A rollover crash involving suspected smugglers resulted in several injuries on Sunday. Authorities are launching a campaign aimed at individuals who are coming to Cochise County intent on picking up undocumented migrants but often end up crashing or fleeing pursuit at high speed.

The message from law enforcement is simple — come to Cochise County to transport migrants for a quick buck and you’re going to jail.

The Cochise County Sheriff’s Office and the County Attorney’s Office, in conjunction with the Border Patrol, Sierra Vista Police and the Arizona Department of Public Safety, are launching a campaign aimed at individuals who are slipping into the area daily, intent on picking up undocumented migrants and delivering them to Phoenix or Tucson in exchange for cash.
