- After Action Report -
Saturday, July 15-17th, 2011
OLIS II, also known as Operation Line in the Sand II was conducted over the weekend (July 15-17, 2011). Some of us jumped the gun a little and started on Tuesday night with various activities. By Friday evening, our operation in the Sonoran Desert National Monument was in full swing. National Socialist Movement members and supporters from Arizona, California and Georgia attended.
On Saturday, it was around noon when a suspicious vehicle drove past our base camp waving and blowing his horn. Apparently, he wanted to get our attention. Well, it did get the attention of those in camp. After a few short minutes over a couple of miles, the vehicle, loaded with a large quantity of marijuana found itself in the custody of the Border Patrol.
I responded to the scene with a couple of reporters and cameras. At the time, I was giving interviews to InMaricopa.com and ABC Nightline. I explained that even large loads like this were common and that a thousand or more pounds of marijuana seized by agents is just part of the cost of doing business to the cartels.
There was no hiding this load. I was able to detect the strong smell of marijuana from more than 50 feet away. Only moments after the truck was towed, a pair of officers from the gang task force arrived on the scene and asked me how I was doing. I told them that the load vehicle was already picked up and escorted away.
PCSO seizes over $1M in marijuana from abandoned truck
"A tip from a confidential informant led to a major marijuana seizure near Maricopa.
The tip came into the Pinal County Sheriff's Office on the morning of July 11ht, according to PCSO spokesman Tim Gaffney. The informant said that a possible “load vehicle” carrying illegal drugs was traveling through the Vekol Valley, south of Interstate 8." http://maricopa360.com/?p=11424#more-11424
Compare the photos in the news story with the ones I took of a different load vehicle five days later. They look very much the same.
United States Code: Title 10 – Armed Forces, Sec. 311. Militia: composition and classes
(a) The militia of the United States consists of all able-bodied males at least 17 years of age and, except as provided in section 313 of title 32, under 45 years of age who are, or who have made a declaration of intention to become, citizens of the United States and of female citizens of the United States who are members of the National Guard. http://usgovinfo.about.com/blusmilitia.htm
During a patrol early Sunday morning, volunteers encountered three drug smugglers who were in danger of becoming casualties of the intense heat of the Arizona desert. One of the subjects had a small quantity of marijuana. One, if not all three of these men could have died if they spent another day without water.
Not only do we look for law breakers, we also provide humanitarian aid to those in distress. Our critics tend to overlook this fact when they call us names.
