El Paso cop busted for cocaine trafficking

Monica Garcia, 24, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to maintain a drug-involved premise.
She was fired last year after a federal indictment. Garcia used her position as an El Paso cop to conduct countersurveillance and run license plates to identify undercover police vehicles near her stepfather’s residence and stash house.
Charges against Garcia came after DEA agents seized over $14k and 1.2 kg of cocaine in raids. She faces up to 20 years in prison.
