LAREDO, July 2 - U.S. residents are being advised not to visit Nuevo Laredo this Fourth of July Weekend.
The advisory comes from the Texas Department of Public Safety and the Webb County Sheriff’s Office.
Both agencies say they have received credible intelligence from multiple sources indicating that the Zetas Cartel is planning to target U.S. citizens who travel to Nuevo Laredo this weekend.
“According to the information we have received, the Zetas are planning a possible surge in criminal activity, such as robberies, extortions, car-jackings and vehicle theft, specifically against U.S. citizens,” said DPS Director Steven C. McCraw. “We urge U.S. citizens to avoid travel to Nuevo Laredo this weekend if it can be avoided.”
In a news release, DPS says there is no indication that these cartel-related criminal activities will occur in Texas. But, the release states, DPS and Webb County Sheriff’s Office “cannot discount the information received that supports possible crimes against U.S. citizens in Nuevo Laredo and perhaps the surrounding Mexican suburbs.
DPS and local authorities are fully prepared to respond to any criminal activity that occurs within Texas, the news release states.
