EDINBURG, Texas (AP) — Investigators say more than three dozen immigrants have been rescued from a South Texas stash house a few miles from the Mexican border.

A Border Patrol statement Tuesday says a U.S. citizen and a Mexican national were arrested in the human smuggling investigation.

Authorities say a traffic stop led to discovery of the stash house in Edinburg where 37 people were located Monday afternoon. Border Patrol officials say the immigrants included three children from Mexico and Honduras.

All of the individuals were transported to the McAllen Border Patrol station for processing. Officials didn't immediately provide information on charges against the two suspects or further details on the immigrants.
