These are photos of a real
raid but the location was nowhere in the proximity of Arizona.
The raid was conducted on May 11, 2010 by elements of the Mexican Army
after the discovery of an organized crime drug smuggling camp 56 KM
(34.8 Miles) south of the city of Monterey, Nuevo Leon in Mexico. Monterey is a
large industrial city approximately 140 miles South of Laredo, Texas,
the closest U.S. border town. That is about 840 miles east
According to a
2010 article by the Mexican new agency, Acencia Reforma, a firefight
broke out with the drug smugglers as the Mexican Army raided their camp
about 550 yards from a highway. Twenty-five drug
runners escaped into the forest abandoning everything. The raid
resulted in the killing of one drug runner and military sources
estimated that they found more than 130 rifles, grenade launchers,
machine guns, a rocket launcher, a box of grenades and hundreds of
cartridges, as well as several vehicles.
