  • Gtg69...I agree with you completely. BUT I hope you noticed that the PD did a much better job than the SO is (in)famous for. The PD didn't come to Victoria and grab an innocent person in their sweeps. Perhaps they could give lessons to the SO.

  • boy, i feel so much safer knowing that a handful of people aren't going to be sitting at home, getting high and eating Doritos.

    i certainly understand that the police have to do their jobs, and that to them, a law is a law and a violator is a violator. however, it seems like such an irresponsible waste of time and resources to be focusing so much on a crime that really doesn't improve the safety and security of the citizens at large. i don't know anything about cocaine, but you're talking about less than an ounce of marijuana per person, which is an amount solely for personal use and not at all an amount that would go toward distribution.

    what's really sad about marijuana laws right now is what it does to those convicted. the young people arrested, maybe they were headed off to college or otherwise had skills that they could have taken into jobs to really benefit the community. but now, with this criminal record, they will be very hard-pressed to find anyone willing to hire them, a problem they will have to deal with for the rest of their lives.

    fortunately, more and more younger police offers recognize this (from conversations with officers and secondhand experiences) and employ more of a "let's destroy your pot and pretend i never saw it" technique of enforcement. unfortunately, too many higher-up police offers still treat marijuana as a dangerous and disturbing drug, and are too quick to bring up criminal charges to someone with an amount for personal use.

    what's also mystifying is that it took these officers 14 months to find not even a pound of marijuana? 14 months? i could seriously get you the same amount within a couple of hours, and i'm not even a user. the average high school kid could do the same in even less time.

  • That is truly amazing! The people of Cuero should be in complete and utter awe at the accomplishments of the Cuero Police Department and DeWitt County!
    It took them all of 14 months, hundreds of manhours and thousands of taxpayer dollars to arrest 22 people who couldn't sell a pair of shoes if their life depended on it! Out of 22 "Drug Dealers" they pulled in a whopping $1,000 cash, two microscopic bags of cocaine, a Cuero "high societys" teenage son's saturday night bag of marijuana & bong, and fully legal registered handgun that, in fact, will be returned!!! So chalk it up until the taste shoots out of your mouth Cueroites!!! These are YOUR taxpayer dollars HARD AT WORK!!!!!!!!

  • Good job CPD.. Thanks also to the chief for the zero tolerance policy.

    I hope this is ongoing. We need to start cleaning up the small towns and make people examples of what will happen when they bring trash in.

    Hoping "operations spring cleaning" goes into summer and winter too..

  • Redbull,
    How about you state some FACTS or stop casting aspersions.

    Archie,
    Typical! Spin a positive into a negative when it comes to Law Enforcement.

    Good job Cuero PD.
