A state agent was arrested in the United States, the Attorney General’s office said.
According to the authorities, agent Octavio Andree, who was assigned to the Youth Specialized Unit, was dismissed after his arrest.
The agency denied the agent had any special assignments.
According to the authorities, the officer was dismissed after having numerous unjustified days off.
The agency said in a prepared statement state officials are collaborating with US authorities in the case.
According to the agency, any officer who violates the law will be brought to justice as no corruption act or misbehavior will be tolerated.
Media reports say the suspect was nabbed with methamphetamine while crossing to San Diego.
