Two suspected smugglers arrested after agents find people in minivan on tow-truck flatbed near Jamul


Border Patrol agents arrested two suspected smugglers in a tow-truck near Jamul after agents found four undocumented migrants in a minivan the tow truck was hauling, the agency said Friday.


The discovery came about 9:30 a.m. Sunday when the flatbed stopped at a Border Patrol checkpoint on state Route 94.


Agents saw a silhouette inside the van on the flatbed, then found the four Mexican men, Agent Juan Torres said. They were “sweating profusely” inside the hot minivan, he said.


A search of the tow truck cab turned up a loaded gun inside a tool box. The two men in the tow truck — the 28-year-old driver and his 36-year old passenger — were arrested, Torres said.


The four men in the minivan were taken to an area Border Patrol station for processing.
