PHOENIX (AP) -

Maricopa County sheriff's deputies say they have arrested 10 people, including three juveniles, who are believed to be part of a human smuggling operation.

The 10 people were traveling in a car Friday night in northern Maricopa County when the vehicle was stopped, MCSO said. Six of the adults were booked into the Fourth Avenue jail.

The three juveniles along with one adult were turned over to immigration agents.

The juveniles ranged in age from 8 to 16, sheriff's deputies said.

Investigators said all 10 claimed to be Mexican nationals. They had paid up to $4,000 to be smuggled into the U.S. Their destinations were New York and Georgia.
