Traffic Stop Leads to Illegal Immigrant Drop House
PHOENIX (AP) -- Phoenix police say a traffic stop has led to a drop house where 27 suspected illegal immigrants were staying.
Sgt. Steve Martos says officers who stopped a vehicle for a minor traffic infraction at about 11 a.m. Saturday questioned the people inside, who told them they had just arrived from Mexico and that other illegal immigrants were in a nearby house.
Officers who went to the home near 63rd Avenue and Buckeye Road found four women, one child and 22 men inside the house.
