Wellton Border Patrol Agents Apprehend Eight Men And Seize A Loaded Handgun

United States Border Patrol agents from the Wellton Station apprehended eight men, all illegal immigrants, and seized a loaded handgun at the Cabeza Prieta National Wildlife Refuge Tuesday. Agents patrolling in the wildlife refuge encountered and apprehended the group north of Camino Del Diablo. Near one of the men, agents found a loaded Titan Tiger .38-caliber revolver and 13 loose rounds of .38-caliber ammunition. Based on past experience and evidence found at the scene, agents determined the men were scouts for narcotics smuggling. The men were transported to the Wellton Station for further processing.
