I, Nyvia Barraza,  have deemed request #19-1882 denied.
The following records requested are exempt from disclosure pursuant to NMSA 1978 Inspection of Public Records Act Section 14-2-1(A) 

We cannot permit inspection of these records because they are exempt from disclosure for the following reasons under the Inspection of Public Records Act: including NMSA 1978, § 14-2-1A)(4) (confidential law enforcement records); § 14-2-1(A)(8) (otherwise provided by law). If made public the requested records would seriously interfere with the effectiveness of a criminal investigation or prosecution. Additionally, the evidence and other records, if disclosed, would alert potential defendants to destroy evidence, coordinate stories, or flee the jurisdiction. The records contain witness testimony that is crucial to the criminal investigation and prosecution. Lastly, if produced those records might unfairly cast suspicion on or invade the privacy of an individual accused but not indicted for an alleged criminal offense. Right now my office is unsure how long we will continue to maintain this exemption, however, you are welcome to submit a new public records request for the same records at a later date. Additionally, you are also welcome to call my office and ask for an update on this investigation or submit an oral public records request.
