Not even a dent along liberal open borders -- Border Patrol Seizes 102 lbs of Narcotics, Arrest 5 Drug Smugglers in Remote Arizona Desert

TUCSON, Ariz. (Breaking911) – U.S. Border Patrol agents and a CBP helicopter crew from Air and Marine Operations arrested five drug smugglers and seized several backpacks of methamphetamine and marijuana, 30 miles east of Lukeville, July 12.

Border Patrol detected the smugglers who illegally entered the country at about 7 a.m. Agents tracked the group for approximately one mile north of the international boundary, while AMO units searched from the air.

After a brief search, CBP agents onboard a helicopter spotted the smugglers hiding underbrush and guided Border Patrol agents to their location.

Four men from Guatemala and one from Mexico were arrested. Seven backpacks containing nearly 90 pounds of marijuana and 12 pounds of methamphetamine were discovered in the brush with the men.

The men and drugs were turned over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement Homeland Security Investigations for further processing and investigation.

U.S. Border Patrol is concerned that this tactic of smuggling methamphetamine on foot through the desert may become a trend for smuggling hard narcotics into the United States. As demand for hard drugs increases, transnational criminal organizations resort to dangerous and diverse smuggling methods to further their deadly enterprise.

We could use your help!

Your contribution is appreciated, if only a couple of bucks, the cost of countering the liberal media is arduous and costly.
