Statement from Texas DPS

A statement released by the Texas Department of Public Safety South Region explained the basis for the arrests: “As I explained, this area is private.

This statement highlights the legal framework that DPS operates under, emphasizing the collaboration between state authorities and private landowners to address the issue of illegal trespassing.
