Feds: More than 60 migrants arrested after serving drug search warrant at 2 Arizona homes

PHOENIX (AP) — Federal authorities say they arrested over 60 immigrants suspected of being in the country illegally while serving drug-related search warrants at two Phoenix-area homes.

The DEA says about 50 people were arrested at home in Phoenix while a law enforcement task force that includes the Border Patrol executed a search warrant. Another 10 to 15 people were also taken into custody at a home in Chandler.

Footage taken by local TV station shows several dozen people sitting in an alleyway outside a home in west Phoenix. Police have not said what led to the investigation or whether other suspects were arrested.
