RIO GRANDE CITY – A dangerous mix of drugs has Rio Grande City police on alert.

Police told CHANNEL 5 NEWS some people are reaching out about others selling drugs mixed with crystal meth. Assistant Police Chief Jose Solis explained the hard narcotic is becoming a problem in the city.

“Normally we would hear that it was just passing through and it's a cat and mouse game trying to catch the individuals smuggling the drugs but now they're actually making a stop here and selling it out to the community,” Solis said.

He added people came forward saying several street-level drug dealers are mixing crack cocaine with crystal meth.
