EDINBURG - Border Patrol and Edinburg police made a major stash house bust this morning. More than 100 illegal immigrants were found. We're told many are from Central America. Some may be from as far as South America.

The bust happened on a dirt road east of Raul Longoria. It extends to University Drive. There are at least five homes sitting side by side. The brush and trees easily hid the homes.

A helicopter was at the scene, searching for any illegal immigrants who may have run into the brush. There's no word yet on how officers found the homes.

Authorities are now working to get more transport vehicles to relocate the people taken into custody.
