I federali avviano un'indagine sul traffico di esseri umani dopo che la polizia ha trovato più di 90 persone a casa di Houston

Gli agenti di polizia di Houston che hanno seguito un rapporto di rapimento hanno trovato più di 90 le persone si sono bloccate in una casa a due piani in quella che le autorità hanno detto che si è rivelata una possibile operazione di contrabbando di esseri umani.

Officers were granted a search warrant to enter a home after following up on a kidnapping tip from Thursday night, Houston Police Assistant Chief Daryn Edwards said in a Friday news conference.
There were more than 90 persone all'interno.
      They were all huddled together, split between two rooms, wearing basic clothing, and were not tied up,” Ha detto Edwards, “It was a big surprise when we got in the house and saw what we saw.
        It is definitely more of a smuggling thing than a trafficking thing.
          The youngest person found in the home is in their early 20s, according to Edwards. All but five of them are men, Egli ha detto.
          Because some people had Covid-19-like symptoms, including loss of taste and smell, the group is being kept in the home and will be given rapid tests.
          Authorities brought them food and water, as they said they hadn’t eaten in a while.
          Homeland Security Investigations (HIS) will take over the investigation.
            There is no information on who owns the home, or who may have brought the group into it, according to Edwards. Neighbors didn’t report any suspicious activity and police didn’t release information on the kidnapping call that led to the discovery.
            We always ask the community if you see something say somethingwe all need to work together,” Ha detto Edwards. “This isn’t something we see often but it is disturbing,” Ha aggiunto.
