Immigration and Customs Enforcement posted its “Top Images of 2017,” offering an inside look into an agency responsible for combating human trafficking, illegal immigration and other crimes.

ICE also posted the agency’s favorite story of the year.

Here are some of the photos:

Mexican authorities found a border tunnel in Nogales that stretched about 80 feet from Mexico to the United States.

The tunnel, which authorities said was “incomplete,” extended about 30 feet into the U.S.

The first illicit cross-border tunnel was discovered in Douglas in 1990. Since then, Border Patrol said it investigates more than 115 tunnels – all but five in the Nogales areas.

“The tunnels, typically primitive in nature, are generally used by transnational criminal organizations to smuggle narcotics into the United States,” the Border Patrol said. “Agents put themselves in dangerous, unnerving situations when they investigate tunnels.”

Here are photos, taken by Border Patrol, of the latest tunnel discovery.

A Secret Service officer accused of sending lewd photos to a Delaware State Police detective whom he believed was a minor is suspected of texting at least 10 minors, The Delaware News Journal reports.  

The new allegations are likely to make it more difficult for Lee Robert Monroe, 37, to get released from jail pending his trial.

Monroe is accused of soliciting sex online in the Delaware State Police case.

But authorities believe that may only be the beginning after allegations surfaced that he texted other minors.

FBI: Grisly, Debated Photos of Syrian Bodies Are Authentic

The photos were so grisly and outrageous that many people doubted they were real.

But after analyzing hundreds of the photos for more than a year at the FBI lab in Quantico, Va., investigators at the bureau concluded that images of emaciated, bruised bodies of political prisoners were authentic and had not been manipulated, Yahoo News reports.

The findings provide more evidence that the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad committed human rights violations.

A former government photographer, who was a defector, smuggled the photos out of the country on a thumb drive two years ago, prompting Assad’s government to adamantly claim they were fake.

FBI Linked Chicago Home to Massive Leak of Nude Celebrity Photos

The FBI has linked an unassuming brick home in Chicago to nearly 600 hacked personal data-storage accounts, many of them belonging to celebrities, the Associated Press reports.

Some of the photos contained nude images of female stars.

According to recently unsealed court documents, the FBI seized computers and cellphones from the home in October but has not filed charges.

The affidavit states that investigators suspected a computer was used at the home to access Apple iCloud accounts of celebrities.

No one answered the door for an AP reporter.

Is Law Enforcement Crossing Line by Taking Photos of Drivers, Passengers?

By Steve Neavling

A license-plate scanning system designed to combat drug trafficking and other crimes has raised serious privacy questions because of the technology’s ability to snap photographs of drivers and their passengers, the ACLU said, reports Bloomberg.

The concern is that authorities will combine the photographs with facial-recognition software.

“This adds a whole other dimension to what is already a very significant surveillance infrastructure,” Jay Stanley, a senior policy analyst for the ACLU, said in an interview. “Facial recognition software holds the potential to super charge this kind of system. We haven’t seen anything like a nationwide systematic infrastructure snapping photographs of Americans as they go about their lives, and this is what this appears it can turn into.”

Records obtained by the ACLU found that the license-plate database had more than 343 million records.

“An automatic license plate reader cannot distinguish between people transporting illegal guns and those transporting legal guns, or no guns at all; it only documents the presence of any car driving to the event,” the ACLU said in a blog post last month. “Mere attendance at a gun show, it appeared, would have been enough to have one’s presence noted in a DEA database.”

Navy Veteran Fired for Posting Photos of Homeland Security Cars on Facebook

By Steve Neavling

A Navy veteran who posted photos to Facebook of Homeland Security vehicles arriving near Ferguson was fired from his job and accused of being a terrorist, CNN reports.

Mark Paffrath worked for the Drury hotel chain where the federal vehicles were amassing in a parking lot when he snapped the photos.

Paffrath said his boss was furious.

“The head of security for Drury was in there, and he pretty much called me a terrorist, saying that I dishonorably served my country for posting those pictures and videos on Facebook,” Paffrath said.

Paffrath said he can’t understand what he did wrong.

“You know, it surprised me, and I was rather shocked that they were there. So I took a short video and a picture of the vehicles. I didn’t give any location out,” he said.

Paffrath, who was born and raised in Ferguson, posted along with the images: “Why are all these vehicles here, I wonder if it has anything to do with Ferguson? #Ferguson, #No justice, no peace.”

He was fired on Saturday, two days after posting the photos.
