FALFURRIAS - Dozens of illegal immigrants are rescued at the Falfurrias checkpoint. The truck driver accused of smuggling them is now behind bars.
Border patrol agents tell us the driver pulled up to the checkpoint around one yesterday morning. K9s alerted agents to something in the trailer.
Thirty illegals were found inside a sealed unventilated area of the trailer. The driver then reportedly tried to get away, but was caught north of the checkpoint.
