Tanker truck smuggling 49 people stopped by alert agent

SAN DIEGO – Forty-nine people being smuggled into the United States were found Friday morning packed inside the metal tank of a water truck a Border Patrol agent noticed near the notorious Smuggler’s Gulch.

The truck was coming out of a construction area, its driver apparently trying to blend in, when the agent saw it didn’t have a license plate, said Border Patrol Agent Jason Rodgers, a spokesman for the agency.

Rodgers said the agent followed the truck from Monument Road and Hollister Road in an under-the-speed-limit pursuit that ended not far away with the arrest of the driver and a passenger and the discovery of the people crammed inside.  More from SignOnSanDiego
