The Truth?! Some Simply Can’t Handle the Truth

The Eye received this letter from Erika Bryan whose husband, Shaun Bryan, was at the center of an FBI investigation. During the investigation some claim that the FBI lied and falsified factual information and refused to obtain legitimate and bona-fide evidence that would have cleared former Albuquerque Police Officer, Brad Ahrensfeld, who was charged and prosecuted during the investigation.

As you read through Ms. Bryan’ letter, it alludes that this entire event was a result of political corruption within the City of Albuquerque. Ms. Bryan Claims that the “11th floor” did not want Darren White to become Chief Public Safety Officer. Most commonly, the “11th floor” is known as the Mayor’s Office. The Mayor at that time was Martin J. Chavez, who ran unsuccessfully against current Mayor Berry after filing a law suit that allowed him to run for a third term. Ms. Bryan also claims that two APD officers also played an intricate part in this fiasco.

The information below references “SID.” The acronym SID stands for Special Investigation Division. SID is a division that is part of APD.

The letter also suggests that Chief Ray Schultz had knowledge about this fiasco. After the fact, we can see that nothing was done by Schultz to investigate this matter appropriately.

Below is Erika Bryan’s letter:

As a citizen of this great city, a mom, wife, charity organizer, business owner this is the story of the facts so many of you want to know so here we go. On Sept 23, 2009, sixteen Federal agents showed up at our family business with a blank unsigned search warrant. Along with the illegal warrant two FBI agents, SA Drew Mcandless, and SA Marcus Washington sat in my husband’s office “while the rest waited outside” and told me and my husband that they had our mechanic on video “smuggling kilos of cocaine” using our inventory at our dealership to commit these crimes. At the time our business handled the SID “New Systems” (shell company name) contract in which we bought and serviced the SID cars. Immediately red flags went up. How could this be happening not only under our eyes but also under APDs eyes since we did the service for numerous undercover officers daily? Little did we know the FBI is allowed to tell you any lie they chose, and play by their own rules. Needless to say there was no video or drugs and in the course of Brads trial they admitted that this was a “rouge” and they lied in the name of justice.

That point aside the reason I write to the EYE today is not to discuss the gross misconduct of the US government in the way they set our family business up or the MANY ways that they tried and continue to try to ruin Brad Ahrensfelds life, I write today to discuss text messages.

Kathy, Darren Whites now-wife at the time this nightmare began was a close friend of mine. As soon as this nightmare began ” Kat” began texting me and updating me as to what was going on and being said. As best as I can recall, in the hundreds of texts that exist, kat tells the story as to what really happened to us and by proxy Brad. From the beginning she started sending that Darren was infuriated and was going to get to the bottom of what was going on. Quickly the nature of the texts changed from being upset to naming names. … starting with Chris Bakkus. Darren had found out that Chris was involved and according to Darren was openly bragging how he had set this whole thing up. Next in line was Ryan Buckner. As many of you know our home in a gated community in broad daylight was burglarized two weeks before this started, according to the texts from Darrens wife, Buckner was involved and was running surveillance on my family at that time and was involved in the invasion of our home. The texts also say Bakkus and Buckner were getting orders from the 11th floor to get to Darren before the upcoming election. The texts indicate that by setting US up, Darren would have political mud on him and not become the Chief of Public Safety. Kat repeatedly texted how Darren was going to take these guys down and they were going to pay for what they did and he and Ray would make things right. All the while Darren thought we were getting the correct information about the events surrounding this madness through our private investigator. To the best of my knowledge, Darren had no idea Kat was sending us the play by play of everything she knew and overheard. We were told by Darren to stay quiet and he would “RIGHT THE WRONG” and clear Brads name and ours. This went on from the beginning to exactly two days before the trial when Darren called Shawn and reiterated what he had said for months… that he knew he was target and to stay quiet because he would make it right at trial. Darren did not make it right. He made it worse. He said nothing.

After Darren played politics in Brads first trial and all but cut his throat and ours my husband met with the FBI and repeatedly told them to access my phone records and they would have the truth to this whole mess, but sadly they only wanted to have him give them information to prosecute Brad with and even told him “give us info on Brad and we will look into the phone records.” When my husband told them there was no info to give on Brad because he was innocent , that meeting was over and needless to say they never contacted me to obtain these records. So, here I am sharing the tangible truth they refuse to acknowledge that would exonerate Brad. Phone records can be produced “with proper warrants “ and would expose everything and clear Brad and hold the guilty accountable.

Thank you EYE readers for the support you have given to Brad, and to getting to the bottom of this mess. - Erika Bryan.

The Eye would like to thank Ms. Bryan for providing this letter. This letter may clear up some issues but Brad Ahrensfeld’s fate still lies in the hands of the courts. Based on this new information, an ombudsman needs to investigate this matter. This requires a Congressional investigation that should have absolutely no mercy on the offending person or parties. Also, one may see why all the local media has their tails between their legs.

I find it very hard to believe that Darren White had no knowledge that his wife was sending these text messages. The fact remains that he LIED on the stand. He has ruined several peoples lives and continues to stay quiet about it to save his political ass. He needs to go down for this. Thank you, Mrs. Bryan for sharing your story.

Darren and "Kat" ( Peaches) need to be subpoenaed, be made to testify under oath at a new trial and those text messages damn well need to be produced as evidenced in this case.
Someone needs to be held accountable here, and Brad needs to exonerated.
Maybe some indictments are in order for those involved in this sham,. like Darren, Chris, "Kat-Peaches" and others. My only hope is that 60 minutes or some national syndicated show picks this up.

Duh, APD also does the same thing. There are no "rules" when it comes to interrogation. Lying is normal business to obtain a confession or additional facts or witnesses. That's why the smart thing to do is keep your mouth shut and lawyer up.

I do appreciate the additional information though as it does shed some light (assuming its factual) on the situation.

As a citizen of ABQ I think its great that Brad is deeply involved in this. It sheds light on city and APD corruption. If it was a citizen being falsely prosecuted no one would care, least of all APD. What goes around comes around.

Do you have any insight as a former news person? It doesn't make sense they would report every thing about Brad and Shaun and pretend Darren has no involvement.

Post 508. Brad didn't get a fair trial. He would of been found not guilty if the evidence that was withheld.would of been introduce. It has nothing to do with some stupid cars, an innocent man was going to be sent to prison.

erika said...

Watching the lack of intelligent television news coverage of crime in this town is agonizing. In this case it's hard to break down the issue as to all the pathetic potential reasons why the media has been so busy chasing sleaze in Brads case that they've managed to completely miss/ignore the real crime story here. I'm confident there can be enough analysis of this case to write a discertation. I can't speculate as to the nature of conversations that have taken place between our local tv news directors and the city. However i promise you they have transpired and i think an educated guess based on experience and common sense would make me believe the following factors are most likely at play:
1. the threat of costly litigation which little local stations even those owned by conglomerates avoid at all costs.
2. the threat of somehow being excluded from obtaining details or just simple facts of the bread and butter of Albuquerque's local TV stations -- violent crime. Let's face it, the stations here are spoon fed what they get, and in turn regurgitate that to the public. How are they going to bite the hand that feeds them and survive?
Please forgive me for the vulgarity of this metaphor but I find the local TV coverage of this case so repulsive that I have at times wondered as to whether i'm watching the news being raped, or a prostitute at work.

The Eye has been reporting on the Ahrensfield debacle since 24 Dec. It is really helpful to re-read this Xmas eve post and comments (includes first motion) and the Eye's 30 Dec post. Brad has painted a pretty clear picture for us if you go back and read his comments (plus Shawn and now Erika too). The short answer to 9:37 seems to be that Brad was headhunted by APD Chief Shultz and Dep Chief Callaway plus Feds as pay back for Brad's testimony in the Comacho trial.

Please....Shawn Bryan is as dirty as they get, and let's get real he's beaten Erika Ruiz--well documented.

The whole thing stinks. If Brad wants to hang out with Bryan so be it. I never had any issue with Brad and my experiences with him are such that he would give anybody the shirt off his back to help them. That also may be his weakness but so what.

Shawn is a POS and now he's finding out how much fun Darren is. Birds of a feather flock together and I hope they all go down. This place makes me think of Egypt except we're all a sad bunch of sheep.

TO the FBI get the text messages,this Country depends on your honesty and law enforfement needs to know if they are working with you that you can be trusted. Everyone in law enforcement knows at time your investigations may go into the gray area. Those investigations must be handled within the strict letter of the law and never be permitted to cross into into the black area. Yes sometimes you must lie to a suspect durning an investigation to gain evidence.An example of this would be posing as a drug dealer to make drug buys to get to the supplier of thoes drugs. You Never lie on the witness stand to get a convection. You can not leave out evidence that you know exists to get a conviction! The saying amoung law enforcement is there will be another day.Meaning law enforcement knows the person is guilty but there is not enough evidence to arrest or convict, you walk away there will be another day. To Terra Neda A.U.S.A.. You proabbly dont remember me but in the past I prosecuted many drug cases with you. I respected you so much that I named my daughter after you. She is now 20yoa to give you a time frame. Terra get the text messages,let the inocent free and the guilty,no matter who face the court. I have been told there were mis-statements made in court under oath, and that evidence was with held including lab reports. If this is true walk away and get this mess cleaned up. The inocent must not go to jail even for one day and people can not and must not have their lives ruined over a poor investigation. I dont know who is guilty and who is not,but from everything I have seen Brad Ahrensfield is not and the Bryans were use as pawns in a political shell game. I have the highest respect for you, make sure you are doing the right thing, I would never want to lose that respect I have for you. To Darren White : My Invatation stands for you to attend an open A.P.O.A. metting and answer questions from the membership. I have not taken my no confidence motion off the table, but I would like to give you the opprotunity to give your side to change my mind.To T.J. if it is you posting on this blog, as everyone believes it is, PUT YOUR NAME ON IT. Do you believe in what you are saying or not ? To the local media, you should be ashamed of yourself !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! In closing I would say to everyone, put yourself in Ahrensfield or Bryans place. This could happen to you. And it has happened to many of us on a much smaller scale. This case has shaken my faith in the legal system from the police, to the federal government. I am in the winter of my career in law enforcement but I still believe in RIGHT AND WRONG. IT IS AS SIMPLE AS BLACK AND WHITE. God bless AMERICA.

Brad Ahrensfield here; Callaway was dead set and took it personal on prosecuting Comacho for first degree murder, and pushed that case through the DA's office. I was contacted by the DA's prior to the Grand Jury as an expert on Defensive Tactics and in particular Gun Retention. After several meetings and getting my opinion of the case I could tell the Asst DA's were uncomfortable with what the evidence on my end was showing. But Callaway wanted him prosecuted and the case pressed on. But, after a Grand Jury, I testified for the defense in the trial on short notice because they (the prosecution) accidently left me on the witness list and retained a FBI agent from the FBI Academy who couldnt even get qualified as an expert on the stand! I was the only witness for the defense and after i testified the Jury saw the truth and Comacho was acquitted. Long story short Callaway was furious and the next day my transfer from SWAT to the APD Academy was put on hold pending the review of my testimony (which by the way I have never seen done in Fifteen years if its ever been done). But Shultz rules the Department by fear and intimidation, common knowledge. He has a documented history of it! But as most officers who have been on any time know that my history with being ambushed by Callaway goes back more than a decade. Thats another story. Plus Callaway has always been known as a headhunter that's his reputation on the department, and its normally not a big deal unless its your head he's hunting!

Anonymous said...

This entire fiasco sends one very clear and strong message: politics within the COA & APD is the ultimate game and those who are successful in playing that game are the ones who reap the rewards of high paid cushy positions and exemption from following the rules the rest of us are subject to. Even to the point where laws are broken and trampled on. But actually it goes beyond breaking the law of man. It is indicative of how morally bankrupt these power players are. What is truly offensive and scarey is that these are the people the rest of us rely upon to keep us safe, when in fact they are no better than the thugs they warn us to stay away from.

post 12:16 Brad covers the Schultz, Callaway issue on the 2010 Dec 30th post "who is the God Father" in the comments section,,,,its interesting reading because its common knowledge that Callaway is known for targeting officers and doing bias investigations on them. Another thing that was common knowledge if you have been on this department for awhile is Callaway went after Brad about 10-11 years ago, but, looked like an ass when the case went to a hearing officer,,,I also heard somewhere that Brad had also filed a couple of lawsuits against those individuals as well not sure how true that is. But 100% fact that Callaway and Schultz use retaliation to keep officers under their thumbs. I have a feeling when this all comes out the city is going to lose another 1 million dollars because of piss poor leadership. When will the Mayor learn and take responsibility! He hired them!

Mayor Berry, this is like a one 500 pound bag of crap around your neck and it doesn't bode well for your administration either.
You should have gotten rid of Schultz and distanced yourself from Darren. He kept his powder dry till the very end and when the poll numbers changed he dropped Marty with his pants still down around his ankles to endorse you. You didn't need his endorsement, you all ready had it won.
Many people were in your corner and supported you from the very beginning and got dick. Paul Heh comes to mind.Darren and Campbell, the 'Johnny come latelys' climbed aboard and got two of the biggest positions in the city.
Now you have a huge credibility problem with your CPSO and everyone from Las Cruces, Farmington to Santa Fe is talking about it.

In one post someone mentions an airport job that ended, was that Nick Bakkus's job and what does that have to do with Darren? What is the political motive??

To the best of my knowledge, Darren had no idea Kat was sending us the play by play of everything she knew and overheard. We were told by Darren to stay quiet and he would “RIGHT THE WRONG” and clear Brads name and ours.

Something doesn't make sense?

Maybe we need to gather up all of these freaks and interrogate them in separate rooms.
Either that or off to GITMO with all of them.
We'll damn well know the truth then.

Because she wasn't married to him at the time and had no idea. Now, conveniently, they are married so she cannot be called upon to testify against him...

Yes, you are correct,since the wedding, marriage or whatever, she does not HAVE to or is REQUIRED to testify against her husband. However, should she CHOOSE to do so that's a different story.
I suspect, when push comes to shove and she is either subpeonaed or indicted, I would suspect all bets are off. She will not risk going it alone, which could present a quandary for Darren , Ray and others involved in this cluster f _ _ _.

On Feb 4 someone named anonymous ha said... "Buckner and Bacus set this whole mess in motion hoping for a banner case only to find out they had been lied to/jerked off by a CI. They had already broken numerous laws to try to set this up before they realized they had been duped by the CI." Can somebody give us outsiders some details of the investigation of the dealership and the bryan's house? What did it look like, who was involved, how did the CI come out on top? Details make it easier to tell others...or hopefully to write about this. Glad to hear it is now being talked about around NM!!

Darren has found a new love with the Fire Chief. He even gave him a "real helmet", to play with. The two of them fit under dingle Berry's desk.

Fascinating how so many morons believe the crap people like Erika Ruiz Bryan spew forth. Do you really think the FBI or APD would go to these extents to create a work of fiction? For what purpose? Nobody likes to go to jail, that's why we have them. Still, morons will try to get away with everything and when they are caught it's the same old "I was set up BS." Admit your wrongs. Ericka gets fired from 13 and now her hubby gets stuck on the stand against his buddy Brad. I wonder what that means?

I can also give you examples of the same type behavior from Darren White while he was the Sheriff, though they did not rise to this level. There was an officer involved shooting in 2006, and the witness Deputy to that shooting has made contact with the FBI in response to White and Bargiola sweeping the facts under the rug. That witness Deputy was soon contacted by Bargiola and ordered not to be talking to anyone outside the agency about the incident. How would Bargiola have known about the FBI contact if not told by the FBI? This shooting still has not gone to Grand Jury, though the Deputy who shot is no longer with the Department. White has somehow managed to keep this out of the courts and out of the media for going on 5 years.

Darren White was sued by a former female Deputy for discipline she received. She checked out evidence and turned it over to an attorney on a pending civil suit case, violating Department policy. She sued White for disciplining her, and because he was in the midst of running for National office, he quickly settled for 3 figures, though there was a clear violation of the policy. He just did not want any cloud over him so he could pursue political gain.

I was in several meetings with White while he was Sheriff, and can attest to his lack of honesty. In one meeting, he boldly stated that a particular action would not take place, then the next day signed his name to that action, which violated the current policy.

There was an association meeting in 2009 where a member Deputy made a motion to hold a vote of confidence/no confidence on White. I witnessed several attacks on that Deputy in the following weeks and months by various members of White's administration following that motion. And a few higher ranking members then began attending the meetings, though they had not been there in years. The motion was eventually tabled in response to some of these higher ranking members, and a vote was never held before White could leave office. I can tell you that the BCDSA did endorse White in his run for Congress, and it was stated by many on an open floor, "If we support him, and he gets elected, we are rid of him. If we dont support him and he is not elected, we are screwed for a few more years".

The Sheriffs Dept. had the same issues as the APD is having now, and as the DPS had with him 10 years ago. I would advise you all to take a close look at Bargiola as well. If White is involved, the Bargiola is as well. Bargiola helped to cover up the female Deputy's illegal behavior that was referred to in a previous post. He also was a major factor in the Narcotics scandal the Dept had in 2008, as well as some moral issues (sexual exploitations by on duty employees) where the complaining parties were called by Bargiola and coerced into not filing complaints.

Anyway, the pattern is there, has been for years. This group just wants personal gain and will throw anyone under the bus to get it. And just like any other criminal, the longer they get away with it, and the more they do, the more confident they become. Unfortunately, Brad is caught in the middle. In some ways it is good that it is Brad, because most others would not bring the truth to light. Brad, I'm hopeful you'll come out righteous and the guilty will be held accountable. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
