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, totalling 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 custom 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 on this case, which as already attracted a lot of attention in Southern Texas.

    You didn’t think the CIA would acknowledge any active CIA agents, now did you? It’s standard policy to deny all knowledge of any agents.

        CIA got caught by militia? That means they failed the test! The Dallas Cowboys have been more descrete about their drugs, lately…

    Not to worry, 5 other CIA SUV’s filled with cocaine made it through that night. The shadow government is fully funded for another day.

    Now that the FBI and DEA are going to investigate, surly they are innocent of any wrong doing. I see promotions in the futures of these patriots that carry dangerous cargo across a dangerous border, possibly metals.
    I’m pretty sure the arresting citizens will be jailed and fined for multiple felonies.
    All’s well on the border and the rest of the police state of America!

    …at which point they should have been escorted to the side of the road and executed, with the coke spread all around and a message to the “C.I.A.” (whatever that criminal organization is pretending to be today) to try again, because this is SO much FUN!

    “The CIA doesn’t take part in drug smuggling operations at the US-Mexican border”

    AT THE US-MEXICAN BORDER???? This statement OPENLY CONFIRMS that the CIA smuggles drugs everywhere EXCEPT at the US-mexican border! Would anyone care to wager that the CIA smuggles drugs at the US-mexican border as well as everywhere else on the planet???
    Now we know why the military is guarding poppy fields in Afghanistan and WHO is smuggling the Afghani HEROIN!

        I love it when anybody on the web says ‘it’s been in the know…’ When it’s never in the “know”, though Americsn a Gangster was right about a few things – most of all – there is a strong undercurrent for drugs.

    The CIA has been bringing shipments of drugs into this country for years. Now theyve been caught red handed. This government are the biggest drug traffickers ever.

    They’ve been disavowed. Hey the ATF/DOJ ran guns to the cartels, so its not out of the ordinary for them to run drugs also. Especially in this regime.

    • drx1

      Disavowed? They are prob drug runners pretending – OR – they failed their last entrance exam (field test). Militia caught them. I guess they were well regulated.

  • drx1

    The bigger question would be if they had “legit” or forged IDs and does the CIA have CIA IDs for ‘under cover agents – or are they just trying to deliver a package for an overly ambitious mid-level CIA ‘manager’…

  • cherokeeman

    They should have been taken to a secret place and had “enhanced interrogation techniques” applied on them, i.e. shock, sodium pentothal, sleep deprivation, water boarding, spread eagle on the floor for hours on end with scorpions crawling over them, and several other techniques.

    How in the world did this ever make it to being a news article? CIA ID cards on active field agents? Confiding you are on some sort of covert operation with your drugs, to people that just forced you off the road? If they were CIA, they would suck it up, get arrested and for reasons of national security, disappear from the jail later, picked up by fake US Marshals or whatever, not blow your entire operation and embarrass your agency and country.

    Another reason the 2nd amendment to arm a militia needs to be fully supported. Government is corrupt up to their eyeballs and needs to be stopped.

  • Edwin R Williams

    There are a few problems with this story:
    1) Minutemen don’t make arrests; we observe, report and retreat. I speak with Jim Gilchrist on a daily basis and I was on the Minuteman Project Board of Directors, so I know what I’m talking about.
    2) The photo above is of a load of heroin NOT cocaine. Cocaine is marked with simple symbols or not at all.
    3) CIA operatives don’t carry ID when committing crimes. If caught and arrested, they wait for their handler to quietly spring them. They DO NOT identify themselves to civilians.
    4) If 600 Keys of Cocaine was stopped at the border by Minutemen, you would have heard about it from a much more reputable source than this.

  • ken hulse

    well I remember the Reagan days (that hero of the naive right wing) when he traded arms to Iran for money to give to the Contras to destabilize and attack NIcaragua. After US support was banned by Congress, the Reagan administration covertly continued it. These covert activities culminated in the Iran–Contra affair. But that wasn’t enough. The contras needed more money so they started trafficking cocaine in through Florida which started the cocaine and crack cocaine epidemic. The CIA winked and looked the other way because the contras derived money from their cocaine activities. Heck the CIA and Ronnie’s boys started this mess. But don’t tell the dolts who think Reagan was just terrific.
