PHOENIX - Maricopa County deputies arrested two illegal immigrants Wednesday after Department of Public Safety officers pulled over a vehicle for a window tinting violation, according to the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office.
MCSO said that when DPS stopped the vehicle, about 10 Hispanic men jumped out of the vehicle and fled into the desert.
DPS officers and Sheriff's deputies worked together to find the men, but only two were found hiding under thick bushes.
MCSO said that the two men said they were from Mexico, and that they each paid $2,900 to be taken to Los Angeles.
The two men were taken into custody with state felony human smuggling charges.
