A routine traffic stop led officers to find dozens of immigrants
without documentation crammed inside an 18-wheeler, Texas police say.
The truck was pulled over at around 10 p.m. on Tuesday in Raymondville, Texas, while driving down Highway 77,
police told Fox29. An officer opened the back of the truck — and
allegedly discovered a mass of people huddled together inside.
There were 88 immigrants inside,
to be exact, according to police, who told Fox29 that some attempted to
flee from officers by crawling through a hole on the trailer's roof.
Police say that all of the people in the truck were arrested.
