Border Patrol agents are reporting the apprehension of 180 people found hiding in three Laredo area stash houses this month.
Chief Patrol Agent Matthew Hudak said, “The identification and interdiction of these stash houses and the apprehension of over 180 non-citizens in less than two hours highlights the challenges that our agents and law enforcement partners face on a daily basis. These numbers also illustrate the potential risk to our communities from this criminal activity and those perpetrating it. I ask that our neighbors throughout our area continue to provide tips regarding possible stash houses to us, Crime Stoppers, or other law enforcement agencies.”
