La Joya police had received a tip about a truck transporting drugs and when one officer spotted the vehicle and tried to pull it over for a traffic violation the driver sped off. The officer followed the truck into a wooded area, known as a pick up spot for illegal immigrants, and the driver and some occupants exited the truck and took off running into the brush. Four people were detained and handed over to Border Patrol agents.
