Religious Roundup

Pima County Sheriff deputies arrive at Molino Basin in the Catalina Mountains in October 1975 to serve a writ of habeas corpus on Iowa resident Bruce Surber who had earlier disappeared with the "Jesus People." About 25 deputies went to the site where the group was camped and stayed for five hours. The group was identified as a religious cult. Deputies said the group consisted of 75-100 men, women and children. They were segregated into various groups: single men, single women, married couples and their children. Juvenile authorities and health officials joined the deputies and found the children to be well cared for and the camp clean. No runaways were found among the juveniles. The members were described as being polite but silent. Surber was removed from the group and reunited with his wife. Tucson Citizen file photo
