Laramie, Wy – Authorities apprehended 16 illegal aliens
from Mexico this week during a traffic stop on Interstate 80 in southeastern Wyoming.
The arrests were made Tuesday after a state trooper stopped a van for speeding about 15 miles east of Cheyenne.
The U-S Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency says smuggling charges were being pursued against two people who took turns driving the van, which was headed to Florida.
Twelve of the 14 passengers were being sent back to Mexico, while two remained behind as witnesses.
