A small microphone or "bug". The movie offers a small glimmer of hope that the investigation might continue, even after all the previous tragedy. However, given the scene in which the Ayala's lawyer says he sweeps his office for bugs twice a day, there is little chance that the microphone will be there long enough to gather any useful information.

Helena's deal, which she did to secure her husband's release free of the charges against him, involved 3 parts:

The first part being the 3 million dollar debt her husband owes would be forgiven.

The second part of the deal is that Helena's husband would become the sole distributor for the cocaine that the bregons would ship over the border in the dolls. Such a move would serve to rebuild Carlos' failed business that was destroyed when Ruiz was busted. Carlos and his wife would become very rich again, as would the bregons.

The third part was that the bregons would agree to assassinate Eduardo Ruiz, the prime witness in the prosecution's case against Carlos.

In return for this she gives bregon the formula and procedures for turning cocaine into bunny dolls that resemble high impact plastic. The cocaine would also carry no odor so that it would be undetectable by dogs used by the DEA border agents to find illegal shipments of drugs. When the dolls are placed in a solvent, the cocaine immediately dissolves and can be dried out and sold as powder. Because so many products like the bunnies are made and imported from Mexico (and other countries), shipping drugs across the border would be very easy for the bregon cartel.
