In a story reported by KSAT12 in San Antonio, we learn that 24-year-old UPS worker Ceaser Renee Casillas was caught stealing prescriptions on camera. The total haul for Renee was142 oxycodone tablets, 70 alprazolam tablets, 140 lorazepam tablets, 56 diazepam tablets, and 56 Tylenol with codeine tablets.

After a little investigative reporting, the estimated street value of these prescriptions drugs would be valued at over $3600.00.  The arrest warrant states that Casillas worked for UPS at the distribution center on the Northeast Side. According to the article, On Oct. 22, a security supervisor at UPS contacted the Drug Enforcement Administration’s San Antonio office and reported that Casillas was seen on video opening packages and stealing the prescriptions, the affidavit states.

Upon investigation the DEA uncovered that from August through October, Casillas allegedly stole at least seven packages that were sent from Davila CD Pharmacy to patients, investigators said. He was arrested and his bond currently sits at $18,000.00.

Aside from prescription drugs, the border between Texas and Mexico is very important for drug cartels trying to smuggle their wares into the country. Cartels are trying to sneak in any drug that you can think of. From crystal meth and heroin to marijuana and counterfeit pills, there is no shortage of illicit substances coming up from south of the border and into the United States via Mexico and Texas. The further north the drugs make it in the United States the more money the cartel makes.  Check out some of the unusual attempts that have been made.
