U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers discovered four Chinese nationals packed into the trunk of a car intending to cross into the United States from Mexico on Tuesday.
According to officials, a CBP dog alerted border agents to stop a 2014 Chrysler 200 that was attempting to cross the border at San Ysidro, California.
Officers opened the trunk of the vehicle and found three men and a woman, all Chinese nationals, who did not have legal permission to enter the United States.
A 24-year-old male who is a U.S. citizen was driving the vehicle and is expected to face charges of attempted human smuggling.
“Concealing persons in vehicles is dangerous and could have severe consequences,” warned Pete Flores, director of CBP field operations in San Diego. “San Ysidro CBP officers stopped a violation of our immigration law and were able to resolve the incident safely.”
