His acquaintance with Mingo flourished when he ushered him and his tomatoes, the product of choice in trade between the poor villagers of San Pascual and the richer anglos, across the border. However he soon discovered the trade in tomatoes was merely a cover for a more lucrative trade in marijuana. It was Randolph's determination to protect Mingo that led him to the final trip to San Pascual where he witnessed first hand that Jessica was not only able to take care of herself but also came close to losing all their lives to the real drug traffickers.
