Border agents catch 8 sneaking into Arizona

WELLTON, Ariz. — The Border Patrol said its agents seized a loaded handgun
while apprehending eight men suspected of being involved with drug smuggling
near the U.S.-Mexico border in southwestern Arizona.

The Border Patrol said the men were taken into custody Tuesday after agents
encountered them on the Cabeza Prieta National Wildlife Refuge east of Yuma and
west of Lukeville.

According to the Border Patrol, the men entered the country illegally and
appeared to be scouts for a narcotics smuggling operation.
