wilson Avenue and Farm-to-Market Road 490 —
less than a mile from where it was originally taken.

Investigators, however, did not recover the deputy's personal assault
rifle, a .223-caliber, semi-automatic AR 15.

Authorities identified Alex Valdez, 22, as a possible suspect in the
theft. Deputies detained him for questioning, but released him
pending further investigation, the release stated. Investigators did
not release further information.

The Sheriff's Office's Internal Affairs division initiated an
investigation on possible violations of policies regarding the theft
of the vehicle and weapon, as well as the discharging of the firearm,
Treviño said.

Chapter five of the Sheriff's Office policy handbook prohibits
leaving a vehicle unsecured when unattended to prevent weather damage
and theft, he added.

Authorities did not release the deputy's name, but will do so if
further disciplinary action is taken. That decision could come as
early as next week, Treviño said.
"Now we have a weapon floating in the community that shouldn't be
there," Treviño said.

Note: another rare report of the 5.7 being used. For the non
gunnies, the ammo available here is the varmint load, not the armor
piercing. Rapid expansion, little penetration. Original AP ammo
only available to governments.
