GAINESVILLE, TX - Five people discovered in rail cars in Gainesville are under arrest. Authorities say the people were hiding on a Burlington Northern Santa Fe train on Saturday.

The people are 18 year old Rachel Oaks; 25 year old Aaron Folkertsma; 20 year old Robert Stack; 25 year old Nicholas Cromwell; and 21 year old Michael Greenleaf.

Authorities say the stow-aways are homeless people from Texas, Michigan and Florida. Police are unsure where the people were planning on going.

All five are being held in the Cooke County jail on $15,000 bond for interfering with railroad property.

Two suspects also face charges of evading arrest.
