Edinburg, TX (NEWS CENTER 23) — The conditions were tight, as more than 90 immigrants were found crammed in stash house last night .
They were found in a rental home on Tagle street in Edinburg.
Police said some people were in there for only a few hours, while others were there for more than a week.
Luckily, they did have access to food and water, but with so many people there wasn't even enough room for everyone to sit.
"There were no arrests that were made. We did get some physical description of the alleged smugglers, the persons that were taken care of the home," said Lt. Oscar Trevino. "It was a rental, so we are looking into all that information to see if we can identify these people and take it further."
A stolen pickup truck from McAllen was also found. Edinburg police turned it over to McAllen police.
The people were all turned over to Border Patrol. Police said the group was mixed with men and women from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala. There were no children.
