Laredo Sector Border Patrol agents arrested six illegal aliens during a smuggling attempt
The incident occurred just after 5:30 p.m. on October 15, when agents attempted to conduct a traffic stop on a vehicle in El Cenizo, Texas. As an agent activated the emergency equipment on his vehicle, the subject vehicle pulled to the side of the road, and several subjects ran from the vehicle, including the driver. The vehicle also damaged a gate at a local residence before coming to a complete stop.
Agents detained four subjects who had remained in the vehicle, and a search of the area resulted in the apprehension of two additional subjects. Immigration inspections of the subjects determined they were all illegally present in the United States.
All six subject were transported for processing, and the vehicle was seized by the Laredo Sector Border Patrol.
