LAPD Officer Arrested For Trying To Smuggle Immigrants Across Border

A member of the Los Angeles Police Department was arrested this week while attempting to smuggle illegal immigrants across the US-Mexico border; prompting local authorities to rethink immigration procedures for law enforcement throughout the region.

Mambasse Koulabalo Patara, 42, was arrested at about 1:30 a.m. Tuesday at the Border Patrol checkpoint on Interstate 8 near Pine Valley.

A Los Angeles Police Department officer was arrested Tuesday morning and charged with smuggling illegal immigrants into California, KCBS-TV reported. Agents later patted him down and found his service-issued gun in his waistband, the complaint reads.

At the checkpoint, Patara immediately told agents he is a US citizen and an off-duty police officer and showed them a Los Angeles Police Department identification card.


Patara's passengers-Fermin Lopez, and his nephew, German Ramirez- Gonzalez-admitted being citizens of Mexico and illegally in the United States, authorities said.

According to the criminal complaint obtained by Breitbart Texas, at the checkpoint, Patara appeared nervous during his exchange with agents, drawing their suspicion.

Lopez said he and Gonzalez crossed the border illegally, walked for about half a day to get to a casino, and convinced a stranger to give them a ride. "They've always just been a really nice family ever since my husband and I have lived here". The condition of the bond orders Patara to pay 10 percent cash deposit on the bond.
