Former Goodwell Officer Arrested By Feds
08/13/2010

Former Goodwell Reserve Officer Francisco Javier Reyes Luna was arrested on three federal firearm charges for alleged firearms sales to Mexican drug cartels.

Reyes was employed as a reserve officer with the Goodwell Police Department from March 2002 to May 2004. Pursuing a career in law enforcement, Reyes worked directly under Matt Boley, Chief Deputy for Texas County, as a reserve officer while attending college.

Reyes moved to Oklahoma City and went to work for the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics in 2007. He worked as an undercover agent and patrolled highways.

The Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives contacted the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics Monday night, letting them know they had custody of one of their agents.

The Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics would be conducting its own investigation and is cooperating with federal authorities.

The 29-year-old, who has been known by the different names including Frank, Franko and Javier, allegedly bought five A-K 47s from Outdoor America under a false name. Reyes is also accused of transferring a 50 caliber Barrett rifle to someone not licensed to own it. Reyes allegedly employed other people to buy the guns and send them to Mexico where it they have been traced to the hands of Mexican drug cartels.

He lived in downtown Oklahoma City at the Regency Tower and allegedly used his home and other places throughout Oklahoma to conduct his business.

A Stillwater man's suspicious death is also detailed in court documents. According to NewsOn6.com, ATF agents talked to the wife of the deceased man. She informed the agents that her husband bought guns for Reyes and following his death she was warned to "get our of the house because she was in danger," said the wife. The man who warned her also said that her husband was dead because he "didn't meet his quota for the month and owed money," continued the wife.

Reyes faced a federal court judge on Tuesday and was released on $25,000 bond. He is charged with three federal firearm violations that could carry five to 10 years in prison. Reyes is scheduled to be back in court on August 31, 2010 at 10am.
