13 Illegal Immigrants Arrested After California Police Stop Phony UPS Delivery Van


NILAND, CALIFORNIA – Authorities say it was a special delivery indeed: 13 illegal immigrants stuffed in a phony UPS van.

The U.S. Border Patrol says agents in Southern California stopped the van last Friday as it tried to circumvent a highway checkpoint near Niland, an Imperial Valley community near the Mexican border.

Officials say they found 13 Mexican citizens hiding inside the back of the van, which looked like a legitimate United Parcel Service delivery vehicle.

A 21-year-old U.S. man was arrested on suspicion of smuggling.
