Narcos buy or trade drugs for stolen oil field equipment  used to cap PEMEX pipelines, subsequently, trucking the PEMEX stolen oil back into the U.S. and selling it to American oil brokers....Chivis

KRGV - Investigators say Mexican cartels are stealing millions of dollars in equipment from oil companies along the U.S.-Mexico border.
Officials said the equipment is behind used to steal fuel from Mexico's state-owned oil company Pemex.
"The cartels (are) buying, or trading narcotics for stolen oil field equipment so they could put taps on Pemex's pipelines," said Midland County Chief Sheriff Deputy Ed Krevit.
Many of the thefts are happening at oil fields in the Permian Basin.
"There's more oil field theft in this area than any place I've ever worked," said Dustin Brown, with Savanna Drilling.
Krevit estimates that Pemex may be losing up to $350 million a year from illegal taps on their pipelines.
He said cartels often truck the oil back to the U.S. where they sell it to oil brokers.
"Some of the cartels have been shouldered out of their traditional smuggling paths, so they've had to turn to other ways of generating revenue," Krevit said.
The cartels use the money to buy weapons and ammunition, he said.
"If they are doing it in West Texas, they're doing it in South Texas," said Phil Jordan, former DEA supervisor.
Jordan said there is intelligence that cartels are stealing equipment in South Texas.
More than a dozen companies drilled more than 3,000 wells in South Texas last year.

"If I'm losing equipment, losing parts, losing pieces, it's passed on to the operator and the operator has to pass it on to the consumer," Brown said.
Task force investigators said they are trying to stop the cartels in their tracks. They will start training law enforcement to spot oil field thefts.

Oil companies have been stealing billions from America for years. Like Robin Hood Mexicans are taking it back. Cuz they can. Cuz Texas law enforcement sure do love drugs, like all Americans. This is actually funny.

I guarantee you with the exception of maybe a few actual narcos who post here, those who cheer lead for their favorite 'team' only do so because they are so far away from the war, so they have the leeway to fantasize about how badass they think they are. Even with a loaded weapon in their hand, I would bet most would be meek as mice if they got within smelling distance of an actual combatant's cologne.

How about Dale Fisher of Big Lake, Texas that has been stealing oil from other companies ever since he was released from prison back in the early 80's. Everyone knows that he has been stealing oil all over West Texas and he continues to get away with it. His neighbor is a vetran of the Sheriff's department and he takes up for him. Good Luck Dale Fisher, I hope you go to prison some day. You are more deserving than anyone to get to live the rest of your life in prison from stealing oil. I hope someone takes you down for what you have done to others. You are a crook and people have seen you take oil from other companies' tank batteries and move the oil to you and your partner's. I hope you get what you deserve and the sooner the better. WATCH OUT FOR THE BIGGEST THEIF IN WEST TEXAS AND DON'T FORGET HIS NAME, DALE FISHER AND HE IS FROM BIG LAKE, TEXAS. IF YOU HAVE HAD OIL MISSING FROM ONE OF YOUR BATTERIES IN THE WEST TEXAS AREA, THIS GUY COULD BE THE ONE THAT HAULED IT OFF TO HIS OWN. HE IS A PROFESSIONAL AT IT AND HE HAS PEOPLE TO DO HIS DIRTY WORK AT NIGHT.
