July 5, 2010 -- Glenn Spencer - American Border Patrol
Last night someone stole American Border Patrol banners off the border fence. It is very likely they had to trespass on my property to get to the fence. The thieves would have to have used at least one ladder to remove the topmost sign. I checked with the Border Patrol and they said they had no report of seeing anything, If so, this is incredible since the banners are located just south of the Apache Sky Road camera tower and the tower has two thermal cameras.
I have reported the theft to the Cochise County Sheriff's Department.

10:47 a.m. - After thinking about the theft of the banners, I realized that the crime may have been perpetrated from Mexico, in which case it would have been harder for the Border Patrol cameras to observe the crime.
