US says truck hijacked in Mexico, crossing cards stolen

Posted:

 The U.S. Embassy in Mexico says a truck carrying border crossing cards was hijacked in northern Mexico and the documents stolen.

   The embassy says in a statement Wednesday that the theft occurred on June 7 "in northern Mexico," without specifying where.

   The truck was making a trip from the United States to U.S. Consulates in the cities of Monterrey and Guadalajara.

   Border crossing cards are a sort of visa required for Mexicans crossing at land borders.

   An electronic alert has been issued so that the stolen cards cannot be used to cross the border.

   The cards were re-issued for the intended holders, but they have also been advised of the robbery in case the cards are used in attempts at identity theft.
