Border Patrol agents arrested two people found hiding in the windjammer of a semi-truck on Tuesday.

It happened at a checkpoint along Highway 83 near Laredo when the driver of the tractor-trailer was referred to secondary inspection. A Border Patrol canine alerted to the presence of something suspicious within the vehicle, according to a news release.

Further inspection led agents to find two people hiding in the truck's windjammer. The two men, from Ecuador and the Dominican Republic, appeared in good health.

The driver, a United States citizen, was arrested.
