There was a time when farmers were just concerned with protecting their animals. That’s no longer the case.
“Now I’m worried about am I going to come home at night after work,” said Scott Blevins. The Pinal County farmer and father has every reason to worry.

“I’m convinced somebody’s going to see something they shouldn’t see and somebody’s going to die,” Blevins said.

Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu’s department is doing a heck of a job, and they are still overwhelmed by traffic and crime across the border: a spokesperson said they are “understaffed by 100 deputies.”
Just ask Scott Blevins.
