    Mexican Military Stops Police Patrols in Matamoros

    Sheriff advises travelers to use caution



    MATAMOROS, Mexico - The Cameron County Sheriff is warning people crossing into Matamoros to go at their own risk.

    The Mexican military has detained Matamoros police. Sheriff Omar Lucio says soldiers are searching for any officer tied to drugs or the Gulf Cartel.

    While the military's investigating, they're taken over municipal, regional, and state offices. That means no police are on patrol.

    Lucio's been monitoring the situation through his liaison officer. He tells us there's been an increase in violence. "I understand that there have been assaults, robberies, burglarize. But when they call, nobody responds. And this is a concern to the public in Matamoros," explains Lucio.[/b]

    If you got any support from your chain of command (or what ever it's called there) I might be persuaded to be join the Boarder Patrol. I can only imagine your frustration.

The Hidalgo swat team is providing an extra layer of security making sure there's no spill over of the violence in Reynosa. NEWSCHANNEL 5 spoke with Hidalgo police chief Vernon Rosser, he tells us they decided to beef up security at the bridge because they are getting mixed reports out of Reynosa. He says they want to seal our border to prevent any violence from spilling over into the Valley.[/b]

    Federal agents killed



    REYNOSA, Mexico - Two Mexican federal agents were killed in gun battles in Reynosa. Three more were injured.

    Federal agents were involved in three separate attacks near the state hospital. The violence is reportedly in retaliation to Monday's deadly shootings between Mexican military and suspected drug cartel members.

    That attack left three accused cartel members dead. Ten Mexican military members and federal police officers were also hurt.

    Investigators arrested ten people in connection to the shooting. They included three U.S. residents. The Department of Homeland Security Director in Austin is warning travelers heading to Mexican border cities to be careful.[/b]
