A student at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Artesia was arrested on a drug charge by agents of the Pecos Valley Drug Task Force, the Carlsbad Current-Argus reported.
Tyler Wilson, 29, of Love Lock, Nev., was reportedly observed by another student to be in possession of methamphetamine, according to a news release.
An investigation determined that Wilson had 3.2 grams of meth, which he allegedly admitted he had brought with him from Nevada, the release said.
Back in the day, when I worked in the engineering department of a teaching hospital, I was astonished when a young electrician told me he was quitting to join the local police force. Good jobs with decent pay were hard to find at the time.
When I questioned his decision, he told me that he could always do electrical jobs on the side for cash – meanwhile he could score all the drugs he would ever want for free. So, I’m not exactly surprised at this case.
