Phoenix Woman Arrested for Smuggling Illegal Aliens Near Gila Bend

By R. Mitchell

TUCSON, Ariz. – U.S. Border Patrol agents working the State Route 85 Immigration Checkpoint arrested a Phoenix woman for smuggling two illegal aliens in her vehicle Friday evening.

At approximately 6 p.m., a Border Patrol canine at the immigration checkpoint alerted to a Nissan Altima with a 33-year-old female driver and juvenile passenger, both U.S. citizens. During a subsequent search, agents discovered a 25-year-old Mexican man and a 22-year-old Guatemalan woman hidden in the vehicle’s trunk. Agents determined both individuals were illegally present in the country.

The foreign nationals will be processed for immigration violations. The U.S. citizen adult was arrested and faces prosecution for human smuggling violations.

Locking persons in a trunk poses a significant safety threat to the individuals’ life and well-being.
