State Department Re-Issues Travel Warning for Mexico


Breitbart Texas: The silence from Tamaulipas officials began shortly after August 8, the last day that they issued out news releases about shootouts or apprehensions throughout the state. However, they continue to issue out news releases about government programs, tourism, and health care programs. Since then, the state has seen various shootouts just south of the Texas border and one execution, which Mexican authorities have worked on but not acknowledged On Friday morning, authorities in Matamoros recovered the decapitated body of a man who has not been identified in the city’s south side, a Tamaulipas law enforcement official told Breitbart Texas on condition of anonymity. State officials have yet to release any information on the case. On Thursday, the Mexican industrial city of Reynosa saw a series of short shootouts and pursuits between the Mexican military and members of drug cartels. The shootouts led to a series of blockades as cartel members tried to slow down authorities. While Tamaulipas authorities have yet to acknowledge the shootout or give a report on casualties, citizen journalists in that city reported on the shootout in details providing up to the minute locations and pictures through social media. On Tuesday morning, the city of Matamoros also saw its share of violence which despite the silence by the Tamaulipas government, a law enforcement official confirmed to Breitbart Texas that two gunmen had died following a rolling shootout that included military snipers having to shoot out of a helicopter to fight the gunmen. The official told Breitbart Texas that the shootout was an effort to capture a high value target but the individual managed to escape. The incidents started with a bomb threat being called in to the Gateway International Bridge in Matamoros causing a momentary interruption of traffic between Mexico and the U.S. as authorities swept the area. While Tamaulipas authorities never acknowledged the incident, the U.S Consulate General’s Office in Matamoros issued out a warning to U.S. citizens warning them to avoid the area. In a similar fashion, just moments later, consular officials issued a second warning about a shootout near in the city’s south central area commonly known as the San Francisco neighborhood. Despite the downplaying of violence by Mexican officials, the U.S. Department of State re-issued a travel advisory on Friday that had already been in place warning Americans about the risks they face in Mexico particularly in the border regions. The travel advisory warns U.S. citizens about getting caught in the crossfire of shootouts, being victims of kidnappings, robbery, and extortions. In a previous version of the advisory authorities mentioned briefly the attempted kidnapping of a consular employee in Matamoros.

Thieves Steal $2 Million Dollar Pharmaceutical Shipment


WSBTV.com- Thieves stole a tractor-trailer rig loaded with $2 million in pharmaceutical drugs and narcotics as it was parked and running outside a Bartow County truck stop early Tuesday morning. Investigators described it as a carefully planned heist. "A lot of times you hear of trucks taken off the grid, in situations like this, where narcotics get into the hands of individuals who can put them out on the streets." Bartow County sheriff’s investigator Jonathan White said. White told Channel 2's Tom Regan that the truck driver left his rig unlocked, with the keys inside, at a Pilot Travel Center on Cassville-White Road around 5.30 a.m. Tuesday. The driver went in to use the restroom and returned to find his rig gone, White said. Within a few minutes of the theft being reported, a tracking device on the trailer alerted the trucking company and police to its location. Investigators say the thieves tried to throw police off their trail by switching out the truck cab that was pulling the trailer. "Basically on this they had a truck on standby, to swap out that tractor and trailer with another one, so it would be concealed. And they used Velcro to over the license tag to conceal the plate and replace it with another one." said Investigator White. Georgia State Patrol and Bartow County sheriff's deputies tracked the stolen rig to an exit off Interstate 75. In a slow-speed chase, they followed the rig into an industrial park where the thieves stopped the truck, jumped out of the passenger door, and ran into nearby woods. Investigators recovered the drugs but said they are still looking those behind the heist, which they suspect was an inside job. "These are targeted, where they can strike in this transport chain, and get the trucks easily," Bartow County Sheriff's Sgt. Jonathan Rogers said. Rogers said it likely someone provided the thieves with information on what the truck was carrying. Other truckers said they take extra precautions when passing through the metro Atlanta area. "Whenever I get near Atlanta, I always get an alert to watch my truck, my trailer, because Atlanta is known for getting thefts." truck driver Adam Orcutt said. Another driver said he rarely loses sight of his truck. "We're very cautious; very much watch our load anywhere we got. [We] don't leave them alone anywhere," truck driver Rick Rusher said. Investigators said they are looking into the possibility that the thieves behind Wednesday’s scheme are part of a larger criminal network involved in truck theft.
