Laredo Sector Border Patrol agents, with the assistance of Air and Marine Operations – Laredo Air Branch and Webb County Constable Precinct 2 deputies, discovered a stash house and apprehended multiple undocumented individuals several blocks away from Zachary Elementary School.
The incident occurred on Dec. 15, when law enforcement officers responded to suspicious activity at a residence in south Laredo. Once law enforcement officers arrived at the residence, they discovered 13 undocumented individuals that were temporarily housed inside. All were from the countries of Honduras and Mexico, including one unaccompanied child. 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.
