HOUSTON (KPRC) - Video obtained NBC affilate KPRC shows two teenagers smuggling drugs and people into Texas, investigators say.
The video was shot by a 16-year-old boy. Investigators in Brooks County said they discovered the video on the teen's iPhone after he and 14 other illegal immigrants were arrested following a high speed chase.
The men in the video are smiling and heard listening to upbeat music as they navigate several back roads and highways in south Texas.
"It's contemptible," said Jackson County Sheriff AJ Louderback after viewing the video. "It's just the attitude."
One clip recorded by the teenager shows a group of people trudging through dense underbrush after crossing the border into Texas. Another clip shows the same teenager mugging for camera as at least seven people are crammed into the back of a pick-up truck.
