Fake IID Truck Used By Smuggler

14 illegal immigrants were found in a fake IID pick up truck Monday morning.

U.S. Border Patrol agents stopped a Ford F-150 disguised as an Imperial Irrigation District service vehicle when agents noticed discrepancies with the markings of the truck. After stopping the truck on northbound Highway 111 , agents confirmed that was not a legitimate IID truck and the driver was not an IID employee. Agents screened the truck and found 14 individuals hiding under a tarp in the bed of the truck and in the rear passenger cabin. The suspected illegal immigrants were taken to the Calexico Border Patrol Station for processing. The driver , a 23-year old man , a U.S. citizen , was placed under arrest.
