Border Patrol agents have arrested a 25-year-old man for smuggling four illegal immigrants, according to a news release. 

Officials say on Wednesday agents assigned to the Wellton Station arrested a U.S. citizen after they found four undocumented aliens in his Chevrolet extended-cab pickup truck during a vehicle stop. 

Agents stopped the truck near Old Highway 80 and 20 E. 

They detected individuals hiding in the cab and then detained the 25-year-old driver and passengers for processing.
