Tucson Border Patrol agents have arrested an alleged human smuggler after three immigrants were found locked inside the toolbox of a pickup truck. Trapped in the box, the agents discover the immigrants after a K-9 search.
Agents assigned to the Three Points station in the Tucson Strip last week responded to a request for assistance from the Tohono O’odham Police Department, according to a tweet from Patrol Agent John R. Maudlin.

The agents arrive at the scene and conduct a preliminary search with the K-9 team. I alerted K-9 that there might be drugs or human cargo in the truck. A physical examination of a toolbox locked in the bed of the truck discovered three immigrants. The migrants had no way of escaping in the event of a plane crash or abandonment by the smuggler.
Maudlin stated that the man, a US citizen, now faces criminal charges for “flagrant human trafficking.”
The next day, Douglas Station agents stopped a pickup truck with fake license plates, Maudlin tweeted. Agents notice a group of suspected immigrants entering the truck near Douglas, Arizona.
After stopping the driver, the agents found 13 immigrants — including two children — crammed dangerously into the cab and bed of the truck.
Maudlin said the people smuggler showed no regard for the safety of the camouflaged migrants packed into the truck.
