It seems like this is happening almost every day in the Crossroads. Last night the Goliad County Sherrif's Department stopped a white car from Duval County on Highway 59, near the San Antonio River. Even though multiple people in the car fled on foot, Goliad County Sheriff's Deputies eventually captured them all.
One smuggler from Alice, TX was arrested for Smuggling of Persons. Also apprehended were two illegal aliens for evading arrest/detention, and four other illegal aliens were transported to Kingsville Border Patrol Station.
One of the illegal aliens taken to Kingsville was found to have given a false name. Once his identity was known, it was discovered that he was wanted on a warrant out of Plano, TX for Possession of a Controlled Substance. He was brought back to Goliad for the warrant, arrested for Failure To ID/Fugitive from Justice, and provided with accommodations.
