Border Patrol agents assigned to the Falfurrias Station Patrol Station received a call from the Brooks County Sheriff’s Office regarding a 911 call concerning an illegal alien lost in the brush.  Agents responded to the vicinity of the last known geographical coordinates and located the subject at 9:30 am.  

The subject was offered and declined medical attention.  

Earlier yesterday morning, Rio Grande City Border Patrol agents encountered more than $1,000,000.00 worth of marijuana near Los Arrieros, Texas.  The seizure occurred after agents observed an SUV being driven at a high rate of speed. In an attempt to evade apprehension, the driver veered off the road and struck a utility pole. As agents approached the SUV, the driver absconded and left behind 75 bundles of marijuana weighing 1,351 pounds. The narcotics were turned over to the Drug Enforcement Administration.  

On Monday evening, Weslaco Station Border Patrol Agents apprehended 86 illegal aliens near a canal off 2nd Street in Hidalgo, Texas.  Agents observed a large group of people walking toward them on a trail and were apprehended without incident. All the subjects admitted to being illegally present in the United States.   

Earlier Monday afternoon, Kingsville Station agents were advised by a local ranch manager that he had discovered human remains. The Kenedy County Sheriff’s Office and agents arrived to the scene, alongside Justice of Peace Pattie Fain who declared the subject deceased at 3:00 p.m.  A Honduran identification was located near the deceased subject.
