AK-47 wielding cartel gunmen rob truckers near border


Startling new dash cam footage highlights a serious danger for truckers near the U.S./Mexico border.

Dash cam video has surfaced that shows heavily armed gunmen allegedly working for the Gulf Cartel stopping truckers along a Mexican highway — and than robbing them of their wallets, phones, and other personal items before allowing them to continue along the road.

According to local news sources, the video was captured on the South Loop in the city of Reynosa, Mexico, only about 10 miles from the U.S. border.

In the dash cam clip, you can see cartel members armed with AK-47s or similar weapons approach both the dash cammer and another trucker, demanding that the drivers hand over their valuables. Nothing was taken from the trailers in the video clip.
