Phony Border Patrol vehicle stopped in Arizona, foiling human smuggling attempt, US authorities say

Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and Tucson-area Border Patrol agents took the driver and 10 migrants into custody, according to a tweet from John Modlin, interim chief patrol agent of the Border Patrol’s Tucson Sector.

Modlin shared a photo of the phony vehicle, which appeared strikingly similar to an actual Border Patrol vehicle.

“This is not a Border Patrol vehicle,” Modlin wrote.
