NM: 11 arrested on hunting violations

November 23, 2009

Roosevelt County Sheriff’s deputies working with New Mexico Game and Fish Department officers arrested 11 people, most for hunting violations, over the weekend, according to a news release from the sheriff’s office.

Saturday, the agencies conducted a “deer decoy operation” in the county.

During the effort, the release said, 47-year-old Ramon Sena was arrested on a fourth-degree felony when officers found in his possession a firearm stolen in a burglary in Clovis.

Officers also arrested eight people for shooting at the decoy from the road and from vehicles, according to the release.

Game and Fish representatives also seized the carcasses for two mule deer bucks killed illegally on private land, the release said.

On Sunday, deputies and Game and Fish officers conducted a road block in Dora to check for Game and Fish violations. Only one such violation was found, but deputies arrested one person for DWI and another for violating his conditions of release from jail.
