U.S. Border Patrol agents from Yuma Sector's Yuma station foiled the
smuggling attempt when agents came across a silver Jeep Cherokee that
had become "high centered" at the top of a make-shift ramp.
Supervisory Border Patrol Agent Enrique Zarate told FoxNews.com that
agents have seen this type of activity in the Yuma Sector before, but
that it is one of the more creative attempts. "We've also seen attempted
smugglers trying to ramp over the Normandy barrier using sandbags to
build a bridge," Zarate said.
The two suspects fled into Mexico just as agents patrolling the
Imperial Sand Dunes area arrived at the scene. The incident is currently
under investigation and any more details on the suspects was not
U.S. Border Patrol seized both the Jeep and ramp equipment after removing the car from the approximately 14-foot-high fence.
