A total of 30 illegal immigrants were found during a vehicle stop in Douglas, Arizona on August 3, 2020. Border Patrol agents responded to a concerned citizen’s report of a suspicious truck near the international boundary.
Agents located the Ford F-250 pickup truck on a dirt road. As they attempted a vehicle immigration stop, the driver abandoned the truck in the driveway of a random house and fled on foot into nearby neighborhoods.
Agents discovered 30 Mexican nationals, including women and children, packed in the vehicle. All 30 were found to be illegally present in the United States and consequently expelled to Mexico via Title 42 authority.
After an exhaustive search, agents were unable to locate the driver of the pickup truck. Records checks revealed the truck was reported stolen out of the Phoenix metropolitan area.
