Border Patrol agents in Texas find six people stuffed inside cabinets

Six people were rescued in Texas after Border Patrol agents discovered they were being smuggled in cabinets. 

Border Patrol agents stopped the truck transporting the cabinets on June 4th at a checkpoint in Laredo. 

The cabinets were closed tightly with ratchet straps, and could only be opened from the outside. 

A K-9 was able to sniff out the people, who were all Mexican citizens. The extreme weather conditions, caused them to suffer from lack of air. 

Authorities arrested the female driver, who is a United States citizen. She has been turned over to US Department of Homeland Security for prosecution.
