The photo above is of an MCSO deputy pulling the covers off 10 guys, who are in (a truck) bed together.
These photos are included in a press release from the Sheriff's Office, noting that Sheriff Joe Arpaio's boys are on a hot streak catching "illegal aliens" -- 53 in the last 30 days.
The scene pictured above happened yesterday morning, when deputies found the "suspicious truck" in the southeast Valley, and pulled it over.
