News From the Border

Providing the news from a different front but from a war that we must win as well! I recognize the poverty and desperate conditions that many Latinos live in. We, as the USA, have a responsibility to do as much as we can to reach out to aid and assist spiritually with the Gospel and naturally with training, technology and resources. But poverty gives no one the right to break the laws of another sovereign nation.

Border Patrol Agent in Ariz. Intercepts Dope Smuggler

Tuesday, March 11, 2008

Yuma, Ariz. – A Border Patrol agent working near San Luis this morning seized 22 bundles of marijuana and a truck.

About 6:30 a.m., the agent observed a white, Ford F-150 heading north on Avenue E away from the United States/Mexico International Boundary. The truck turned around and headed south once he realized he’d been seen by the agent. The agent followed the vehicle back to the International Boundary where the driver abandoned the vehicle and absconded into Mexico.

While securing the vehicle, the Border Patrol agent discovered 22 bundles of marijuana in the bed of the F-150.

The marijuana, weighing 460 pounds, has an estimated value of $368,000.

The narcotics and the vehicle were turned over to the Drug Enforcement Administration.
