    a citizen and national of Mexico illegally present in the United States. The subject and narcotics were turned over to the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).


    On Sunday, February 16, at approximately 10:30 p.m., Sierra Blanca agents conducted a vehicle stop along Interstate 10 to perform an immigration inspection. During the immigration inspection agents encountered
    Lorenzo Nino-Gomez a citizen and national of Mexico illegally present in the United States. During processing, records checks revealed Nino was a previously deported felon with a conviction of three counts of sexual penetration of a minor out of Chaves County District Court in Roswell, New Mexico. Nino will be processed according to applicable immigration laws.

Bash, Drug Enforcement Administration Special Agent in Charge Kyle W. Williamson, El Paso Division, and U.S. Border Patrol Chief Patrol Agent Matthew J. Hudak, Big Bend Sector.

According to the federal criminal complaint, on Monday evening, the defendants approached the Sierra Blanca Checkpoint Station, where a U.S. Border Patrol canine unit alerted on their vehicle. Agents asked the driver (Bray) to park the vehicle in the secondary inspection area for further investigation. A subsequent inspection of the vehicle by agents revealed the presence of approximately 157 pounds of marijuana inside several large duffle bags in the rear cargo area.


    The complaint affidavit further states that Robinson rented the vehicle in Los Angeles on Sunday and had arranged for a third individual in the vehicle, an Uber driver he had met in 2018, to drive him and Bray to Louisiana. When the trio reached El Paso, Robinson instructed Bray to begin driving. According to the complaint, when they approached secondary inspection at the Sierra Blanca checkpoint, Robinson asked the third individual to claim the marijuana and that Robinson said he would pay the third individual to do so. The third individual refused and told Robinson he/she would not have driven him had he/she known there were drugs in the vehicle.


    Upon conviction, the defendants face up to 20 years in federal prison.
