Willcox break-in leads to arrest of 14 immigrants

WILLCOX, Ariz. -- Cochise County sheriff's deputies say 14 men believed to be in the country illegally were arrested after three of them were suspected of breaking into a home.

Deputies were called to a home in a farming community south of Willcox early Friday after the homeowner had reported a break-in.

The homeowner told deputies noises woke him up and he found a man standing in front of his refrigerator with the door open. The man fled along with another man who was outside.

Border Patrol agents searched the area and found 14 men hiding on a hill near the home.

After interviewing them, deputies learned three of them went to the home to get food and water.

The three are now facing burglary charges. The remaining 11 have been turned over to immigration authorities.
