Six Drug Smugglers Arrested, Seventh Injured And Medevaced

Chiricahua National Monument

National Park News

A group of drug smugglers was detected moving through the park on August 6th. Border Patrol agents began tracking them and took them by surprise while they were taking a rest break. Six smugglers with drug packs were captured after an extended foot chase, but two of them managed to get away – one by jumping off a 30-foot-high cliff. Blood was found at the base of the cliff, but the injured smuggler could not be located. Later that day, rangers received a report of a badly injured person near the main park road. It’s believed that he’s the man who jumped off the cliff. He was suffering from lacerations to the head, a broken jaw, a broken arm, a broken hip and other traumatic injuries, and was flown to a medical facility in Tucson for treatment
