I remember the caretaker of the Gold Button mine (also in the Bradshaw's) was found dead in a car trunk. Turns out some meth heads were trying to take over the caretakers job so they killed him.

Didn't hear about that one. Too bad he didn't live and work down on the border where it's safe and there's no crime.

Yeah, he might have been overwhelmed by a horde of Honduran women looking for asylum. :25r30wi:

It is humorous how boys afraid of the dark will tell ghost stories around the campfire. When they grow up they start telling spooky stories of dangers lurking behind the bushes in the desert. For some it is as far as their story telling and imagination will ever develop. It is as far as their taste for a real fight will ever evolve as well.

They arm themselves and go bravely out into the emptiness where crime is virtually unheard of. But they dare not strap on that weapon and venture into the places where the people they are so afraid of actually inhabit.

You won't find one camouflage cosplayer with his weapon where there is any chance of having to use it. We have entire urban areas infested with criminals that are exactly what we pretend are swarming across the border. Yet there are no patriots with sidearms to defend those places at all. They are out in the empty desert where there is no chance of having to confront anyone except a sick woman with a child or a skinny teenage boy that has been walking for a month.

You won't find a single wannabe operator anywhere near where the action is happening. They don't strap on those guns because they are dealing with danger. They strap on those guns because they feel vulnerable without them. This is a product of all the ghost stories around the campfire. It is not about facing danger because the area along the border is and always has been one of the safest and quietest places in the entire country.

All these guns and no one to point them at except each other.

Did they get the job?  I am also curious when abouts this incident took place?

You were probably in grade school.😉

Second arrest in two years for marijuana smuggler 

Friday, April 3rd, 2020

"U.S. Border Patrol agents arrested Sierra-Garcia, 20, leading a group of marijuana smugglers for the second time in two years Sunday, just a few miles from where he was arrested a little more than a year ago for the same crime. His arrest last Sunday was typical of the “cat-and-mouse” scenario agents play out against smugglers in the state’s rugged Bootheel. Sierra-Garcia was arrested by Border Patrol agents after a surveillance system spotted a group of five people carrying large objects on their backs and heading north near N.M. 9. Border Patrol agents swept in with a K-9 unit, which led them to four burlap bundles containing about 50 pounds of marijuana each.

In January 2019, according to court records, he and three other men were arrested by Border Patrol agents about eight miles south of Playas with 135 pounds of marijuana after being spotted by a National Guard helicopter. The men, all in the country illegally, readily admitted they were carrying the marijuana. 

Sierra-Garcia had been deported in 2018 after being stopped by Border Patrol agents in Hidalgo County after crossing the border illegally. He had been in the county about a week before he was arrested and apparently knew the route the marijuana backpackers were expected to take. It can take backpackers a full day or more to get the marijuana they carry to Rodeo, and even longer if they have to reach I-10. If they are successful, they are met by other smugglers, already in the United States, who will transport the marijuana and the backpackers to the Tucson area.

In the 2019 case, Sierra-Garcia and the backpackers pleaded guilty. The backpackers received sentences of around three months each and were then deported.

As the guide for the group, Sierra-Garcia was sentenced to five months but deported before completing his sentence . . ."
