A well-organized, heavily financed smuggling ring that transported Chinese to Southern California by ship was dismantled after federal authorities raided a Garden Grove house and found 118 illegal immigrants inside, officials said Wednesday. The Chinese had arrived on a 200-foot fishing trawler 320 miles off the California coast and were brought into San Pedro on board an excursion vessel that was playing a role in the five-week undercover operation mounted by the U.S.

Two men suspected of smuggling illegal immigrants led Border Patrol agents on a wild chase Thursday that began at the INS Interstate 5 checkpoint in San Onofre and ended 34 miles later on an Irvine street, where the suspects crashed their station wagon, authorities said. Border Patrol agents arrested the two suspects and three others after a 25-minute pursuit, which took place in light, post rush-hour traffic.

A van apparently smuggling illegal immigrants from Mexico bolted the Border Patrol checkpoint near San Clemente Sunday and led lawmen on a 40-minute chase through Orange County, sometimes against oncoming freeway traffic. The fleeing driver, identified only as a Mexican citizen, drove into oncoming lanes of the San Diego Freeway in Irvine and the Costa Mesa Freeway in Tustin but was stopped on the Santa Ana Freeway here before anyone was hurt, police said.
