The Border Patrol says it stopped a pickup truck on Old Highway 80 and questioned the driver and his passenger.  Their nervous behavior prompted agents to search the truck.  The agents found four suspected illegal immigrants hiding in a special compartment in the pickup truck's bed.

Everyone was taken into custody.
