El Paso, Texas, County Commissioner Guillermo Gandara Jr., who publicly had taken a hardline against drugs, was arrested by the DEA on drug trafficking charges, UPI reported.

The arrest, part of a multi-agency investigation, took place late Wednesday, DEA spokeswoman Diana Apodaca confirmed to the El Paso Times.

“DEA, [Immigration and Customs Enforcement], [the Internal Revenue Service], with the assistance of the FBI along with our local partners are conducting an ongoing operation, and we cannot release further details at this time,” she said, according to UPI.

UPI reported that Gandara is a candidate for state representative and made a statement:

“Legalizing drugs is the coward practice of combating cartels, it is an insult to our men and women in law enforcement, and the laziest form of parenting our children and youth about the effects of drugs,” he said.
