EL PASO, Texas (KVIA) -- 28 undocumented migrants were removed from an illegal stash house at Ascarate and Sambrano Tuesday morning, according to the Texas Department of Public Safety.

Soon after, Texas DPS's Criminal Investigations Division arrived on the scene. They said they encountered a man who attempted to escape after talking with investigators. The man was detained by CID.

Investigators found padlocks on all exits of the stash house intended to keep anyone from leaving. CID breached the building and recovered the individuals inside.

The 28 undocumented migrants were turned over to Border Patrol.
