SAN DIEGO – Two men were arrested Friday after authorities found 12 illegal immigrants inside a tractor-trailer truck at a checkpoint in Jamul.

Agents spotted the truck, which was following a Chevy Malibu, after being told several people were seen boarding it in Tecate, said Mark Endicott, a Border Patrol spokesman.

Agents searched the truck and discovered ten men, one woman and a 17-year-old girl inside, Endicott said.

The drivers of the truck was arrested, along with the Malibu’s driver, who agents say was acting as a look out. Both are U.S. citizens and the vehicles were seized, Endicott said.

All of the people in the tractor-trailer were Mexican nationals and will be processed for deportation.

Despite the recent high temperatures, none of them suffered any heat-related injuries, Endicott said. From SignOnSanDiego
