Smugglers from Mexico Learn that the Jeep Cherokee is Trail Rated, not Border Fence Rated…

What will they think of next? A group of suspected smugglers attempted to cross the U.S. border on Tuesday using an older Jeep Cherokee and two makeshift ramps on either side of the 14-foot fence at California’s Imperial Sand Dunes.

Their “Trail Rated” plan, however, hit a snag, when the Jeep became stuck on the metal barrier. Border Patrol spokesman Spencer Tippets told KMOV News that the Cherokee was spotted tangling over the fence just after midnight.

U.S. agents approaching the scene saw the two would-be smugglers on the Mexican side of the border trying to free the SUV before they admitted defeat and ran back to Mexico.

Supervisory Border Patrol Agent Enrique Zarate told FoxNews that this isn’t the first time agents have seen this kind of activity in the area: “We’ve also seen attempted smugglers trying to ramp over the Normandy barrier using sandbags to build a bridge.”

A video released by the U.S. Customs & Border Protection agency follows below the break.
