A traffic stop Friday morning led to the detention of three illegal immigrants.
About 8 a.m., Victoria police stopped a truck at 9700 U.S. Highway 59 on suspicion of an equipment violation.
After some questioning, it was determined three passengers in the truck were not U.S. citizens, said Lt. Mike Hernandez, VPD spokesman.
Detained were Junior Cungia, 26; Qasinero Rodriguez, 41; and Javier Muniz, 55.
The men were taken into custody and detained at the Victoria County Jail.
Immigration and Custom Enforcement was notified, Hernandez said.
