Border Patrol Agents Apprehend Subjects in Vehicle Pursuit
LAREDO, Texas – Laredo Sector Border Patrol agents apprehended several subjects following a vehicle pursuit.
The incident occurred on April 19, at around 8:00 p.m. CST, when agents encountered a suspicious vehicle traveling on Mines Road. The agents began to follow the vehicle, which eventually led the vehicle to speed up in an attempt to abscond from agents. The vehicle eventually came to a stop and six subjects exited and fled on foot. Agents then began searching for their location.
With the assistance of CBP Air and Marine Operations (AMO), the agents were able to locate and apprehend three subjects, which were transported to the station for processing. One of the illegal aliens was treated by a Border Patrol Emergency Medical Technician and was transported to a local hospital for further evaluation. Record checks revealed the subjects were from Mexico.
