(Two women arrested for human smuggling)…One of the suspects is a reserve County Sheriff’s Deputy.

 Federal Prosecutors say three Mexican Nationals were found in the trunk of a sheriff’s patrol until driven by 23 year old Elizabeth Hernandez. Border Patrol agents Wednesday originally became suspicious of 22 year old Edna Yanie Calderon, after the agents witnessed the woman pick up three individuals at a restaurant near the border. The agents followed Calderon to the home of Hernandez, where the 3 hid in the trunk of the patrol unit. Then, in full uniform, Hernandez drove the patrol unit through the Highway 86 checkpoint, followed by Calderon in a separate vehicle. Both vehicles were pulled over by the Border Patrol agents and the women were arrested, and the 3 in the trunk were taken into custody. Each woman faces charges of Human Smuggling and could be sentenced to 10 years in federal prison and fined up to $250,000.
