      Bailout ends in front of Action 4 News studios, immigrants detained

      A triple agency manhunt was underway after a bailout ended right outside the Action 4 studio in Harlingen.

      Border Patrol agents joined officers from La Feria and Harlingen to capture undocumented immigrants who fled following a traffic stop.

      Five immigrants were quickly arrested, and others ran into a nearby field behind the station.

      Those detained said they were from El Salvador and Guatamala.

      The incident happened around 8:45 p.m., and the Harlingen Police Department assisted the La Feria Police Department.

      Authorities searched the field for others who fled the scene.
