Pinal County Sheriff: Mexican drug cartels now control parts of Arizona

The recent shooting of 2 men could be the result of the ongoing battle between Mexican drug cartels now spilling over deep into Arizona. Pinal County investigators say an area known as the smuggling corridor now stretches from Mexico's border to metro Phoenix. The area - once an area for family hiking and off road vehicles - has government signs warning residents of the drug and human smugglers. Night vision cameras have photographed military armed cartel members delivering drugs to vehicles along Highway 8.
