Big Brother: 138 Narco-Cams discovered in Tamaulipas

Lucio R. Borderland Beat

Narcos have gone 'Big Brother'

Today, Tamaulipas State Police Force detected, deactivated and removed another 14 surveillance cameras placed in three colonias  in the northern border city of Reynosa .

From May 18 to July 28 this year, authorities have detected and disabled a full 183 video cameras and 58 transmitter antennas, in several municipalities, mainly in Reynosa, on streets: Río Bravo, Tres Picos, Oriente Tres  Independencia, de la Colonia Las Fuentes, Sección Lomas

Also found in Matamoros,  Miguel Aleman, Río Bravo and on the San Fernando-Reynosa highway.

The dismantling of these was the result of team ground surveys that the Tamaulipas state police force conducted.

In this past week alone, Mexican authorities discovered a network of 39 narco-cams that were videotaping dozens of
vantage points,  in Reynosa.

The cameras, set up on electrical posts around Reynosa, were used by the Gulf Cartel to keep an eye on the city, especially the activities of police and military.


Some of the narco-cams were controlled remotely via Wi-Fi and equipped with a modem, video data encoder and memory card.

  5. Amazing that the cartels have better surveillance equipment than the federal, state and municipal police forces combined. Not to mention that the Zetas have been installing a system of repeaters throughout Mexico that allows them to communicate via two-way radios. If my memory serves serves me right, the radios are digital and the transmissions encrypted, which prevents authorities from eavesdropping on their conversations. Yet, the cartels have the capability of broadcasting and listening in on police bands thereby giving them the ability to interfere with police operations at will. They have even broadcast radio messages directly to specific officers threatening them or their families with harm should the officer interfere with the business of the cartels. Hearing threats over police radios and having the threats directed to particular officers is sure to dissuade officers even more from becoming involved with the cartel's operations. This illustrates just how far behind the Mexican government, at every level, is when it comes to equipping police officers with the tools they need to perform their duties.At least the few honest ones, if there are any left.

  7. Here in Chihuahua a power pole fell that had a lot of wires that were touching the ground. The pole was at an angle across the street and at the highest point you could not drive under it. This is in a poor neighborhood with hundreds of small children playing outside and many people walking as many cannot afford cars. It is an extremely busy street that people drive and walk down from their adobe and block "chicken coupe" like constructed houses, with tires and block, and rocks used to hold down their tin roofs. This set like this for 3 days before anyone came to do anything about it. If it had happened in an upscale neighborhood like mine here it would have been handled within hours. Which I still would have been considered slow. The poor people here are not cared for and apparently not that important. Many cholo's and criminal gangs come from these areas, but also some of the kindest people that deserve better live there. To take these cameras down was not a priority to the police or government, just like fixing this power pole. If it effects the people with money, where power people live you will have the best in street lights, road maintenance and more.

  8. I had an idea that we could do this on the US border to catch illegal crossing, and alert Border Patrol and publicly document when they fail to act.

  9. Yo so worried about "illegal" crossing...
    --Cameras would catch some illegal shenanigans of US government agents too, airplane loads of drugs coming in, and money shipped away from the US...
    But the legal business deals are what is scary, that is where mexico gets really raped, legally, without even a promise of marriage at a latter date, call it free trade or partnerships, we are lucky if we get all the work for the least pay, in exchange for selling away our country for free...
