A few days earlier, Laredo Sector agents spotted a White Dodge pickup making a U-turn on a highway just before an immigration checkpoint. Agents eventually stopped the truck and discovered the truck was reported stolen in San Antonio.

Smugglers continue to damage the property of Texans in their attempts to smuggle migrants into the U.S. interior. Another recent tweet from Chief Hudak shows the types of damages caused when smugglers attempt to flee to avoid being arrested by the agents.
