A former Cameron County (Texas) Sheriff's deputy has pleaded guilty to taking a payment to help smuggle 13 semi-automatic firearms into Mexico that would reach a drug cartel, reports The Monitor.

Deputy Jesus A. Longoria resigned Nov. 1, after he was arrested and charged. He had been with the department since 2006.

Longoria was assigned to the Veterans International Bridge and Gateway International Bridge, where he tried to send 13 semiautomatic firearms into Mexico.

In exchange for waving through a vehicle transporting the guns, he was paid $4,000.
