Arizona police and immigration officials believe they have netted a record number of illegal immigrants in a Phoenix drop house. Neighbors grew suspicious of the home at 91st and Encanto Boulevard with many vehicles coming and leaving the 1,300 square foot, four-bedroom home.
Upon investigation officials found 108 illegal aliens, including 15 women and teenagers, from Mexico, El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala. They were packed into every one of the four bedrooms and the garage. This is one of the largest drop houses seen in the area in five years.
The immigrants were searched for weapons and drugs and were then to be processed by immigration and customs officials before the deportation process begins.
