Couch Patrol Captures Crowd
Remote Camera System in Action Again

American Border Patrol -- July 31  
Mounted Border Patrol race across the desert at night in pursuit of fleeing illegal aliens.

American Border Patrol's Operation Virtual Vigilance paid off again Tuesday evening. Shortly after 10 p.m, a keen-eyed volunteer spotted something moving in the brush just north of the border. A closer look confirmed that a group of illegal aliens had crossed the border and was headed north toward Arizona highway 92 for pick up. The volunteer, operating the camera over the Internet from hundreds of miles away, notified the Border Patrol. They hadn't seen the group. For nearly thirty minutes the volunteer stayed on the line and guided mounted Border Patrol agents in for the apprehension.
