Police chase leads to “stash house” harboring illegal aliens

Police chase leads to

A chase that ended in a bailout in Pharr eventually led authorities to a stash house in Alamo.

Border Patrol first alerted Hidalgo County precinct 1 deputy constables to a possible stash house off south Val Verde Road in Alamo. The deputies followed vehicle that was leaving the house and the chase ensued.

The driver of the Ford F-150 exited Interstate 2 in Pharr.

“On Sugar Road, (he) exited still refusing to stop and continuing into a residential area. That’s when the vehicle came to a stop and about 10 subjects, including the driver, bailed out,” Deputy Constable Diomar Galvan said.

A deputy ran to stop the truck after the driver bailout out while it was still in motion.

Deputy constables rounded up eight of the 10 people. The driver got away.

Deputies used information gathered after the chase to identify the stash house. Authorities pulled 28 illegal immigrants from the house on South Val Verde Road in Alamo.

The 24 men and four women were loaded into Border Patrol vans. The immigrants are from El Salvador, Honduras, Guatemala and Mexico.

Galvan said three immigrants were injured when they jumped over a fence. They tried to escape again when they were being transported to the hospital.

“We did receive a call that they had tried to bail out of the ambulance at the hospital,” Galvan said.

Galvan said it isn’t clear if the men escaped.
