Port Angeles Border Patrol supervisor not bored

PORT ANGELES, Wash. (AP) -- The Port Angeles Border Patrol supervising agent says there's plenty of important work for agents: watching for terrorists, drug smugglers and illegal aliens on the Olympic Peninsula.

Agent Jose Romero told a Chamber of Commerce luncheon Monday there's no reason for anyone to be bored.

The Peninsula Daily News reports (http://bit.ly/oXaBtu ) Romero did not mention agent Christian Sanchez by name.

Sanchez told an open government group in Washington, D.C., last month that the Port Angeles station was a "black hole" where many of the 40 agents had so little to do they sometimes passed time by driving around the peninsula -- something they called the "Baja 500."

The Border Patrol says Sanchez is still employed and the agency is investigating his allegations.
