McAllen (KFXV) — “You got me.” “I had to get caught sometime.” that’s what one blurted out to Border Patrol agents arrested him for human trafficking.
According to authorities, on Tuesday of last week, agents conducted a traffic stop after surveillance cameras caught several subjects crossing the Rio Grande in a raft into the United States, and jump into a vehicle. The driver of the vehicle, identified as Diego Armando Perez and American citizen, had six undocumented people in the backseat of his pick-up truck “stacked on top of each other.” all of the occupants of the vehicle were placed under arrest.
