FALFURRIAS, Texas – U.S. Border Patrol agents located four illegal aliens abandoned in the vast ranch lands of Brooks County.
On Tuesday, Falfurrias agents patrolling near Highway 755 encountered a woman who claimed was part of a group left behind by smugglers. As agents provided the woman with basic medical care, additional agents backtracked the woman’s path, and hours later, located three additional subjects. Agents provided the group with basic medical attention and transported them to the Falfurrias station for further evaluation.
The Border Patrol is processing all subjects accordingly.
The public is encouraged to take a stand against crime in their communities and to help save lives by reporting suspicious activity at 800-863-9382.
