UPDATE

Smugglers using fake TxDOT trucks
10:00 PM CDT on Tuesday, September 18, 2007
By SHELTON GREEN
KVUE News
Authorities with the Texas Department of Transportation also known as TxDOT are alerting their employees and the public about an illegal operation involving drugs and fake TxDOT trucks.
Investigators in south and east Texas have busted two different individuals who they say were using fake TxDOT trucks to smuggle marijuana across the state.
One man was arrested and charged in east Texas near Yokum with drug possession. Other charges are pending.
Authorities were first tipped to the illegal operation last month by an actual TxDOT employee in south Texas near Victoria.
The employee was driving down the highway when he noticed what looked like a TxDOT truck. The employee caught up to the driver and tried to wave at him. But after the driver didn't wave back the TxDOT employee started noticing that something about the truck wasn't right.

DPS

"The individual had a TxDOT logo on the door which was absolutely correct but it was the reflective stripes on the side of the vehicle as well as the back of the vehicle and the numbering system so we're happy he got it wrong because it led to his arrest" said Mark Ball, a TxDOT spokesperson out of Dallas.
TXDOT isn't sure how long the illegal operation has been going on nor do they know how far it extends.
The state agency is warning its employees that they may be pulled over by police just to make sure they're legitimate.

Marijuana is illegal. The trafficking of marijuana is part of organized crime. Someone somewhere is making tons of money off this kind of stuff. This guy goes to jail instead of them.

If he wanted to "support his family" he should have kept his in his pants until he was in a position to support them properly.

Two wrongs don't make a right.

well im not hating, just because you state he is making a ton of money doing that. i say ur just jealous. i mean hey do what it takes. and the drug business isnt going anywhere. its been here and will always be here. and as for your comment of keeping his in his pants till he was ready to support them, well let me ask u this . how many unexpected pregnancies happen? well also what if he was illegal? cant get a propper job to support to his needs? just because he did something in that nature why must you hate. organized crime, whatever if its not your cup of tea then oh well. its not mine but im just saying that was cool. and they should let him go for creativity.although the thought must have come from his bosses. but other than that im ok with it. and i say keep the ideas coming.
and also to your organized crime thing. how do you know he was involved in a organized crime ring? just because the amount he had? man you know nothing bout organized crime.

Your proper use of grammar, punctuation and capitlization show that you are a far superior debater than I. I bow to your vast knowledge of the illicit cannibus trade and it's effect on the family life of illegal immigrant single parents.




I'm not sympathetic to people who break the law in such a manner as this. I don't care if he's trafficking weed to make money to pay for the operation to remove his son's brain tumor.

I really don't think the dude hauling the weed cares what you think one way or another and if youre sympathetic or not. Furthermore, its funny that you believe that birthcontrol is solely a male responsibility. Last time I checked, it takes a to make a baby too.
He made a decision to perform a duty that was illegal but was probably very profitable for him and he got unlucky.
Meh, it happens. I'd much rather see the state of TX using their law enforcement to apprehend people breaking into homes, or other illegal crimes (organized crime or not) that actually have victims.
