and go back into the bushes on the other side of the road. of course they are trying to get out of there, get out of the range of the camera. >> that's dangerous for her, too. what if they are armed, right? >> those are huge drugs of bales on their back. to me it looks like 200 pounds of drugs. they go back into the weeds. but watch. one guy returns to literally cover his tracks. >> oh, my god, i've never seen anything like this. >> allison said she's never seen it either. in fact, since the wall had been built last year, she's barely seen any migrants coming and going, let alone this kind of drug activity. due to allison and her boyfriend, the suspects were caught.

because gas prices are so high, there's now a gas black market. they are going inside the actual pump itself to the place that counts the gallons and the amount of every gallon so that it's not reading. it can allow the gas to flow at a much lower cost. they will park their cars there, pretend they are checking under their hood, cleaning their windshield, and they are pumping literally 300 gallons of gas. >> are there barrels in the back of the van? >> they rig up their cars in order to carry large amounts of gas. they are doing it inva vans, pickup trucks. >> where are they keeping the stuff? >> warehouses, like makeshift fuel pumps and they are selling it for $1 to $1.50 less per gallon. in this particular video, they say these guys got away with 290 gallons of gas.
in total over two days of gas they rigged different pumps they stole nearly $50,000 worth of gas. i always thought the natural enemy of the paper boy, the neighborhood dog, right? they chase him around the neighborhood. but not for 14-year-old jackson in smithfield, utah, he's got a whole new -- >> made a weird noise like a grunting noise. it's dark. i saw this figure, looked over and said, what the heck is that. >> what was it? >> voldemort. >> not voldemort from harry potter. this voldemort. >> a goat. >> cross eyed goat. >> lived down the street. voldemort got off his chain and started chasing jackson around the neighborhood. >> it freaked me out when it
stood on its back legs and put its front legs around me and knocked me off. >> voldemort knocked jackson off his bike. then the dude has to run from this thing. he ends up going up a tree and is stuck in a tree for an hour. jackson's parents file a missing child report. police get a report about a child stuck in a tree. they intervened and rescued jackson. he's hearing it from his classmates. >> they are like hey, goat boy. why are you afraid of goats? i was that was a freaky goat, it was possessed. >> you know what happens. when you say voldemort, he comes. he's the guy who made a bet with his buddies to -- >> dunk his head in a bucket full of urine. >> turns out he's no ordinary
