Heard in Federal Court: A young Hispanic defendant was in Federal Court after being arrested the second time for smuggling drug packets. He served jail time for the first arrest. The judge asked him, “Why would you do the same crime again knowing you might serve jail time again?” The young man answered, " I am poor, it is my way to survive."
Sad Find on May 16th: The Search on May 16th found a dead mountain lion at the top of Warsaw Canyon Road, near Ruby Road, southeast of Arivaca. It was an older adult but had not been dead long. There were no obvious wounds or causes of death. Photos were sent to Sergio Avila at the Desert Museum. He said it had not eaten in weeks, may have been sick or injured, and may have died of old age or in a territorial fight with a younger lion.
