On December 4, 2020 17 undocumented immigrants were arrested after being found in a illegal immigration stash house.

Acting on information received of suspicious activity at a residence, U.S. Border Patrol and Homeland Security Investigations agents shut down a stash house in south Laredo, Texas.

The incident occurred during the early evening when the combined law enforcement agencies conducted a search of a residence. The search led to the discovery of 17 individuals inside the home who were illegally in the United States from the country of Mexico. 

They were taken into custody by U.S. Border Patrol pending further investigation.
