Two CIA Agents Arrested by Minutemen while Crossing Mexican Border with 1300 Pounds of Cocaine

El Paso | A group of Minutemen watching the Mexican Border for illegal migrants and drug traffickers, have proceeded to the citizen arrest of two men in an SUV, carrying 1300 pounds of cocaine.

The volunteers were completely astonished when the two arrestees pulled out CIA ID cards and explained they were actually carrying the drug as part of their duties and that the cargo belonged to the Central Intelligence Agency.

The incident took place last night, in the Chihuahuan desert, near the Texan city of El Paso.

A group of seven Minutemen saw a large black SUV drive rapidly across the border. They chased the vehicle in their own trucks and achieved to immobilize it after a chase of more than 15 miles.

The vigilantes arrested the two men on board and called the border patrol, who proceeded to search the vehicle. They discovered dozens of packages of cocaine, totaling an incredible 618.4 kilograms (1363 pounds).


The search of the vehicle revealed 36 packages of cocaine, all marked with the symbol of the Sinaloa Cartel, representing a black scorpion.

The two men claim to be CIA operatives based in Mexico and explained that the drug was actually part of an operation of the agency.

They presented identity cards that seem to validate their claim, but the CIA spokesperson, Dean Boyd, has officially denied any link between the organization and the two men.

“The CIA doesn’t take part in drug smuggling operations at the US-Mexican border” said M. Boyd. “I do not know, for now, if the men are actually affiliated to the agency in any way, but I can tell you the cocaine doesn’t belong to the CIA.”

Both the border patrol officers and minutemen seem unconvinced, however, and many of them seem to believe that the secret service agency is hiding something.

The U.S. custom services have even announced a thorough investigation to try and verify the two men’s story.

“Both of them had valid accreditations and a receipt for their cargo” says Shawn Francis Miller, spokesman of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection for the El Paso sector. “What drug dealer in his right mind, demands a receipt for 1300 pounds of cocaine? There is really something strange about these guys, and we believe the CIA possibly knows more than what it is ready to admit.” 


The custom services have confirmed that the two men, who can’t be identified due to the Intelligence Identities and Protection Act of 1982, did carry valid CIA identifications and that the vehicle was indeed registered as a service vehicle of the organization.

The two men remain under the custody of the customs services at the moment and are still being interrogated in a facility near El Paso.

They are facing charges of possessing, trafficking and importing illegal drugs, and could face other criminal charges once the investigation is over.

Both the FBI and the DEA have announced that they would collaborate with the U.S. Customs and Border Protection in this case, which as already attracted a lot of attention in Southern Texas.

  1. When I was in Vietnam I had a friend transfer to the USAID. One time they talked about The CIA running drugs out of the Golden Triangle. It seems the CIA has be running drugs for a long time.

  2. Sounds like fast and furious only with drugs instead of guns. Holder is nothing but a Chicago style mafia man who cares nothing about the security of our Country.

  3. Obama must have been getting low on his supply so he sent out his couriers to score some.

      Well, I don’t know what to think about this, but I am glad some minutemen, did the citizens arrest. If they truly are CIA agents, then they knew if they got caught, the govt. doesn’t know who they are now. Strange things do tend to happen like this in undercover work. You can bet that Obama knows what is going on and will sign anything he can to come up with a good reason or just throw those guys out to the buzzards.

      The USA doing illegal operations? Never! The CIA is the most upright and pious organization ever implemented. Ever. Heart attack gun? Iran contra? These are not the droids you’re looking for.
