Amtrak to share information but not computer with DEA[Albuquerque, NM]

But Amtrak Police Chief Ernest R. Frazier, in a letter to The Albuquerque Journal, said that his officers would continue to share information they get from the system with the DEA and other appropriate law enforcement agencies. Investigators look for information on passengers that includes where their journey starts and ends and whether a ticket was purchased for cash. A DEA agent said in court testimony that other suspicious signs are passengers with one-way tickets bought within three days of the trip. DEA access ot Amtrak’s ticketing system became public when the agent testified at a pre-trial hearing for a drug defendant arrested on board a train.
