On May 21, Texas authorities organized a massive raid that hit several places in the state, including San Antonio, McAllen, Corpus Christi and Austin. According to reports, the authorities were targeting at least 30 alleged members involved in a drug-trafficking ring. It was also believed that some of these individuals were involved with the Tango Orejon gang.
According to an assistant special agent with the Drug Enforcement Agency in San Antonio, the Tango Orejon gang is a drug trafficking organization with many members who have criminal and violent backgrounds. Two of the targeted suspects, a 37-year-old man and a 39-year-old man, were thought to be ringleaders in San Antonio. Their group was suspected to be trafficking methamphetamine, heroin and fentanyl.
