By Dareh Gregorian https //www nbcnews com/politics/2020-election/arizona-congressional-candidate-suspends-campaign-after- drug-overdose-n1142211 Excerpt: An Army veteran who was running for Congress in Arizona suspended his campaign Monday after he suffered a drug overdose. "Today, I have suspended my campaign for the US House of Representatives and am seeking treatment for substance abuse disorder," Chris Taylor, a City Council member in Safford, told NBC News in a statement. "I will fully cooperate with local authorities on any matters arising from my recent relapse and overdose."Taylor's decision to drop out of the Republican primary in Arizona's 1st Congressional District was first reported by The Arizona Republic and the Gila Herald. Taylor, a married father of two who served two combat tours in Afghanistan, had struggled with opioid addiction in the past. His campaign website says he founded a nonprofit in 2014 called Desert Eagle Addiction Recovery "dedicated to helping individuals, especially fellow combat veterans, suffering from drug addiction." In his statement Monday, Taylor said he "recently relapsed after having so many solid years in sobriety." "I have to figure out where I went wrong," he said. "Thankfully I have every resource available to me through the Veterans Affairs Administration and I have the strongest support system one could dream of. "The only thing I can do is face this head on in complete humility and put one foot in front of the other so that I can get the help needed to be the father and husband that my family deserves," he added. Taylor was one of three Republicans hoping to challenge Democratic Rep. Tom O'Halleran in the fall. https //www nbcnews com/politics/2020-election/arizona-congressional-candidate-suspends-campaign-after- drug-overdose-n1142211 Florida GOULD AND ROYER/Florida - also in Military Criminality/Active Duty 2018-2019/Florida/Cocaine/Decorated Green Berets/Colombia-Florida smuggling Trussville Tribune 2019/01/02 Florida decorated army veteran confessed to drug trafficking https://www.trussvilletribune.com/2019/01/02/florida-decorated-army-veteran-confessed-to-drug-trafficking- 40-kilograms-of-cocaine-to-the-u-s/ New Mexico CHAVEZ, Claudio/Albuquerque, NM 2020Drug Trafficking Albuq.

MARINE VETERANS Marines Veterans Drugs California DEMPSEY, AUSTIN TRAVIS Task and Purpose 2019/09/30 Exclusive: Ex-Marine pleads guilty to smuggling more than 150 pounds of meth and cocaine from Mexico By Paul Szoldra https://taskandpurpose.com/news/marine-smuggle-meth-mexico Excerpt: A former Marine corporal has pleaded guilty to smuggling more than 150 pounds of methamphetamine and cocaine from Mexico into the United States and will be sentenced in November. Austin Travis Dempsey, 22, was arrested by Customs and Border Protection agents in Calexico, California soon after midnight on Oct. 28, 2018 as he tried to enter the U.S. in a Ford F-150 pickup truck. When asked why he had been in Mexico, Dempsey said he was visiting a friend he had served with in the Marine Corps, according to a federal complaint filed in California's Southern District. The agent then tapped on the truck's gas tank and heard a solid noise "he found abnormal," the complaint said. CBP then scanned the vehicle with a dog and an x-ray machine and found "anomalies" inside the doors and the tank, where they later discovered a total of 130 packages — 112 which tested positive for meth, and 18 others that tested positive for cocaine, the complaint said. https://taskandpurpose.com/news/marine-smuggle-meth-mexico DOMINGUEZ RAMIREZ, JR/San Diego Cocaine: pipeline, Mexican drug kingpin, San Diego area San Diego Union Tribune 2019/02/26 Dominguez Indictment.

By Jessica Lussenhop https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-44402948 Jenkins must serve three years of supervised release after his custodial sentence. He was convicted on multiple counts including racketeering, robbery and falsification of records. Jenkins pleaded guilty in January and admitted taking part in at least 10 robberies of Baltimore citizens, planting drugs on innocent people and re-selling drugs he stole from suspects on an almost daily basis, including heroin, cocaine and prescription painkillers. Baltimore Sun 2018/01/05 Baltimore Gun Trace Task Force leader pleads guilty, expresses remorse. By Justin Fenton https://www.baltimoresun.com/news/maryland/crime/bs-md-ci-jenkins-pleads-guilty-20180105- story.html Detective Momodu Gondo, who has pleaded guilty in the case, testified in a federal drug trial last fall that Jenkins “was like an animal, just going about investigations the wrong way.” Levin said Jenkins served honorably in the Marine Corps and then the Baltimore Police Department for a number of years. “He and others were responsible for seizing hundreds if not thousands of illegal firearms and getting them off the streets of Baltimore City. At some point, regrettably, something changed,” Levin said. “Whether that’s a result of something that happened during his time in the military, something during his time in the Police Department, or as a result of the death of his son, remains uncertain.” The case may be the biggest corruption scandal to hit the department. The alleged crimes took place during a federal civil rights review of the Police Department, and stretch back years to when some of the officers were in other units in different parts of the city. The fallout from the indictments has included hundreds of dropped court cases that relied on the word of the officers, with the public defender’s office saying thousands of cases have been compromised. https://www.baltimoresun.com/news/maryland/crime/bs-md-ci-jenkins-pleads-guilty-20180105- story.html DELEON JR.

Several Marines involved San Diego Union Tribune 2018/02/16 Marines convicted on sexual assault, child porn charges, other cases pending. By Carl Prine https://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/military/sd-me-court-martials-20180216-story.html Prosecutors have convicted several Marines in recent weeks for crimes including rape and child pornography, and dozens of similar cases continue to percolate through the military criminal justice system. The cases are coming to light due to a series of Freedom of Information Act requests filed by The San Diego Union-Tribune over the past four months. Documents released by the Marines reveal some of the most serious cases tied to senior leaders like ex-Chief Warrant Officer E. DeLeon Jr. At a Camp Pendleton court-martial last month, a military judge convicted DeLeon of possessing and distributing child pornography. Although the judge sentenced him to seven years behind bars, a pretrial agreement capped the Marine’s imprisonment at five years. https://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/military/sd-me-court-martials-20180216-story.html NAVY VETERANS BROWN, ERIC BRIAN Kidnapping, Murder of Ashanti Billie Retired Navy veteran charged with kidnapping, murder of Ashanti Billie https://wtkr.com/2017/11/08/family-member-says-arrest-has-been-made-in-ashanti-billie-case/ An arrest has been made in the abduction and death of 19-year-old college student Ashanti Billie.
