By Adam Seibel,


GONZALES COUNTY, Victoria – Task Force Agents along with other agencies combined efforts to combat criminal activity in the Wilson and Gonzales County area.

This enforcement action is all part of Operation Lone Star.  This effort focused on the two counties bringing many law enforcement officers to their areas. Nearly 30 officers converged to conduct criminal interdiction operations.

The four-day operation yielded over 600 traffic stops, 17 Felony arrests, 20 misdemeanor arrests, 8 warrant arrests, 21 undocumented individuals turned over to border patrol, 25 drug seizures, 4 weapons seized, one which was stolen out of New Braunfels, 1 currency seizure, and 4 vehicles were seized that were part of criminal activity. One of the warrants served was for Indecency with a Child Sexual Contact. There were several arrests for methamphetamines, weapons charges, human smuggling, marijuana, THC wax, pills, and THC vapes. One traffic stop even yielded counterfeit money before it made it out to the streets.
