On Wednesday, October 5, 2011, I was relaxing at home, doing nothing special when my phone rang. It was J.T. Ready calling for back up in regards to drug smugglers and a load vehicle near Amarillo Valley Road. I dropped what I was doing and jumped in my truck and was on the scene in approximately 5 minutes.
J.T. called the Pinal County Sheriff's Office and requested the assistance of a deputy. Unfortunately, the sheriff's office lacked the initiative to respond and referred J.T. to the US Border Patrol. I'm under the impression that the Pinal County Sheriff's Office isn't as interested in catching drug smugglers as they led me to believe. Don't believe everything you see or hear on TV.
Apparently, J.T. interrupted a dope load pick up and caused several subjects, believed to be illegal aliens, to flee. In the rush to escape they left their clothes, blankets, cell phones, steak, chicken, gangsta CD and marijuana magazine behind along the road. We also recovered a payroll stub from "Post Tension of Nevada" belonging to a subject named Felix Miguel"(S.S.N.# 600-53-4579). I guess making a better life for himself through honest work was no longer part of Felix's plan.
The load vehicle hastily drove off leaving a trail of beer cans behind. Oddly, the driver previously claimed that the car was broke down when J.T. initially made contact.
We initiated a search of the area, hoping to recover drugs and/or drug smugglers. After patrolling the vicinity, we set up a temporary command post along Amarillo Valley road and observed the area for activity. Upon completing our patrol, we debriefed at my residence. Then, I fired up my BBQ grill and cooked up the steak and chicken Felix Miguel and his cohorts left behind. Hopefully, Felix and his buddies are stuck sitting in the dirt somewhere with nothing to eat or drink.
This just goes to show how fluid and potentially dangerous of an environment I live in. Every road leading to my home is on a well known drug smuggling route. Things like this can and do happen anytime, day or night.
News: Two Arrested After Traffic Stop Turns Up Guns & Bullet Resistant Vests
On 10-03-2011 at approximately 7:32 pm, a PCSO deputy on patrol near the area on Interstate 8 just east of Murphy Road observed a 1996 Honda Accord traveling eastbound repeatedly strike the white fog line while having a license plate lamp that did not illuminate the plate properly.
Just west of Montgomery Road, the deputy activated his emergency light and initiated a traffic stop. As the deputy exited his patrol vehicle, a passenger in the Honda Accord exited the suspect’s vehicle and fled into the desert on foot. http://pinalcountyaz.gov/Departments/Sheriff/Lists/News/DispForm.aspx?ID=524
Interstate 8 is the primary corridor for a multitude of scum and criminals. People that travel this route are literally taking their lives into their own hands. Poor cell service and extended law enforcement response times make this route all the more dangerous for the traveler.

Incidents like this occur on a regular basis. It became obvious to me that illegal aliens and drug smugglers are bold enough to do as they please, even in broad daylight. Apparently, their confidence is gained through the lack of motivation demonstrated by certain law enforcement agencies. Meanwhile, citizens have to worry about “uninvited guests” showing up at their homes without warning.
What is one supposed to do when the police turn their backs and look the other way when citizens observe and report a felony in progress? Some people will feel helpless while others will empower themselves to deal with the problem. The US Border Guard are the type of people that won't sit idly by and allow the thugs and criminals to take over. They take action.
A healthy and superior nation preserves the liberty of its members. One that fails to fend off invaders, or imposes a form of economic bondage upon its citizens to support nefarious redistributionist schemes is , by all definitions, dysfunctional and inferior.
