Smugglers cut a massive hole in a section of U.S.-Mexico border wall and then drove a truck through it Wednesday, federal agents said after tracking down and arresting all 16 people who had entered in the truck.

The audacious plan culminated at around 3:45 p.m. Wednesday when the smugglers cut the truck-sized hole in an old section of the border wall near Campo, Calif., about 50 miles east of San Diego, and drove a white Dodge utility truck across the border, according to a report from the Sacramento Bee.

The article goes on to state the following:

It was all downhill from there, however. About 15 minutes later, a Customs and Border Patrol agent spotted a man near the truck attempting to use bolt cutters on a private fence. The group then sped off in the truck, the Bee reported.

According to the report, Border agents ultimately captured all 16 individuals involved. The Sacramento Bee further wrote:

“All 16 admitted to entering the U.S. illegally and were transported to a nearby Border Patrol station for processing,” border agents said, adding that nine were Mexican men ages 15 to 53, five were Mexican women ages 18 to 40 and two were Guatemalan — a 28-year-old man and a 29-year-old woman.

The San Diego Border Patrol tweeted the following photos of the incident:
