How to Become a Bounty Hunter



No Arrests Made After Suspects Exchange Gunfire with Border Patrol Agents

Four days after Border Patrol agents exchanged gunfire with two people inside a van near the Rio Grande in San Benito, no one has been arrested.

Agents attempted to stop the van, which authorities said contained bundles of narcotics, KRGV reports. 

The van managed to flee in the direction of Mexico.

No one was injured.

“We had an agent and a trooper receive gunfire back in December,” Border Patrol spokeswoman Marlene Castro said. “Although the agent was not hurt because he was wearing his bullet proof vest, the trooper was struck in the hip area.  Both are doing fine now. DPS is in charge of that investigation.

“These types of incidents, narcotics smuggling and assaults on agents, do happen beyond the fence.  The main reason being that smugglers are willing to do anything to protect their drug load.  They often attempt to drive their narcotic-laden vehicles into the river to avoid having them seized by law enforcement and ruthlessly resort to assaulting agents to avoid arrest.”
