Feds Bust Human Smuggler at Border With Four Chinese Migrants

While the sedan was at the booth for inspection, a roving CBP canine team's dog, which is trained to detect narcotic and humans, alerted its handlers to the presence of some suspicious cargo. The canine showed signs that there was something afoot in the trunk and after opening it, officers found three women and a man. Police later found that none of the four had the right paperwork to come into the country, the release said. When officers opened it, they found four people crammed inside.

Customs officials said the four did not have legal authorization to enter the US, and later placed an immigration hold on the group to initiate removal from the U.S.at the conclusion of criminal proceedings.
