Victoria County Sheriff T. Michael O’Connor released the following statement regarding the seizure and arrests of 10 criminals, 4lbs of cocaine valued at $60,000, approximately $50,000 of hard currency, 10 vehicles, and 400 tires:
Today, we had the support of Homeland Security, Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office, Bay City Police Department, VCSO, the Attorney General’s Office and for that I want to thank each of them for their service in our region.
Since I have been elected Sheriff of Victoria County, we have established collaboratives and capabilities amongst a wide source of law enforcement agencies that empower us to be relentless against criminal organizations that threaten the way of life in Victoria, the laws of Texas, and the United of States of America.
We will continue to expand upon our ever evolving transnational threat facing Texas on a daily basis to combat the criminal element that contributes to human trafficking, drug smuggling, and associated criminal activities.
If you choose to participate in criminal activity in Victoria County, we will find you, and we will take you down.
We want Victoria County to be assured that every morning you get up and go to work we are already out keeping you safe. That safety is solely insured because of the men and women of the Victoria County Sheriff’s Office. I want to commend them for their work today and every day.
Be safe out there!
-Sheriff T. Michael O’Connor
