More Than 100 Found in Ariz. Drop House

More than one hundred undocumented immigrants were discovered in a Phoenix on Wednesday, according to KSAZ-TV.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents found 108 people in the 1,300 square-foot home near 91st Avenue and Encanto Boulevard that was being used as a drop house.

ICE spokesman Vincent Picard told the news station that they are attempting to indentify a number of human smugglers among the people captured.

"They seemed mostly to be good. They're thirsty, so we've got assistance from ICE and Phoenix Police Department to make sure they get some water and get fed until they get to the ICE facility," he said.

The men and women are from Mexico, El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras.

Authorities were tipped off by neighbors who reported seeing vehicles quickly entering and leaving the garage, according to the report.
