ESPAÑOLA, N.M. (AP) — The undersheriff of a New Mexico sheriff’s office is the subject of an investigation following the arrest of the county’s sheriff in an obstruction case.
KOB-TV reports special prosecutor Andrea Reeb said this week she is looking into the actions of Rio Arriba Undersheriff Martin Trujillo in connection with a May 21 episode.
The Española Police Department and Taos County Sheriff’s Office were attempting on that say to serve a warrant for a cell phone from Rio Arriba County Sheriff James Lujan.
A Taos County deputy says Trujillo ordered Rio Arriba County sheriff’s deputies to draw their guns on the investigators.
The Rio Arriba Sheriff’s Office declined to comment.
