10 illegal immigrants arrested in northern Arizona

Posted: Updated:

CAMP VERDE, Ariz. (AP) - Northern Arizona authorities say they've arrested 10 illegal immigrants after a traffic stop in Camp Verde.

Yavapai County Sheriff's officials say the driver told them he was taking his nine passengers to New Mexico and was being paid to do it.

A deputy stopped the van for speeding on Interstate 17 about 4 a.m. Tuesday and says the driver only had a Mexican identification card.

Five men and three women were in the van, which was headed to Santa Fe. Another man was later found hiding under a large floor mat in the van.

Authorities say 3 of the 10 are juveniles.

None of their names have been released, but authorities say all of them are being held at the Camp Verde Detention Center pending release to federal immigration officials.
