ALICE - Operation Unified Alliance in Alice nets 51 arrests and the seizure of 48 pounds of marijuana over the weekend. The Alice Police Department, Jim Wells County Sheriff's Department, Department of Public Safety, and Border Patrol worked together in the effort.
This is the fourth time authorities have conducted this type of operation since October. The effort all started with a rash of gang violence in the city, including drive-by shootings, vehicle crashes, and several threats of violence.
