YUMA - U.S. Border Patrol agents discovered 65 illegal immigrants hiding in a grain silo near Yuma Thursday morning.

The unusual stash house was found after a citizen reported suspicious activity, the Agent Richard Hays said. All the migrants were in good condition and were taken to the Border Patrol's Yuma Station for processing.

The silo was in a field north of Highway 95 and east of Yuma. Yuma Sector agents have detained more than 80,000 illegal immigrants since Oct. 1.
