Border Patrol intercepts large fentanyl load at Amado, Arizona Checkpoint

TUCSON, Ariz. – U.S. Border Patrol agents on Sept. 17 seized more than 17 pounds of fentanyl at the Interstate 19 Immigration Checkpoint near Amado, AZ, 12 miles south of Green Valley.

Tucson Sector agents at the primary inspection lane encountered a 25-year-old woman driving a Chevrolet Trailblazer around 10:30 a.m. Following a trained canine’s alert, agents referred the vehicle to secondary inspection, where X-ray scans revealed anomalies within a medical respirator on the backseat. Agents found multiple packages of suspected fentanyl pills concealed inside it.

The U.S. citizen driver from Nogales, Arizona, was arrested and the fentanyl pills and vehicle seized. The case has since been taken over by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration.

Fentanyl is 50 to 100 times more potent than morphine, according to the U.S. Center for Disease Control.

BLM roots for wounded police to die

“Protesters” outside a hospital where two Los Angeles deputies were fighting for their lives after an ambush in Compton shouted, “We hope they die,” according to video and official statements. One of the two people arrested was a reporter, Josie Huang, documenting the protests.

The protest blocked the entrance and exit to the emergency room, and two people were arrested, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff.

Heavy news reported that the two deputies, whose identities have not yet been released, were shot multiple times when they were sitting in a patrol vehicle outside the Compton train station Saturday night. Police released video of the shooting in hopes of identifying the suspect, who was still at large Sunday afternoon.

The protesters chanted, shouted and “oinked” while blocking the entrance to the hospital. At one point, the protesters tried to get inside the emergency room, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. LASD tweeted during the protest, asking the protesters to stop blocking the emergency room entrance and exit.

Both deputies — a 31-year-old woman and a 24-year-old man who have not been identified by the Sheriff’s Department — were shot in the head the evening of Saturday, Sept. 12 while sitting in their patrol car near the Compton Metro station. They

The shooting, which was captured on surveillance video, shows a figure in dark clothes casually walk up a pathway near the Compton Blue Line station, approaching the deputies’ parked patrol car from behind, opening fire only inches away from the window, then returning the way he came.

The female deputy, mother to a 6-year-old boy, managed to get out of the cruiser and help her partner hide behind a concrete pillar for safety, not knowing whether the gunman was still in the area, according to the Los Angeles Times. She then applied a tourniquet to her partner’s arm, which was bleeding.

Update: The unnamed male deputy shot in the attack in Compton was released from the hospital Sept. 16, officials said.

“He has a long road ahead for recovery. But he’s not alone,” Sheriff Alex Villanueva said on Twitter. “We, as a community, are in this together.”

Border Patrol finds $1.4 million of meth at Arizona border

A CBP “canine alert” led agents to the discovery of more than 600 pounds of meth

TUCSON, Ariz. – U.S. Border Patrol agents arrested a U.S citizen after finding methamphetamine in a highly modified work truck at the immigration checkpoint near Sasabe, Arizona, the afternoon of Sept 17.

Around 2 p.m., Tucson Sector agents at the Highway 286 immigration checkpoint encountered a 26-year-old Hereford, AZ, man driving a Ford F-250 utility truck. After referring the vehicle to secondary inspection, they found several packages of suspected narcotics in a compartment hidden beneath the utility portion of the truck – thanks to a Border Patrol canine that alerted agents to potential additional narcotics within the truck’s frame.

Due to the isolated nature of the tactical checkpoint and the complexity of the storage compartment, agents towed the vehicle to the Sasabe Port of Entry in order to safely inspect its highly modified areas as well as the packages of suspected drugs.  In cooperation with the Office of Field Operations, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers and Border Patrol agents discovered more than 600 pounds of meth. The drugs have an approximate street value of $1.4 million, the CBP said.

The truck, meth and driver were turned over to Special Agents from Homeland Security Investigations.
