Willie Gandara, Jr. Will Resign From El Paso County Commissioners

A federal judge set a $50,000 cash bond for Gandara.  During today’s hearing, prosecutors played video and audio surveillance evidence they said shows Gandara, Jr. and Juan Canales engaged in illegal activity.  Canales was also arrested in connection with the investigation into Gandara, Jr.

Prosecutors say Gandara allegedly set up the exchange of large loads of marijuana which was stored at a property he owned in Socorro.  Gandara allegedly bragged in the video shown in court today about a small pipeline he has that runs loads of marijuana to Oklahoma and Chicago.
