EDINBURG, Texas — Border patrol agents in South Texas have some pretty wild stories about the weird ways criminals try to smuggle in people and drugs.
But they say one case this week was downright dangerous.
CBP agents stopped a Ford pickup hauling a flatbed trailer at the Javier Vega Jr. checkpoint in Sarita.
A K9 alerted them that something wasn’t right, so they did a more detailed inspection. That’s when they found 12 undocumented immigrants trapped inside a rigged compartment under the trailer.
