EL PASO, TX - Sheriff's Deputies say they busted an organized crime ring in the Horizon/Sparks area.
The investigation started after deputies noticed a rash of burglaries in the Horizon area. We're told deputies went undercover to find out who was responsible and ended up finding a crime ring. They say stuff was being stolen and then taken to a house in Sparks where it was either sold or exchanged for drugs.
Deputies arrested 29-year old Victor Gomez, 27-year old Enrique Escobedo, 18-year old Jesus Orozco, and 18-year old Jonathan Cadena.
Deputies say all four men are key players within the organized ring and more arrests are likely to come.
