Courtesy Courtesy –

The Drug Enforcement Administration has a new way for people in the Rio Grande Valley to submit anonymous tips about suspected drug activity.

The program launched about a month ago and is called TIP411.

Anyone with a cell phone can text the number 847411 (TIP411). Start the text by typing RGV then the desired message. The entire message goes directly to a local DEA agent. The agent can then message back and forth in real time. Pictures and video can also be sent.
