PROGRESO – Cars stolen from the U.S. and driven south across the border are being recovered less often.

An agency in charge of such cases, the National Insurance Crime Bureau, claims cartel violence is making the job riskier.

It’s called vehicle repatriation, a treaty between the U.S. and the Mexican government to recover stolen vehicles.

KRGV’s Carolina Cruz spoke with Roger Morris, the chief communication officer at NICB. He says the process can take anywhere from a couple days to years.

If your vehicle has been stolen, you can report it to their website or search the database and see if it’s been declared unrecovered or salvaged.
