ICE served a search warrant for human smuggling at a two-story house near 103rd Street and Normandie Avenue at about 6:30 a.m. and took 61 people into custody, including six juveniles, three teenagers and three toddlers.The allegedly undocumented immigrants were from four different countries: El Salvador, Guatemala, Nicaragua and Ecuador.

Agents described the interior of the house as appalling, with trash and rotting food two to three feet high in every room.

Suspects initially told agents that they have been there since Friday.

ICE said there have been no drop houses in L.A. for some time.
