FAIRVIEW -- Deputies from the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office continue their search for a group of suspected illegal immigrants who fled on foot Feb. 15 in the area of C.R. 111 between F.M. 2505 and S.H. 97 southwest of here.
Wilson County Sheriff Joe D. Tackitt Jr. said at approximately 8 a.m., deputies from the Atascosa County Sheriff’s Office were in pursuit of a stolen Ford F-350 pickup truck, which crossed into Wilson County. The vehicle was driven into the pasture on C.R. 111 where as many as nine occupants -- believed to be from Mexico -- fled from the vehicle. Tackitt said three of the suspects were apprehended and turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials.
The remaining six still are at large as deputies and the landowner continue their search. Tackitt said the suspects are not considered armed or dangerous, and likely will emerge shortly from the brush in search of food and water.
Anyone with information about the whereabouts of the remaining suspects is asked to call the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office at 830-393-2535.
