This past Friday afternoon, El Centro Sector CBP U.S. Border Patrol agents arrested a 21-year-old male attempting to smuggle illegal aliens using a cloned United Parcel Service (UPS) van.

The incident occurred at approximately 11:30 a.m., after Border Patrol agents observed a UPS van attempting to circumvent the Highway 111 Checkpoint. Agents conducted a vehicle stop and discovered 13 passengers hiding inside the back of the van. After further investigation, agents determined that the van was not a legitimate UPS van.

The driver was identified as a United States citizen. The 13 passengers were identified as Mexican citizens without legal immigration documents. The driver and illegal aliens were arrested and the cloned UPS van was seized.
