More than a dozen undocumented immigrants were taken into custody following four failed human smuggling operations.

The latest one was on Thursday when a U.S. Border Patrol Agent working in Mission spotted a group of people jump into the bed of a Ford F-150 pickup truck.

As agents approached them, the driver and seven suspects fled to nearby brush but were quickly caught.
