    Agents Intercept Tractor Trailer Smuggling Scheme




    Release Date: October 25, 2021



    For More Information:

    Greg L. Davis, Big Bend Sector Public Affairs Officer, 202-839-1817, Gregory.L.Davis@cbp.dhs.gov


    SIERRA BLANCA, Texas – United States Border Patrol Canine Detection teams conducting traffic operations at the Interstate 10 Immigration Checkpoint interdicted a tractor-trailer smuggling scheme.
    On October 23, 2021, Border Patrol Canine Detection teams working the Sierra Blanca Checkpoint on IH-10 encountered a tractor trailer in the primary inspection lane. A K-9 alerted to the trailer; agents then directed the vehicle to the secondary inspection lane.

    In the secondary inspection area, agents opened the trailer doors to discover a total of 31 undocumented migrants, from Guatemala and Mexico, were concealed among crushed aluminum.


    “The vigilance and teamwork displayed by agents and their K-9 partners saved multiple individuals from a potentially dangerous situation.” Big Bend Sector Chief Patrol Agent Sean L. McGoffin stated.

    “Transnational criminal organizations continue to expose undocumented migrants to unsafe conditions with little to no regard for their well-being.”

    The driver and three occupants from the tractor trailer, were turned over to Hudspeth County Sheriff’s Office for prosecution.

    All undocumented migrants were medically evaluated and processed accordingly.

    As the tractor-trailer approached the primary inspection lane on October 23, a K-9 alerted to the possible presence of drug or human cargo in the trailer. The agents referred the driver to a secondary inspection area, according to a statement from Big Bend Sector Border Patrol officials.

    During the secondary inspection, the agents opened the rear of the trailer to conduct a physical search. After opening the doors, agents found 31 migrants hiding inside a load of crushed aluminum. The agents removed the migrants from the trailer and conducted an immigration interview.

    Officials report the agents identified the migrants as citizens of Guatemala and Mexico.

    Agents turned three of the trailer’s occupants and the truck driver over to the Hudspeth County Sheriff’s Office for prosecution. The remainder of the migrants were medically cleared and processed under CBP guidelines.

    “The vigilance and teamwork displayed by agents and their K-9 partners saved multiple individuals from a potentially dangerous situation.” Big Bend Sector Chief Patrol Agent Sean L. McGoffin said in a written statement. “Transnational criminal organizations continue to expose undocumented migrants to unsafe conditions with little to no regard for their well-being.”
