Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument

National Park News

On March 28th, rangers tracked a group of suspected drug smugglers into the Alamo Canyon area of the park, an area open to and frequented by visitors. The smugglers dispersed when approached by rangers, but two were caught and six backpacks with 291 pounds of processed marijuana were seized. The two men – Omar Sandoval-Ventura and Jose Martin Burgos-Diaz – were convicted of smuggling. Burgos-Diaz was sentenced to 13 months in federal prison earlier this year; on October 24th, Sandoval-Ventura was sentenced to 24 months in federal prison.
