REYNOSA, Mexico – Federal police in Reynosa made a bust at home and now several hundred pounds of drugs and lots of guns are in their custody.

An anonymous tip led authorities to the house. No one was home at the time of the raid. But police did find 10 packages of marijuana and several automatic assault rifles.

They also took into custody a Dodge truck with Mexican plates and over 30 bullet holes. No arrests have been made in this case.

There is a 95-percent chance those assault rifles in Reynosa were bought in the U.S. That’s according to new information being released this morning by the ATF and the FBI.

They’re in El Paso at the 5th Annual Border Security Conference. Officials from both sides of the border say they are getting lots of results from Project Gunrunner, where U.S. and Mexican authorities share information and can track individual guns.

The director of the FBI also says they are working with Mexican officials as part of an anti-kidnapping effort in Laredo.
