Former Donna ISD Police Officer Heads to Prison for Assisting “Rip Crew”

McALLEN, Texas – A 40-year-old Donna man has been ordered to federal prison following his conviction of conspiracy to possess with the intent to distribute more than 100 kilograms of marijuana, announced U.S. Attorney Ryan K. Patrick. Juan Fernando Mata pleaded guilty Jan. 9, 2019.

Today, U.S. District Judge Micaela Alvarez ordered Mata to serve 130 months in federal prison to be immediately followed by four years of supervised release.

At the hearing, Judge Alvarez considered Mata’s role in assisting members of a “rip crew” by conducting fraudulent traffic stops on drug load vehicles so that members of that crew could steal the controlled substances.

Specifically, the court considered Mata’s role in conducting traffic stops in January 2016 and another in May 2017, to assist members in stealing approximately nine kilograms of cocaine and approximately 400 pounds of marijuana, respectfully,

The court also heard allegations were made about Mata assisting members of a second “rip crew” by conducting similar activity.

In pronouncing the sentence today, Judge Alvarez noted that while the rip crew members’ conduct in conducting home invasions and carjackings was reprehensible, Mata’s conduct could also be described as such. The court stated how Mata’s actions eroded the public trust and the sense of security in knowing that law enforcement officers are individuals that can be turned to in the event of a home invasion or other criminal conduct. Judge Alvarez noted that when any law enforcement officer commits criminal conduct, it effects law enforcement as a whole and gives the area a bad name.

In considering the many letters of support for Mata, including the City of Donna Mayor and employees of Donna Independent School District, the court noted its concern with individuals viewing him as a role model. She stated that it speaks to poor principles when someone sworn to uphold and enforce the law completely disregards it.

Mata was permitted to remain on bond and voluntarily surrender to a U.S. Bureau of Prisons facility to be determined in the near future.

The FBI and Drug Enforcement Administration conducted the investigation with the assistance of Border Patrol and Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Office. Assistant U.S. Attorneys Roberto Lopez Jr. and K. Alejandra Andrade prosecuted the case.

DPS trooper in critical condition after being shot

EDINBURG, Texas — Authorities say a man suspected of shooting a Texas Department of Public Safety trooper as he investigated a vehicle collision in South Texas has been arrested after fleeing hours earlier.

DPS said just before 1 a.m. Sunday that a 24-year-old man from Edinburg had been arrested. DPS said Sunday morning that the trooper was out of surgery and was in stable but critical condition.

The trooper has been identified as Moises Sanchez.

DPS officials say a preliminary investigation shows that at about 8:45 p.m. Saturday the trooper approached a vehicle crash in Edinburg where the driver fled on foot. The trooper was then shot after locating the man believed to be the driver nearby. The suspect then fled again.

I went down to the Valley last year and it was unrecognizable - the whole border jumped to the other side. It was an agricultural paradise 40 years ago.

The cartels have billions to spend. If an agent or gov worker making 40K suddenly has someone offering $10k a month to look the other way, I bet 8 of 10 will take the money.

Is that a red or a blue district?
Not that it matters, just curious.

Also, cops / gov't officials going sour is nothing new. I think it happens in non shithole places as much or maybe even more so.

I remember a lawyer from that area of the country who told me that 90% of his criminal work is about getting the case to be tried by the "desired" judge.
South Texas is strong blue these days...
