PHOENIX -- More than 40 people are being held by authorities after a drop house was uncovered in the Valley Friday morning.

According to Phoenix police Sgt. Gary Bradley, police received an anonymous call that a suspicious vehicle was dropping off a large number of people at an apartment.

Bradley said 46 males were found inside a one-bedroom apartment near 67th Avenue just north of Thomas Road.

Those inside told police that they had paid someone to bring them to the Valley and they had just arrived at the home today.

Some of the men complained of being sick so they were given masks as a precaution as were the authorities investigating the scene.
