DAILY CALLER — Mexican cartels have been using an Arizona mountain range just south of Casa Grande in Pinal County for years as a lookout for their scouts who keep an eye on incoming shipments of drugs.
Detective Eddie Castro told CBS 5 News that Mexican cartels are “radioing in, letting the smugglers know when it’s time to start going.”
The Pinal County Sheriff’s Office is well aware that the mountain range south of Casa Grande and next to what is called the Hidden Valley is frequently used by drug cartels.
“We’ve seen the big marijuana loads. We’ve seen cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine. We’ve kind of seen them all come through here,” Castro told CBS 5. “We’ve been told from five to seven scouts are sitting in this area and guiding them through here.”
