Police, Border Patrol conduct dusk raid
FLORESVILLE -- Two are in custody after being arrested on Fifth Street here April 17 just before 8 p.m. Agents from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and officers from the Floresville Police Department conducted the raid.
An illegal immigrant from Guatemala was taken into custody by CBP agents while a man identified as Carlos Hernan Barrera Alvarado was arrested on a warrant from the Floresville Police Department. According to Sgt. Devin Keen of the Floresville Police Department, Alvarado is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon -- a motor vehicle -- following a recent incident outside Big Dan's bar on C Street. Alvarado allegedly tried to hit someone with his car after the two had been involved in a fight.
Keen said the joint cooperation between police and CBP occurred because officials received information that as many as 20 illegal immigrants from various Latin American countries were being harbored in two adjacent homes across the street from the Floresville Head Start Center. The remaining individuals are believed to have fled before officials arrived.
