NOGALES, Ariz. (AP) - Forty-two immigrants who aren’t authorized to be in the country were discovered inside a tractor-trailer truck in southern Arizona.

The immigrants and a U.S. citizen who was driving the truck were taken into custody Monday.

Federal authorities say they received a tip that people were hiding in brush north of Nogales, Arizona.

Aircraft was called into to help track the group and watched the immigrants as they climbed onto the truck.

The bust was made after the Arizona Department of Public Safety later stopped the truck on Interstate 19 near Tubac.
