Nick Ramos, a retired Sergeant and K9 handler from the New Mexico State Police, brings a wealth of experience gained as a Narcotics Agent where he acquired extensive knowledge of the drug underworld before returning to the streets. Nick conducted investigations and interviews from over 300 personal seizures of drugs, money, and weapons of cartel controlled property.
