YCSO Finds Mysterious Bags in Bumble Bee

1/29/24

Personnel from the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office feared they were about to make a gruesome discovery, but it turned out to be something rather innocent.

Last week, deputies were called out to a mine shaft off Bumble Bee Road after a citizen called in and reported what he believed were body bags at the location. After descending the mine shaft, searchers found the bags, but when they opened them, they did not find bodies, just large quantities of food. Sheriff’s Office officials believe the food might have been put there by doomsday preppers.

When the investigation concluded, YCSO personnel left the food where they found it.
