Mr. Lipton

I received your information request regarding Operation Desert Snow today. I did not sign any agreement with the United States Marshal Service regarding this operation. My deputies did participate with the US Marshals on this round up and I assume they did make arrests in my County. However, the US Marshalls ran the operation in its entirety and I have no knowledge of what, if any, arrest were made as part of Operation Desert Snow. Please make your request to the US Marshals Office in Albuquerque, New Mexico attn. Conrad Candelaria. If they can furnish names of any persons arrested in Chaves County New Mexico, I would be happy to see if any of them were arrested by my staff.
