Possible Texas Human Smuggling Case Uncovered


Federal agents were called to a Houston-area home after over 90 possible human smuggling victims were discovered inside. Houston Assistant Police Chief Daryn Edwards says officers were extremely surprised to find dozens of people inside a two-story house on Chessington near Sam Houston Tollway. They were originally called to the scene after getting a 911 call about a potential kidnapping last night. Investigators are trying to figure out if any potential suspects may be posing as victims. No serious injuries were reported but Edwards noted some of the people are showing coronavirus symptoms.
