NOGALES, Ariz. – Federal authorities say they have seized more than 32,000
rounds of ammunition from a stash house at the southern Arizona border.
Special agents with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland

being staged to smuggle into Mexico.

rounds; 5,000 .38 Super rounds; 3,500 .45-caliber rounds; and 1,000 10 mm
