CBP makes several ‘good busts' in one week

June 29, 2010 4:48 PM

SUN STAFF WRITER

In the last week, Customs and Border Protection officers have arrested 14 people and seized $5 million worth of drugs, busts that are helping secure the nation's borders, say officials.

The Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced the seizures and arrests in a news release Tuesday.

Officers arrested a 35-year-old man on June 20 for attempting to smuggle cocaine into the United States. The officers found the cocaine hidden inside panels of a BMW when a narcotic detector dog alerted them to the area, according to the release.

A total of 20 packages of cocaine were removed with an approximate weight of 48 pounds. The cocaine has an estimated street value of $2,165,000.

The man was arrested and turned over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

CBP Public Affairs Supervisor Teresa Small said seizures such as this one are an example of how the CBP is helping secure the nation's borders.

And with officers intercepting the drugs, it's keeping the drugs off the streets, she said.

“This is preventing further crimes from being done in our country,” she said.

A second seizure occurred June 24, according to the release, when officers discovered a package of cocaine taped to the leg of a 16-year-old boy. The officers arrested him and turned him over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement for processing. The cocaine has an estimated street value of $60,000.

“Those are very good busts,” Small said

And with close to 300 pounds of marijuana seized during the last week, CBP officers prevented almost $2.7 million of drugs from entering the country.

“They were all nice size,” she said.

Four vehicles were used in the smuggling attempts. The vehicles included an Isuzu Trooper, a Honda Civic, an Oldsmobile Alero and a Ford Crown Victoria. According to the release, the hiding places varied per vehicle and included the firewall, quarter panels, front/rear bumpers and gas tank.

In addition, eight people were arrested for various outstanding warrants, including one man who turned himself into the CBP. All eight were arrested on charges ranging from absconding while on parole, suspended drivers license, failure to appear, contempt of court and dangerous drugs.

A criminal complaint is simply the method by which a person is charged with criminal activity and raises no inference of guilt. An individual is presumed innocent until competent evidence is presented to a jury that establishes guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.

Chase through Sierra Vista ends with arrest .

06/30/2010
By Derek Jordan
Herald/Review

SIERRA VISTA — Federal agents arrested a man suspected of human smuggling after a pursuit through Sierra Vista on Tuesday.

“ICE agents were involved in a brief pursuit of an alien smuggler as part of an ongoing investigation,” said Vincent Picard, spokesperson for U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement, or ICE.

Sierra Vista police provided assistance in the form of traffic control at two intersections during the pursuit, but did not attempt to pursue the vehicle, said Tracy Grady, public information officer for the police department.

The fleeing vehicle, a gray Ford Excursion with an Arizona license plate, made its way through town around noon, traveling down Wilcox Drive, Fry Boulevard, Coronado Drive and Martin Luther King, Jr. Parkway before finally turning north onto the Highway 90 Bypass, Grady said.

The driver abandoned the vehicle after attempting to drive through a barbed wire fence on the north side of the bypass north of Industry Drive, where ICE agents chased him.

The vehicle pursuit ended just yards away from the backyard of resident Jeff Stevenson.

“I was out there watering the garden and all of a sudden I hear this screeching of tires, and here comes this truck across the backyard,” Stevenson said.

The driver of the Chevrolet then abandoned the vehicle and ran on foot toward San Xavier Road.

“He bailed out and took off running like a jackrabbit,” he said.

ICE agents were quick to follow.

“Three cops hit the brakes and there’s another big cloud of dust, and they take off chasing him,” he said.

Eventually, the suspect was apprehended and taken into custody.

“The driver faces federal prosecution,” Picard said.

Picard would not elaborate on the nature of the investigation that led to the pursuit.

This was the second human smuggling-related pursuit in the Sierra Vista area in five days.

On Friday, Sierra Vista police tried to pull over a 2000 Chevrolet Suburban on Highway 90 near the Sierra Vista Municipal Airport when the vehicle fled.

Speeds of more than 100 mph were reached as the Suburban traveled through Huachuca City before turning east on Highway 82, about which time police ended their pursuit, said Sgt. Lawrence Boutte.

As it was believed the driver was smuggling illegal immigrants into the country, U.S. Border Patrol was contacted during the pursuit, Boutte said. Border Patrol agents later found the vehicle abandoned along a dirt road.

These skills combined with technology, manpower and infrastructure, continue to enhance and support operational control of our nation’s borders. From Oct. 1, 2009, to May 31, 2010, the Tucson Sector Border Patrol seized more than 712,000 pounds of marijuana exceeding $570 million in value.

Arrests

Amid heavy summer travel-season traffic, drug-detection dog Lady alerted officers to the 2008 Dodge Avenger at about 10:10 a.m. Wednesday. Concealed inside the engine compartment firewall, they reportedly found 95 packages containing 48.29 pounds of methamphetamine.

Felipe Placencia Aguirre was arrested and turned over to special agents from Immigration and Customs Enforcement to face federal drug trafficking charges. Aguirre was booked into the El Paso County jail with no bond.

About six hours later, drug-sniffing dog Ozzy alerted agents to the front wall of an empty refrigerated trailer being hauled by a 1994 International truck. Inspection revealed a false front compartment allegedly concealing 550 bundles of marijuana weighing just under 606 pounds.

No arrests were made in that incident, and the investigation is ongoing.

What a coincidence, Maddy. I had a dog named Lady once and now have an Aussie (Ozzy) That's interesting. He has a very high prey drive too. My Lady was a little Black water spaniel mix. she was a good sniffer too. We used to take her too the woods with us when my Dad was taking up target practicing, and to just watch her run around sniffing out squirrels and rabbits then find the neartest stream and jump in for a swim to cool off was a blast. She was a little thing but boy could she sniff out prey.

Deaths of immigrants in the Laredo area decrease

In 2009 a total of 49 deaths of undocumented immigrants were reported in the Laredo area.

Tuesday, July 06, 2010
By: Francisco Díaz

LAREDO, Tx.- After a tragic 2009, when a total of 49 deaths of undocumented immigrants were reported in the Laredo area, during the first six months of 2010 only six deaths have been reported.

Although for the Mexican Consulate General in Laredo a single death represents a tragedy, there is certain optimism because the number of deaths of illegal immigrants has decreased significantly.

"Around this time last year we already had 30 deaths and so far this year there has only been six deaths," the Mexican Consul General in Laredo, Miguel Angel Isidro mentioned.

He added that five of the deaths were due to dehydration and one was related to a car accident. All of the diseased were identified as Mexican citizens.

He regretted that three of the five deaths due to heat stroke took place during the last 30 days, when the temperatures in the region were over 100 degrees under the shade.

The majority of the deaths were registered along the Eastern part of Laredo, near Hebbronville, as well as at the Northeastern part of Webb County, where there are semi desert through which many undocumented immigrants walk.

Consul General Isidro mentioned that the bodies of the Mexicans that died were sent to their cities of origin, and in two other cases they are still working to transport the bodies back to Mexico.

Among the factors that have influenced the decrease in deaths of immigrants is the increase in difficulties to cross the border, especially because the immigration authorities have greater surveillance in the area.

In addition, the consular authorities have developed prevention and education programs to inform and alert on the risks of immigrating illegally to the United States.
