Excerpt:

U.S. Border Patrol agents from Yuma Sector’s Yuma station foiled the smuggling attempt when agents came across a silver Jeep Cherokee that had become “high centered” at the top of a make-shift ramp. Supervisory Border Patrol Agent Enrique Zarate told FoxNews. com that agents have seen this type of activity in the Yuma Sector before, but that it is one of the more creative attempts. “We’ve also seen attempted smugglers trying to ramp over the Normandy barrier using sandbags to build a bridge,” Zarate said. The two suspects fled into Mexico just as agents patrolling the Imperial Sand Dunes area arrived at the scene. The incident is currently under investigation and any more details on the suspects was not immediately available. U.S. Border Patrol seized both the Jeep and ramp equipment after removing the car from the approximately 14-foot-high fence.
