An American truck driver was nabbed by authorities at the Mexico-Arizona border attempting to smuggle nearly three dozen immigrants into the country in a massive freighter.

The U.S. Border Patrol halted the truck after a service dog directed authorities to it. A scan of the truck revealed 31 immigrants inside. Their ages ranged from 15 to 40. They were all arrested for being in the country illegally.

The driver was also arrested on suspicion of human smuggling. The driver himself was from Arizona.
