TUCSON – Two truck drivers are being charged for allegedly trying to smuggle 32 migrants across the United States in a refrigerated semi-trailer.
According to Tucson Sector Border Patrol, the semi was sent to secondary inspection after a K9 alerted to the trailer.
“In secondary inspection the truck and trailer were “x-rayed” showing numerous people locked in the rear of the trailer,” according to a news release.
When agents opened the trailer they reportedly discovered 32 individuals inside.
Tucson Sector BP says the individuals were “also ill prepared to be in 47-degree refrigerated trailer as most were wearing short t-shirts.”
