PHOENIX -- Fourteen people are in custody after authorities discovered a drop house in west Phoenix Thursday afternoon.

A team swarmed a house near 58th Avenue and Earll Drive, north of Thomas Road, after following a suspicious vehicle there.
 
When officers arrived, many of the suspects took off. A neighbor said one of the people involved tried unsuccessfully to get into her door, but she was able to lock him out.
 
Five coyotes and nine illegal immigrants were taken into custody.
