Smuggling attempt turns fatal

(Two men die in a smuggling attempt)…It happened this week at the San Ysidro Port.

Customs and Border Protection Officers became suspicious of an orange 2012 Dodge Challenger being driven by a 41 year old US Citizen. The vehicle was referred to the secondary inspection area. Officers found two men inside the trunk of the vehicle. The 28 and 20-year-old men appeared to be unconscious. The CBP called 911. San Diego Fire-rescue responded. One of the men was pronounced dead at the scene. The other was transported to a hospital where he was pronounced dead. Both men were Mexican citizens. The driver was arrested, but it is not known what charges have been filed against him.
