A surprising discovery in a disabled dump truck in Laredo last week.

Authorities found 36 migrants trapped in a hidden compartment.

Officers had dispatched a wrecker to tow it away to an impound lot.

Authorities later searched the vehicle after receiving an anonymous tip.

Inside, they found the migrants hidden by a piece of plywood that was covered in sand, gravel, and dirt.

They remain in custody.
