Dumbest Crooks Caught At The Border
Speaker Box Yields More than Music: CBP Officers Find Illegal Alien Hidden Inside
San Diego — U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers working at the Otay Mesa port of entry yesterday arrested the driver of a 2007 Chevrolet Cobalt after they discovered a Mexican man hidden within a speaker box in the vehicle’s trunk.
A CBP officer encountered the driver, a 45-year-old U.S. citizen male from Covina, Calif., as he entered the border station at 10 p.m. and presented his U.S. passport to the officer. The officer escorted the vehicle and driver to the secondary lot for a more in-depth investigation.
During the secondary inspection officers found a 37-year-old illegal alien secreted in a large speaker box in the trunk of the vehicle. The alien, who does not possess documents to enter the country, was held as a material witness in the prosecution case; he was paroled into United States into the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
