U.S. Border Patrol agents stop a human smuggling attempt after the driver refused to stop for inspection.
Early this morning, Border Patrol agents assigned to the Falfurrias Checkpoint referred a Buick Le Sabre for a secondary inspection after a Border Patrol K-9 alerted to the vehicle.
As agents directed the driver to the inspection area, the driver refused to comply and accelerated at a high rate of speed away from the checkpoint.
Agents pursued the fleeing vehicle, conducted a traffic stop along Highway 281, and arrested both the driver and front passenger.
A search of the vehicle resulted in the discovery of two illegal aliens concealed inside.
Agents referred this case for prosecution.
