- After Action Report -
Wednesday, July 27, 2011
We conducted a patrol last night (Wednesday, July 27, 2011) and investigated drug smuggler spotter positions overlooking a popular smuggling route in the Sonoran Desert National Monument. Evidence, including camp sites, pots, pans and clothing were discovered. Human feces was also present and was rather fresh. We will be returning to this area for further patrols.
Sentry's were posted near a patrol extraction point. At approximately 9:00PM a Border Patrol unit arrived with four persons aboard. An agent inquired as to who we were and what we were doing. As usual, they were cordial. They departed after nearly 30 minutes.
It became obvious to us that law enforcement officers that never exit their vehicles and investigate areas off marked roads will not be effective in finding or stopping smuggling activities. It takes boots on the ground to stop the enemy that's pouring across the border.
On the way out of the area of operation, two Pinal County Sheriff's deputies approached us from the north. They turned on their red and blues and we stopped. A deputy approached my vehicle and politely asked us what we were doing out there. Apparently, somebody observed and reported a "blacked out" vehicle in our vicinity. It would appear that we were not the only ones that had eyes on this area.
Note: The PCSO CAD report did not have an entry for the blacked out suspicious vehicle (647v)
