PHOENIX -- The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office said three juveniles and seven adults were detained in a human smuggling operation.

An eight-year-old, 11-year-old and 16-year-old were caught with a group of adults traveling through northern Maricopa County on Friday. The 11-year-old was unaccompanied and not related to the other adults under investigation.
