EL PASO, Texas (KVIA) -- Sunland Park Police discovered five migrants and four children living in a stash house.

The pictures posted by Chief Good show various rooms of the stash house. Chief Good says the smugglers kept the migrants in "deplorable conditions."

Chief Good did not elaborate on what happened to the migrants found inside the stash houses, or where the girl who called 911 is now.
