FLORESVILLE -- A suspected illegal immigrant is in custody and another is at large, following an incident this morning in the Abrego Lake residential subdivision north of here.

According to Investigator Richard Nichols of the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office, agents from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) were patrolling a stretch of U.S. 181 when they noticed a suspicious vehicle at approximately 7:45 a.m. The agents tried to conduct a traffic stop of the compact pickup truck, but the driver and passenger fled into the subdivision before parking the truck and fleeing on foot.

Deputies from the sheriff’s office responded to the scene and Deputy Manuel Perez detained one of the suspects in the Oak Fields residential subdivision. The CBP agents took the man into custody but the other suspect -- described only as a Hispanic male wearing a gray shirt and blue jeans -- was still at large as of noon.

Anyone with information about the suspect’s whereabouts is asked to call the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office at 830-393-2535.

Why bother? It's just a catch and release program under this administration anyway.
