Earlier this week, border patrol agents discovered a Mexican woman attempting to enter the country illegally by hiding in the paneling of a 1993 Dodge Caravan.
At the San Ysidro port of entry on the California-Mexico border, a 43-year-old male U.S. citizen from Vista California was stopped during a routine vehicle inspection. Border patrol agents "noticed that the driver's side quarter panel felt and sounded unusual when tapped," according to Fox 5 San Diego.
Officers then referred the car and driver to an inspection area where the panel was removed and the woman was discovered.
According to a report by MyFoxPhoenix.com, the driver of the van will face criminal charges, and the woman will be held in the U.S. to serve as a material witness to the incident before she is deported to Mexico.
But that wasn't the only discovery this weekend on the California border.
According to Fox 5 San Diego, over the same weekend, more than "1,100 pounds of marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamine, and heroin valued at $5.9 million was intercepted by U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers" and 12 busts were made for human smuggling on the California border.
CORRECTION: A previous version of this story speculated as to the Mexican woman's intentions in coming to the U.S., and this language has been removed.
