Todd Staples Texas Department of Agriculture November 6, 2012, 3:00pm 1618 views|1 comment
AUSTIN--In an ongoing effort to seek increased federal resources to enhance border security, Agriculture Commissioner Todd Staples today announced the twelfth video posting in a 16-part series titled “Texas Traffic -- True Stories of Drug and Human Smuggling.” The series is available at www.ProtectYourTexasBorder.com.
This week’s video features Craig Teplicek, a South Texas rancher who sees drug and human smugglers, or “coyotes,” crossing his property on a regular basis. In a move that is highly discouraged by law enforcement, Teplicek once took matters into his own hands.
“The coyote was trying to get into the brush, so I ran and tackled him, and held him down until agents got there,” Teplicek said. “I know we are putting ourselves in danger, but I am to a point, I am fed up and we’ve got to do something.”
Each week for 16 weeks, the Texas Department of Agriculture is releasing videotaped interviews with law enforcement agents, farmers, ranchers and other citizens. These “Texas Traffic” stories offer firsthand accounts of drug running, human trafficking, international trespassing and other criminal activities linked to dangerous Mexican drug cartels.
“The Mexican drug cartels are violent, they are relentless in accessing the American drug market and they have chosen Texas as their primary access point,” Commissioner Staples said. “Unfortunately, President Obama and his staff continue to make jokes about the situation and suggest our border is safer than ever. The ‘Texas Traffic’ testimonials prove cartel activity is here on the U.S. side of the border.”
