Suspicious vehicle leads cops to a undocumented worker stash house

Posted: Updated:

This morning 2 dozen undocumented workers are in custody after police stumbled upon stash house used to hide undocumented workers.

Police tells FOX26 news that they noticed a suspicious van around 1 a.m. Thursday morning and started to follow it.

The van lead them to Southwest Houston and a home on Hillcroft and Belliare.  Inside that van were 24 undocumented people including some children.

Because of the cold temperatures outside, police moved everyone inside the home.

The 24 people were all taken into custody by Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials.

ICE says 17 males, 5 females and 2 male children were removed from the House.  13 were Mexican nationals, 4 from Honduras, 2 Guatemala and 5 from El Salvador.

Neighbors who live next to the house say they are surprised it was a stash house because they never noticed any strange activity at the home.
