TUCSON - The past three days have been busy for Tucson Sector Border Patrol agents.
Most recently, agents pulled over a vehicle near the State Route 86 checkpoint Sunday. They say a background check revealed that both the driver and passenger had warrants out for their arrest.
Also, agents say they found a stolen, loaded .45-caliber weapon and 34 grams of meth in the vehicle.
Also Sunday, at the I-19 checkpoint, two U.S. citizens were arrested, after a canine team showed interest in the trunk of their vehicle and agents discovered two people hiding inside it.
On Frida, agents working the same I-19 checkpoint arrested a Mexican national. He was traveling in a commercial shuttle van when agents found a pound of methamphetamine taped to the inside of his clothes. The drugs are valued at $10,000.
