EDINBURG, Texas (AP) — Border Patrol agents have rescued 35 immigrants from a stash house in South Texas.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials on Tuesday announced a suspected smuggler from Mexico was arrested. The 34 adults and one juvenile found Monday night at a home in Edinburg were turned over to federal authorities for processing.
Agents became aware of the stash house following a vehicle stop, when the driver acknowledged being the caretaker of the home.
Officers who were granted permission to search the residence found immigrants from Mexico, El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras.
Authorities did not immediately provide additional information on the investigation.
