NEAR WHETSTONE, AZ (Tucson News Now) - What might work at the drive-in won't get by Border Patrol agents.

A K9 team from the Willcox Border Patrol Station found two illegal immigrants hiding in the trunk of a car last week during an inspection at the State Route 90 checkpoint.

The vehicle was equipped with an interior emergency trunk release.  The illegal immigrants, found to be in good health, stated that they were not made aware of this feature.

The vehicle's driver, a U.S. citizen, faces federal prosecution for human smuggling.
