WATCH: Smugglers Caught Transporting Illegals Inside Tool Boxes

A pair of suspected human smugglers were arrested in Texas after they were caught transporting more than a dozen illegal aliens, including some who were hiding inside tool boxes, according to authorities.

The bust unfolded on Tuesday in Webb County near the Mexican border.

Texas Department of Public Safety (TxDPS) troopers had just pulled over two suspicious trucks on Interstate 35 when one of the drivers bailed out and attempted to escape on foot.

The fleeing suspect was quickly apprehended and taken into custody.

He was identified Daniel Pena, a resident of Zapata, TX.

The other driver was identified as Mario R. Gutierrez Zambrano, an illegal alien from Mexico.

While searching the vehicles, troopers found three males hiding inside a large tool box on the back of one truck and at least one male concealed within another tool box mounted onto the other vehicle.

Many more illegals were discovered inside the cab of the pickup truck.

In total, 15 illegal alien passengers were rounded up and referred to U.S. Border Patrol.

Both drivers were arrested by TxDPS and charged with human smuggling.
