Mexican Authorities Destroy 25 Tons of Narcotics

MEXICO CITY – More than 25 tons of narcotics and 41 tons of clothing were incinerated at a facility in Tamaulipas, a state in northeastern Mexico, the Attorney General’s Office said Tuesday.

The drugs and clothing were seized in more than 60 investigations in cities in Tamaulipas, which is on the border with the United States, the AG’s office said in a statement.

In Reynosa, located across the border from McAllen, Texas, authorities destroyed 41 tons of clothing, 21,280 kilos of marijuana and 24 kilos of methamphetamines linked to 56 cases in the border cities of Reynosa, Matamoros and Miguel Aleman.

The drugs and clothing were destroyed in compliance with the Narcotics Destruction Program and the Federal Criminal Procedure Code, which requires “the incineration of seized drugs and items used to commit crimes,” the AG’s office said.

Authorities also destroyed 4,187 kilos of marijuana and cocaine related to 19 investigations in the Emilio Portes Gil district of Nuevo Laredo, a city across the Rio Grande from Laredo, Texas.

AG’s office internal control department personnel, Tamaulipas state officials and federal officials verified the drugs’ destruction.
