Drug Crime in Texas: How the Navy is Involved

Most drug crimes in Texas are tied to drug rings which originated in the border country of Mexico. Across the border many drug lords and their gangs are trying to smuggle narcotics into the United States, where they believe that they can find willing buyers who will spend millions to receive the outlawed substances. In order to curb the drug crimes in Texas, many believe that the law enforcement needs to take it to the root of the problem in Mexico. Recently, the Kansas City Star reported that the Navy has become the most prominent crime-fighting force in Mexico as these trained soldiers move deep into the darkness of the city and try to take out the narcotics gangs that are infiltrating America.

Recently, a naval unity gunned down the leader of the Los Zetas crime group and was hailed for successfully completing this dangerous feat. The gunfire was exchanged only 70 miles from the Texas border in a town called Progresso. The Kansas City Star reports that Mexico’s navy is active deep in the country’s interior. They are trying to locate the dangerous drug rings that put people’s safety at risk and to shoot them down before they are able to inflict further damage. According to reports, the Mexican Navy is doing its best work far from the oceans where it is supposed to operate.

The navy has no fixed inland bases which means that the officers are not exposed to much as commanders of army bases. There is no fear that the bases will be attacked in a drug war, so the navy is free to fight without that threat. While the Mexican navy works hard to kill the drug crime on that side, law enforcement is roving south Texas to arrest any offenders who are found dealing and trafficking narcotics in the area. If you have been arrested in connection with a drug crime in the state of Texas, you will need a criminal defense lawyer who focuses on the area of narcotic crime to come to your aid.
