Seventeen undocumented immigrants were discovered on Sunday (Aug. 13) locked inside a tractor-trailer parked at a truck stop in Edinburg, Texas, according to Edinburg Police Chief David White. KRGV reports 17 people were inside the trailer at the Flying J in Edinburg.

A family member of one of the people inside the trailer called the police to report that a relative was trapped inside a trailer and it began to get too hot.

The immigrants originated from a range of countries, including Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras and Romania, White said.

The find comes about a month after three dozen people were found in a tractor-trailer in San Antonio at a Walmart parking lot.
