Laredo Sector Border Patrol conducting checkpoint operations on Interstate Highway 35 apprehended four subjects hidden in a vehicle on Tuesday.
The incident happened at approximately 1:00 p.m. on October 16, when agents encountered a pickup truck in the primary inspection area. A Border Patrol K-9 alerted to the possible presence of illegal contraband in the vehicle, and agents referred the driver to secondary inspection.
Further inspection of the vehicle resulted in the discovery of two subjects concealed behind the back seat of the truck. Two other individuals were found in a locked toolbox in the rear of the truck. Immigration inspections on the subjects determined they were all illegal aliens.
All subjects were taken into custody for processing, and the truck was seized by the Laredo Sector Border Patrol.
