CBP seize several firearms and thousands of rounds of ammo

TUCSON - Several firearms and thousands of rounds of ammunition headed for Mexico were seized on Monday, Oct. 20th by Customs and Border Protection officers assigned to the Port of Douglas.

CBP officers conducting routine outbound operations referred a 22-year old Nogales, Arizona man for further inspection of his pickup truck. During the inspection, officials found more than 2,000 rounds of ammunition, five Colt M-4 rifles, one Bushmaster M-4 rifle, one 9 mm Beretta pistol and seven ammunition magazines. Officers ran record queries on the firearms and found the Bushmaster was reported stolen out of Carter County, Tennessee.

Officers seized all the items and handed the man over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigations for further investigation.

Individuals arrested may be charged by complaint, the method by which a person is charged with criminal activity, which raises no inference of guilt. An individual is presumed innocent unless and until competent evidence is presented to a jury that establishes guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.


Feds charge another militia member
Posted: Wednesday, October 22, 2014 8:47 pm

BROWNSVILLE — Federal authorities have arrested another militia member on a charge of being a felon in possession of a weapon.
John Frederick Foerster appeared Wednesday before U.S. Magistrate Judge Ronald G. Morgan on the charge, according to court documents.
Foerster is accused of pointing a weapon at a U.S. Border Patrol agent on Aug. 29 in Brownsville. The documents state Foerster was hiding in brush and pointed a firearm at an agent who encountered him. The agent reportedly fired several shots at the militia man.
Foerster is said to be a member of "Rusty's Rangers," an armed citizen militia group that was patrolling the Texas-Mexico border.
While being interviewed by the agents, authorities ran a background check on Foerster and determined he had a previous burglary conviction in Cameron County, the documents state. Because of his previous conviction, Foerster is not allowed to carry a weapon.
A detention hearing for Foerster is scheduled for Monday.
Earlier in the week, authorities arrested Kevin Lyndel Massey on the same charge. Massey is also believed to be a militia member.
