More than 100 illegal immigrants – including 11 minors – were detained in Texas late last week after agents at the border discovered them hiding inside a locked semi-trailer.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection revealed Wednesday that agents at a checkpoint in Laredo were investigating a black semi-truck with a white trailer trying to enter the U.S. just after midnight on May 10 when they made the discovery.

While interviewing the driver, who claimed to have no identification, a K9 alerted agents that concealed humans or narcotics were inside the trailer.

The semi-trailer was ordered to the secondary inspection area where the driver hurriedly escaped through the passenger side door and ran to an adjacent field.

Inside the trailer, agents found a total of 120 people – 11 juveniles and 109 adults from El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Ecuador, and Mexico.

CBP said the individuals appeared in good health and were evaluated by medical personnel.

“Fortunately for all individuals found inside the trailer, the weather was unseasonably cool and conditions inside the trailer were bearable,” CBP said in a statement. “Nonetheless, it would have been impossible for the people to escape the trailer as it could not be opened from the inside.”
