(Human Smuggling attempt)…A 30 year old Mexican National was arrested.
The arrest occurred earlier this week near Mount Signal Road and Highway 98. At 11:15 pm Border Patrol agents observed a Jeep Cherokee without lights traveling North on Mount Signal Road. Agents responded and caught up to the vehicle as it traveled east on Highway 98. They attempted a traffic stop, but the Jeep failed to yield. A pursuit ensued, but ended quickly after agents deployed a tire deflation device. The driver and ten occupants in the Jeep were all taken into custody. They were all transported to the Calexico Station for processing. The Jeep was seized.
