Smuggler’s car caught on border fence

Posted:

YUMA, AZ - One or more people attempted to cross the U.S. Mexico border are on the fence, literally.

Yuma Sector U.S. Border Patrol agents foiling smuggling attempt Tuesday helped considerably by the would-be smugglers.

The design of their plan was critically flawed when the make-shift ramp didn't quite perform as needed.

The silver jeep Cherokee was spotted just after midnight in the imperial sand dunes.

As agents arrive, two people ran into Mexico.

Both the jeep and the ramps were taken by border patrol.

The fence is about 14-feet high.
