NIXON -- Sheriff’s deputies from Wilson and Gonzales counties are searching the area of C.R. 116 northwest of here after officials say a group of suspected illegal aliens fled following a vehicular pursuit Nov. 8.

Wilson County Sheriff Joe D. Tackitt Jr. said that Wilson County Deputy Emanuel Fultz reported observing a Chevrolet cargo van roll through a stop sign on F.M. 1681 in the Union Valley area before 9:30 a.m. Fultz, who was driving in front of the vehicle, pulled over to let the van pass before attempting to initiate a traffic stop.

The driver fled onto C.R. 477, then continued into Gonzales County where the road changes to C.R. 116, Tackitt said. The driver then crashed through a fence before an estimated 15 occupants bailed out of the vehicle. As of 12:45 p.m., no one had been captured.

Tackitt urges anyone in the area who observes suspicious activity or suspicious people to call 911.

Sounds like a good idea since Mexico is one of our top three trading partners and Monterrey is a major business hub. San Antonio would certainly benefit but I'm not sure about Pandora. Mexico would pay for almost half. Laredo ... More ›

Notsonewsworthy.. Sounds like a waste of tax payer money. Are there really that many people traveling from the U.S. to Monterrey as there are from Monterrey to the U.S.?

Hey, did you all hear that our Congressman wants to have a high speed train from here all the way down to Monterrey, Mexico? That should really help cut down on the illegal trafficking problem, right? Not!

It would seem like comman sense for yearly physical tests to keep a LEO license including max wt to height ratio. It is also obvious that there is not. Why???

I am wondering exactly why we still try to apprehend these illegals. When they are caught ICE does nothing to them. After all they are potential demo voters. After amnesty.

Your the idiot. I know you have to be certified. People often get certified but are not qualified. If an officer chases a suspect on foot for fifty yards and is gasping for air that would make him certified but not fully qualified ... More ›
