Police Will Steal Your Car in Lordsburg!

While visiting Lordsburg on a trip, I stopped to buy gas. I was illegally detained for over an hour by very aggressive policemen who wanted badly to search my car (with no probable cause whatsoever.) They brought a phony drug-dog, seized my car without due process (no paperwork or chain of custody;) and wrote their own search warrants with forged signatures. I have heard this same story from a few other travellers, so this seems to be a common occurrence in Lordsburg, NM. I have since made plans to travel around this horribly unfriendly town. This is on topic and should be posted. I am relating relevant facts about my time in Lordsburg. All travellers should, in my opinion, be very wary of stopping in this town.
