PHOENIX -- Thanks to information gleaned while working another case, deputies with the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office took 19 illegal immigrants into custody at a home used for human smuggling.
It happened at about 6:30 Tuesday morning at 40th Avenue and Van Buren Street.
According to MCSO spokesman Jeff Sprong, all but one of the 19 were from Mexico. The remaining detainee told deputies he is from Costa Rica.
Sprong said the suspects were headed for California, North Carolina, Illinois, Ohio, New York, Pennsylvania, Delaware, South Carolina, and Colorado.
Each one reportedly had paid between $1,000 and $3,500 to be smuggled into the U.S.
Sprong did not say anything else about the investigation that led them to this particular home, but there have been several arrests in recent days. It's not clear if they are connected.
"Thirty-six illegal aliens have been arrested by the Sheriffs Office over the past several days on human smuggling charges and booked into county jail on class 4 felony charges. Clearly this problem isnt going away," Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio said in a news release.
