Video: Smugglers from Mexico fail an attempt to hop border in Jeep Cherokee

Jeep Cherokee Stuck

U.S. border patrol agents came up on a couple of suspected smugglers recently trying a whole new scheme to get across the border.

The pair were attempting to drive an older model Jeep Cherokee over the border fence using a makeshift ramp on either side, but failed miserably when the SUV got stuck at the top.

Spencer Tipppets, Border Patrol spokesman told KMOV News that the Cherokee was seen just after midnight on the Mexican side of the border, and the two potential smugglers took off.

Agent Enrique Zarate says “We’ve also seen attempted smugglers trying to ramp over the Normandy barrier using sandbags to build a bridge.”
