The City of Aransas, just as all other cities in the Coastal Bend, experiences crimes related to drugs. Aransas Pass’ most abused drugs are Marijuana, Cocaine, Methamphetamine, and Heroin. Most commonly observed by our law enforcement officers is cocaine and heroin.
Though many criticize law enforcement’s efforts to combat drugs, which is commonly referred to as the war on drugs, people do not realize the multitude of crimes that are related directly to drug abuse. People involved in drug abuse can often become violent and engage in family violence related crimes. Furthermore, people hooked on drugs have a tendency to rob or commit burglaries finance their drug of choice.
The Aransas Pass Police combats drug related crimes proactively by performing covert operations into detecting drug dealers and consumers and going after those sources. The Aransas Pass PD investigators involved also offer money to pay for information leading to drug related information to help combat these drug crimes. If you would like to assist as an informant paid by the department, contact our investigations captain.
