EL PASO - A local congressman is trying to get to the bottom of a Mexican mystery.

Last Tuesday, a Mexican drone crashed on Craddock Avenue in the Lower Valley.

The office of El Paso Congressman Silvestre Reyes says Mexico uses drones in the war on drugs but has no idea why it crossed U.S. air space and crashed in El Paso.

Reyes spokesman Vincent Perez says, "We're still gathering details" from the Department of Homeland Security.

Perez added, "We've had problems with our own unmanned aerial vehicles."

We will let you know when more details are released.

I bet some kids were flying it. Just trying to have a good time.

This stinks of COVERUP!

Who gave the drone back to WHO?

Where did it crash?

HOW did they get it BACK across the border?

A little investigative reporting should be able to uncover some answers!

If this happend last Tuesday, why has it been kept a secret?

Okay so they have money for a drone but yet they still ask the U.S. for money?

When are our politicians gonna figure out the mexican gov't is not a friend to the U.S. They ask for everything and yet give nothing.

We clothe, give free medical, and food to their people and send them home to them. Yet when a U.S. citizen is stuck over there and in the hospital they are held against their will till the hospital fee is paid. Doesn't make sense to help a country that won't even help us.

Hmmm, I'm no professional but if I wanted answers I would have kept the drone until I got what I wanted. That's just me though...I'm not bogged down by bureaucracy; nope, I'm just your average citizen left scratching his head trying to understand why people do the things they do, and why we give up drones that wandered into our airspace and crashed into a private citizen's property so easily. I'm pretty certain Mexico's Govt. would have kept it for some type of ransom.
