Borderland Handyman Faces Prison Term For Removing Illegal Aliens From Neighbor’s Property

AZBD Note: Never transport illegal aliens anywhere in a vehicle. It’s not worth being accused of smuggling.


PORTAL — Derrick McCoy, a 20-year-old handyman who moved to the southeast corner of Arizona in July, was planning to spend his Saturday hiking and cutting firewood with his girlfriend.

But when his neighbor sent him a text message at about 8:30 a.m. on Nov. 11, asking him to respond to a call from a local woman who spotted four illegal aliens dressed in camouflage gear near her home, McCoy put on his boots and drove to the scene.

The four men had been spotted in front of the home of Billy and Anna Grossman, his nearby neighbors who had asked McCoy to watch their property while they were out of town.
