Description

KOAT-TV (Albuquerque) "found Wagon Mound town officials had authorized their two-man police force to illegally ticket motorists on the nearby interstate as a way of raising revenue for their small town in northeastern New Mexico. Their speed trap paid off. In a five-month period, police ticketed hundreds of motorists, many from out of state, and collected well over $10,000 dollars in fines and bond money. The officers improperly searched cars and luggage, harassed motorists, often made arrests and illegally set exorbitant bonds."
