[Ed. – It sounds as if this stash was intended to be picked up from the location it was placed in.]
Two duffel bags filled with 17 rifles, shotguns, handguns, and ammunition were found on a private Texas ranch and confiscated by border officials.
The weapons were taken from a ranch near the Border Patrol’s Carrizo Springs Station in Del Rio, Texas. An unnamed citizen called the agency after seeing a group of suspected illegal immigrants carrying large bags on nearby land Friday. The area is about 25 miles east of the international border.
The agents who responded to the ranch found four handguns and 13 various types of rifles and shotguns wrapped in blankets inside. An unspecified amount of money was also found with the guns and bullets.
