Two Tijuana municipal police officers were arrested by Mexican state police during a crystal methamphetamine delivery on Sunday. The officers were arrested with 29 grams of the drug, only a block away from a municipal police station.

Samuel Tovar Fermín and Noé Cervantes Santillán became the fifth and sixth municipal police officers arrested in the past 15 days for drug charges. They were apprehending after state police overheard details of the transaction during a traffic stop of another suspect.

Gustavo Fabián Chávez Aguilar was pulled over by the state police for speeding in a car with California plates. During the stop, police overheard the suspects' Nextel phone on speakerphone give details of the drug transaction. This led to intercepting the two officers during the delivery of the drugs to a client.

The state police put the arrested officers on display for media late Sunday, giving statements detailing the arrests.

Oh boy, are they in trouble! They lost some meth that belonged to somebody else, and that "somebody else" expects to be paid for it. They could never hope to pay for that, and their prospects are slim. Please, please, follow up on this story and tell us how it comes out.
