LAREDO, Texas – U.S. Border Patrol agents from Laredo Sector working with the Webb County Constables Office (WCCO), and Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) closed a stash house and apprehended 60 undocumented individuals in central Laredo.

The incident occurred on June 6, when WCCO deputies conducted a traffic stop of a vehicle that had left a possible stash house on East Calton Road. Laredo South Station agents responded to a request for assistance from the deputies and discovered that the driver and passenger were both undocumented individuals. Acting on information from the stop, HSI and Laredo Sector agents arrived at the residence and apprehended an additional 58 undocumented individuals inside the home that were identified as being from the countries of Mexico, Hondurans, Guatemala, and El Salvador including one unaccompanied juvenile.

All were medically screened before being processed accordingly.
