Mexico City: Mexican police have recovered more than 9,000 US travel visas that were stolen last month in the northern border state of Tamaulipas, officials said Friday.

Officers found on Thursday boxes containing 9,382 visas inside a sport-utility vehicle with Texas license plates that had been abandoned in a shopping center parking lot in the city of Matamoros.

A truck carrying the documents was stolen on June 7 in another border city, Reynosa, which, like Matamoros, is a bastion of the Gulf drug cartel.

Tamaulipas state prosecutor Ismael Quintanilla Acosta told Milenio television that 12,600 visas had been stolen.
