Border Patrol Halts Smuggling Attempt After Driver Flees From Checkpoint
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.
