It's being called one of the biggest prison breaches in Mexico, and it's right across our border. More than 140 prisoners have reportedly broken out of a prison in Nuevo Laredo.
According to media outlets, the prison break happened in the early hours of the morning, when about 148 inmates escaped. However, they are not releasing any other information at this time. Many of the prisoners are believed to be serving sentences for drug trafficking, reports said. Authorities were not immediately available for comment. The last big prison break was back in September, when 85 prisoners escaped from a jail in the nearby border city of Reynosa. Authorities discovered in July that prison officials had allowed convicts out of jail in North Western Durango state to carry out revenge attacks before returning to cells for the night.
