FBI raids Lordsburg Police Department

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The FBI executed a search warrant at the Lordsburg Police Department, according to the Hidalgo County Herald.

The federal agency is working with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Office of Inspector General and New Mexico State Police.

The warrant is sealed, but the Herald has learned that this is in reference to federal Stonegarden funds.

Operation Stonegarden (OPSG) is a program that provides funds for joint efforts to secure the U.S. border.

The Lordsburg Police Department is essentially out of commission for the time being.

The Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Office and New Mexico State Police will be taking over their duties.
