2 Dead in Aizona Desert in deadly drug dispute

Lucio R Borderland Beat republished from KPHO AZ Thanks goes out to the reader who sent in the story

“One of my concerns about the violence is the fact that may spill over to this big metropolitan area of Phoenix and other places”


The search continued for several suspects who shot and killed two men and wounded two others in a gun battle six miles east of Gila Bend.

The shootings occurred a high-traffic corridor known for human and drug smuggling.

The bodies of the two men were found by Maricopa County sheriff's investigators in a cave about six miles east of Gila Bend Monday afternoon. Two other men who were seriously hurt were airlifted to the West Valley Hospital in Goodyear.

“We're hoping one will be able to talk and give us more information,” Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio said at a news conference Tuesday afternoon.

The names and ages of the dead and wounded were not released.

Semi-automatic weapons and other evidence found in the cave were seized.


The hot dry elements of the Az desert,  traffickers of humans and drugs, La Migra hunting down migrants,all  make success unlikely for undocumented migrants crossing the rugged desert.  The crosses above, were made by inmates of tent city and represent the bodies of migrants discovered
One of the wounded men called 911 around 12:30 p.m. Monday reporting he and three others had been shot, according to Arpaio. The caller said the incident had occurred one hour earlier and it was unclear why he had delayed calling.

Arpaio said sheriff's SWAT officers located the area and set up a perimeter to protect the investigators from any threat. No suspects were located.

“We have an intensive investigation going on to identify the shooters,” Arpaio said.

A number of bales of marijuana were found in the area but they've not been linked to the shooting scene.

“One of my concerns about the violence is the fact that may spill over to this big metropolitan area of Phoenix and other places,” Arpaio said.


Last week, MCSO, working with border patrol agents, made three significant seizures of drugs near Gila Bend. A total of 12 people were arrested and more than $500,000 worth of drugs were seized.

    1. It is if it were made legal. The government and the laws they create are causing the problem. Open your mind and look at the picture. We are the largest consumer of illegal drugs in the world, but we blame others for our addiction problem.

    2. But why you say we i do not use any kind of drugs. And drug use is not a victimless crime.

    3. It is a "WE" because the drug traffickers, the users, the addicts, and the money launderers hide in our midst, and we work on their corporations, and our US government feeds them their Corporate Welfare Queens' funds and tax breaks, by the billions of dollars every month...
      The government of the people
      By the government,
      For the rich.
      It is what it is nowadays, the plain truth, not trying to offend anyone...
      But if anyone feels offended, I DO NOT CARE...

  2. If this is a high traffic corridor then why aren't National Guard troops or military set up in the area on a quasi permanent basis. It seems everyone knows this is a HIDTA even the traffickers but it seems the vast majority of drugs or humans smuggled make it safely across the border and well into the US without fear of detection or apprehension. Even the cartel "advance party" lookouts seemingly for the majority go undetected. I would have to say for the better part of reasoning that probably more then 80% of product (drugs or whatever) reach and enter the USA safely with absolutely no seizures or apprehensions. We need troops in these HIDTA corridors to effectively reduce what is entering our country. IMO

    1. Good luck convincing Congress on where your tax $ are supposed to be spent.

    2. hey dummy, maybe because the US Govt wants "some" flow of drugs to enter the US? What woukd happen to lawyers, cops, social services, priscons, Mexican demand of weapons? It's an economy buddy. And where the hell do you come up with the 80%??? What type of expert are you???

      Delete
    3. Why would you never think the US really would ever really want to solve this. Everyone, makes too much money off of this trade from the Sheriffs dept, to the courts, the lawyers, to the private prisons. Your hoping the people who profit from it will also cut the head off the golden goose. Dream on.

      Delete
    4. Because the government, both American and Mexican, just pretend to do something about it. There is too much money to loose if the flow of guns, drugs and people stop.

      Delete
    5. That would be a good idea but they would not. Not because they dont have money or the man power they just would not supply and demand it is like the drug houses some been operating selling drugs for years i know one that has been running for 10 or more police know selling 24/7 and nothing has ever happened to them some last months or years while they "invistigate"

    6. For this guy at 9:30am. Why don't you go yourself and set a perimeter in the desert. Do something instead of complaining about it

    7. Sorry to burst your bubble! but the US govt is never going to stop this diamond mine (if you did not now this already). Hears a small list of some who profit:

      Banks,
      Swat,
      Sheriff's,
      local police,

      DA,
      courts,
      state prisons,county jails,private prisons,
      Owners of la bestia (train called the beast)which has US,MX owners. Also sorry but local so called hero Joe Arapio is not going to do nothing he is on his way out.

    9. Like I said as I posted, IMO. It was my opinion I just voiced it. thanks for your responses it was both pos and neg....it was only as I said IMO, but I kind of already knew what the responses would be. I know of the corruption and national promises aka guarantees, but there has to be some sort of hope along the line. I am not angry at the responses, I understand how others think and how "corporations" work. i just wish things could be logically understood except for monetary gain. Thx, but still hopeful in Memphis.

    11. and forget about the trades. When those institutions are built they aren't made of fairy dust they use: cement, fiber optics, plumeria, electricity. My point is there are many industries that depend on the War on Drugs that are not immediately apparent- they exist on the periphery

  5. I'm from Phoenix and I doubt two drug trafficking groups confronted each other down there in Gila Bend, it is known here that armed groups unrelated to cartels stalk drug mules and rob them, this sounds like a botched robbery though, just speculating here.

    1. Who are those that are unrelated to cartels sorry im just curious

    2. He's right I'm from South Phoenix and I know a couple ppl Unrelated to cartels who make a pretty good living off of robbing alleged cartel members

      Delete
    3. Would "...unrelated to cartels..." be 'garden variety thugs'? Howabout, 'fair weather predators'? Sounds like a case of 'shoot'n dope and skip'n rope in sunny Gila Bend. Possibly the secretive Gila Bend Bloods or the lowlife Gila Bend Gila Monsters. K.O.

    4. At 12:50 we call them bajadores, or jackers in English.

      They are just fools looking for a quick come up, but they don't last once the cartels or who ever owns the load figure out who they are they get buried in the desert.

      Delete
    5. Bajadores lacraz is the word dedicated to steeling from the cartel but drug mules now carry guns to defend the drugs In my opinion that's what happened an attempt to Jack the load went wrong

      Delete
    6. That's what happened,buried in the desert?Dont they call robbing drug traffikers "Tumledores'? think that's what theyre called in Central America and they are guys that's all they do.Can you imagine the BIG weight that's moved through there?

      Delete
    7. Tumbar means bringing bringing something down, and bajadores, bring down you and your load of whatever...
      --It is like sheriff Arpaio the white apache, he tumba mojados, he les tumba sus drogas, and then les tumba trabajo for free in the prison industries, where the mexican criminals work for free, and no cervezas!!!

    4. One of the biggest problems with the current US Police force, too many former military. Policing the local towns isn't war. You don't kill and ask questions later. Remember to old saying to protect & SERVE. I want cops not military headcases.

    5. The Police Serve and Protect.
      --It is certainly a fact that they serve and protect themselves and their own first and foremost, not aaall of them, but the great majority, like 99.1%...
      --Also profiting from the sacrifices and heroism of officers like those who died on 9/11 has become part of their bargaining chip to become more of a militarized Shock and Awe repressive and murdering force that amerikkkan governments use against their own subdits, because dogs have become real expensive...

Make a story about this corrupt sheriff, who makes his own rules. Technically, it falls under borderland beat, Maricopa county is only abour 3 hours drive from the mex border.

    7. 1:40 and 1:53 the wars are on the Mexican side of the border, here in the states there is plenty to go around for both cartels.

      You have to remember that they were together before and some are even family members and neighbors back in Sinaloa and Sonora, I have cousin who are all CDS and others who are Beltranes. Here they are cool but when back in Mexico it's on.

  9. I know there is a cartel leader raising hell now. One thing they don't want is episodes like this. It turns up the heat on their operations. This may die down but the US won't let this continuously happen. Whoever committed these murders will never be found. Just like the ones that killed the jet skier from McAllen Tx. This is bad for business like they say in the movie "The Arroyo."

  10. There is allready violence in U.S but they don't report most of it. I know someone who works in the casino in Arizona and they told me they find dead bodiesin the parking, sometimes decapitated but they don't see it on media or newspapers. I think because casinos pay good money to government and they don't care what happens as long as they get money.

    6. 3:23 You really are brainwashed. Only one country in the history of mankind has killed 100,000's people with one bomb, Men, Women, Children, Old People and Young Babies, Dogs, Cats and anything else living in the area. Not once but two times. If we do it, it's justified. If we think someone else might have a capacity to do it, they are evil with weapons of mass destruction. The United States is the glorious goodness you are brainwashed to think. Ever wonder why most of the world hates us? We are a dying nation. In twenty years when the Koch Brothers and big business have bought our government will have a government just like Mexico has now. A Nation of Sheep will have a Government of Wolves.

  19. I use to live in Az and had a friend who had family in Douglas. You could see Mexico from her backyard. Az already has enough crazy folks running around. Both citizens and non citizens. They really don't need anymore. I jetted out of that place. Moved there in 2008 and was out in 2012. Never looked back. They had a bad bath salt epidemic with people dancing nude on cars on highways. They had a decapitation in Chandler while I was there and the 49 immigrants laid at the border dead. Yet you talk to anyone in Az and they know nothing about any of this. People lurking in dark places because it is warm enough to do so. That place in itself is crazy. It doesn't need this. I will say, they will make sure this isn't a constant occurrence/ Those folks have plenty of guns there. Way too much crime there for me. I was in Scottsdale and Mesa.

Not that I haven't already (and always have) had that policy for myself . . . Just saying, keep yourself protected and keep your head on a swivel if you live near the Mexico border!
