CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS (KRIS) -- More than twenty suspected illegal immigrants were detained overnight from a stash house.

It happened on Lawton Street, just off of Greenwood.

When police knocked on the door, they didn't know what to expect, they say they were shocked to find twenty-one undocumented immigrants.

Police say it all started when they made two separate traffic stops yesterday.

From those stops, they discovered three undocumented immigrants who all said they lived here, at this home on Lawton Street.

CCPD then contacted Homeland Security and they teamed up for the bust last night.

Where they searched a couple different homes, including those traffic stops, 21 people were detained.

They are all being taken to the Border Patrol station.

The Gang Lieutenant told us he can't remember finding this many undocumented immigrants, all in one place, in a really long time.
