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
Security Investigations acted on information they developed about a stash house
in south Nogales.

Agents say they discovered a large cache of ammunition that they suspect was
being staged to smuggle into Mexico.

Seized were 10,000 7.62-caliber rounds; 8,000 .223-caliber rounds; 5,000 9 mm
rounds; 5,000 .38 Super rounds; 3,500 .45-caliber rounds; and 1,000 10 mm
rounds.

ICE officials said Monday that no arrests have yet been made in the case, which
remains under investigation.
