Border Patrol agents arrested eight people connected to two separate human smuggling attempts, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
The first incident happened at a checkpoint point on Highway 86 near Three Points, on Saturday.
Agents referred the driver, a U.S. citizen, of 2006 Nissan Maxima to secondary inspection, according to a news release.
That’s where agents said a canine alerted them to two Guatemalan men hidden in the vehicle’s trunk.
The second incident happened at a checkpoint on Highway 90 near Huachuca City, on Sunday.
Two U.S. citizens were arrested after agents found three Mexican nationals in the trunk of a Ford Taurus, according to CBP.
The Americans were arrested and their vehicles were seized. The undocumented immigrants are being processed for immigration violations.
