I am in possession of a number of photos of large stockpiles of weapons recovered seemingly by the Mexican authorities on the Mexican side of the border. I have not been able to confirm a source for these photos yet and so they are not posted here.

2 Found Shot Dead Near Illegal Border Crossing in Arizona
Update 2 Bodies Found in Pinal County Desert
CASA GRANDE - Pinal County officials found two dead bodies in the desert off I-8 and milepost 150, not far from where a deputy was shot and injured in April.
Dispatch received a 911 call in Spanish from a man Sunday night stating that he and a friend had been shot. Then the cell phone signal was lost.
About an hour later, officials found the victims, dead. Two weapons, one an automatic rifle, were found nearby.
"Detectives are telling us that this scene is in an area considered a migrant camp, where people are dropped off... a transition point where they'll be picked up and moved to drop houses in the valley," says Lt. Tamatha Villar.
The victims had tattoos indicating that they're from the area. The victims were not carrying IDs, but one had a birth certificate on him so blood-soaked it could not be read. The Pinal County Sheriff's Office has not made a conclusion on the victims' legal status.
The area is a hot spot for human smuggling and illegal activity. Investigators aren't sure if the two men were part of the drug trade or just victims of the violence there.
