Border Patrol Stops Driver Coming From Mexico, Discovers 4 Chinese Nationals Hiding In The Trunk
Via Breaking 911:
SAN DIEGO – U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers at the San Ysidro port of entry thwarted an alleged human-smuggling attempt Tuesday after discovering four Chinese nationals concealed in the trunk of a vehicle.
“Concealing persons in vehicles is dangerous and could have severe consequences,” said Pete Flores, Director of Field Operations for CBP in San Diego. “San Ysidro CBP officers stopped a violation of our immigration law and were able to resolve the incident safely.”
The incident occurred at about 5:45 p.m., on Mar. 14, when a 24-year-old male U.S. citizen, entered the San Ysidro border crossing driving a 2014 Chrysler 200. While the vehicle was at the booth for inspection, a roving CBP Canine team’s Narcotic/Human Detector Dog alerted. Officers examined the vehicle’s trunk and discovered four individuals crammed inside.
