The Las Cruces Sun-News reported Wednesday that 33-year-old Evelyn Limas of Casa Grande has been charged with felony smuggling following the stop last week near the New Mexico border town of Columbus.

Limas' court-appointed lawyer did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the allegations.

Court documents say the agent stopped the van after it was observed picking up a group of people who had crossed the border.

According to the documents, Limas told the agent that she was an Uber driver and was taking the group to Ruidoso.

The 10 passengers were arrested and taken to the Deming Border Patrol Station.
