WESTMORELAND, Calif. – A group of 30 undocumented immigrants were found inside the trailer of a semi-truck.

The group of undocumented immigrants were found locked inside the refrigerated trailer of the truck, according to agents.
The 60-year-old truck driver, a U.S. citizen, is in custody pending prosecution for human smuggling.
