Groups of: 5P,1-“10-7”,4,4P,10,2,1,10,1,1,1, “casino”

(P= “46” Drug Packers, A= Armed individuals, U= UltraLight Sighting, LV= Load Vehicle, B=Bailout. UDA= Illegal Alien)

Significant Events in Audio:

— There were MANY groups being worked during this 24 hour period where the size of the group could not be determined.

– Note: excessive temperatures in the desert continue to result in multiple 911 distress calls from Illegal aliens suffering from dehydration. The Border Patrol stated priority mission in the summer time is Search & Rescue, with enforcement taking a secondary role.
–  Note: Continued monsoon storm conditions limit tracking/detection efforts –  Limited activity/participation by DHS “High-Flyer” reconnaissance aircraft has been detected during the last week.

— 0300 –  BP K-9 handler happens on a single bundle of “46” drugs & 3 “drug mules”… one that is “10-7” deceased on the Tohono O’odham Reservation.  The TOPD is called but won’t be out until the next morning.

Agent K-9 handler is intent on searching to find additional bundles of “46” (eventually finds 4 others), but appears to be un-aware that additional bundles means additional “mules” that might not be so willing to give up their contraband.  Other agents find additional “mules” hiding in nearby brush …. 1 with a knife.

— 0900 – 4 bundles of “46” drugs taken into custody on the Tohono O’odham Reservation

— 2100 –  Reading between the lines on this report, a BP agent discounts a Citizen’s report of possible illegal aliens at a nearby (Indian) Casino because “these guys are out in defense of the area of Ajo”. (Concerned Citizens) This despite the fact that Indian Casinos are known “load-up” locations for illegal aliens coming out of the desert (see radio traffic below of smuggler chatter from the Desert Diamond Casino near Why, Arizona). Looks like Indian Casinos are “Got-Away-Zones” for Illegal Aliens in the Tucson BP Sector.
