LA Man Arrested for Paint Bucket Illegal Immigrant Smuggle
A border patrol officer used a human and narcotic sniffing dog to help uncover an illegal immigrant being smuggled into the country in a pickup truck at San Ysidro early yesterday morning, according to KTLA.
In the truck bed, beneath a bunch of paint buckets a 54-year-old male Mexican citizen was hiding. "The officer removed tools from one of the buckets and saw a face staring back at him, officials said." There were holes cut in the buckets to help hide the man during the crossing.
The driver of the truck, a 31-year-old man from Los Angeles, "was arrested and will face federal felony smuggling charges."
