A human smuggling attempt is brought to a halt after a driver refused to stop for inspection at the Falfurrias checkpoint.

Friday morning, agents sent a car for secondary inspection after a K-9 alerted them to the vehicle.

When directed towards the inspection area, the driver took off at a high rate of speed.

Agents chased the vehicle and eventually arrested the driver and passenger.

During a search, two people in the U.S. illegally were found hidden inside the car.

The case is now being referred for prosecution.
