LAREDO, Texas – Laredo Sector Border Patrol agents discovered a stash house and apprehended over 60 undocumented individuals in El Cenizo, Texas.

The incident occurred on Dec. 8., when agents responded to suspicious activity at a residence on Holguin Street after a vehicle accident.  Agents discovered over 60 undocumented individuals inside the residence.  They were identified as being from the countries of Guatemala and Mexico.  All were medically screened before being processed accordingly.

Stash houses are a threat to national security and a threat to the people in our communities not only due to the criminal activity they are linked to but also because of the lack of sanitary conditions which can foster a breeding ground for illnesses or other communicable diseases.

Help us take a stand against these criminal organizations and their dangerous acts by reporting suspicious activity in our neighborhoods to the Laredo Sector Border Patrol toll free at 1-800-343-1994.
