National guard leaving border; Nogales ammo bust

Posted: Updated:

National guard troops along the Arizona-Mexico border will leave the second week of June, as planned.

Homeland Security officials estimate the troopers helped seize more than 14,000 pounds of drugs and apprehend 7,000 illegal immigrants.

Governor Brewer calls the end of the deployment disappointing because she feels drug and human smuggling remain a threat to the state.

And Border Patrol stopped about 5,000 rounds of ammunition from being smuggled into the Mexican drug trade.

Three people wearing backpacks and dress in black tried to make it across the border.

They left the backpacks behind and ran off when agents reached them.
