The stolen truck was found near Freer, Texas.

Agents also noted a damaged gate at a ranch nearby. They later found four people from Mexico wearing rags over their shoes.

Investigators believe the rags were worn to disguise their footprints while walking in the brush.

The stolen truck was turned over to the Duval County Sheriff's Office.
