Texas Sheriff’s Office Unveils ‘Big Money’ Bust: Human Smuggling Ring Cracked!

In a significant crackdown on organized crime, Texas law enforcement agencies have thwarted a large-scale human smuggling operation, resulting in the arrest of seven suspects. The Bexar County Sheriff’s Office, in collaboration with other agencies, intercepted a long gooseneck trailer destined for a rural residence outside San Antonio.

Sheriff Javier Salazar revealed the harrowing discovery made within the trailer—a concealed compartment housing 26 victims. The trailer, originating from the Laredo area, served as a vessel for the illicit transportation of migrants seeking entry into the United States.

The suspects, including Abeldaro Herrera, Rafael Mendoza, and Cristobal Eduardo Deleon, face multiple charges related to human smuggling and organized criminal activity. Sheriff Salazar underscored the gravity of the situation, describing the operation as “big money” and “clearly cartel-related.”
