NEW YORK (FOX5NY) - A man was arrested at a California border crossing for trying to smuggle four Chinese nationals into the U.S.
Authorities said the man entered the San Ysidro border crossing in a 2014 Chrysler. U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers inspected his car and discovered the three females and one male inside of the trunk.
It's believed they were part of a human-smuggling operation. Officials have confirmed the group has no legal ability to enter the United States.
The 24-year-old driver was arrested and is expected to face federal charges. His name was not immediately released.
The fate of the four people in the trunk remained unclear.
