SINTON – On Tuesday, Dec. 20, the Live Oak and McMullen county sheriffs met with members of the South Texas Coastal Sheriff’s Alliance in Sinton, including sheriffs from Victoria, Bee, Lavaca, Gonzales, Nueces, Kleberg, San Patricio, Karnes, DeWitt, Jim Wells and Brooks counties.

Bee County Sheriff Carlos Carrizales Jr., who is the vice president of the organization, worked in conjunction with the other sheriffs to address continuing border security issues and the process of how to secure further grant funding for combating those issues.

To date, Carrizales and his office have secured more than $500,000 for Operation Border Star.

Operation Border Star was implemented by the South Texas Coastal Sheriff’s Alliance to combat human trafficking and the flow of illegal narcotics northbound, as well as the transportation of illegal money and weapons southbound. There are currently 22 counties in the alliance.
