PINAL COUNTY, Ariz. -- An Arizona sheriff said illegal immigrants have been living in caves and operating as drug spotters.
Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu said deputies recently found communications equipment, a supply of food and binoculars in a cave near Sawtooth Mountain in Silverbell.
A Silverbell resident was flying his private plane in July near the mountain when he spotted an individual standing near a cave at Wild Cat Peak. Babeau said when deputies checked out the cave, they found a man was living there illegally.
