LAREDO, TX. (KGNS) -A woman from Laredo is facing charges after she was found transporting undocumented immigrants just outside of San Antonio.

The arrest happened on Tuesday afternoon when Jourdanton Police initiated a traffic stop on a blue Nissan.

During the traffic stop, officers noticed that Cassandra Santa Cruz was driving without a license or insurance and that she was transporting people at the time.

Officers noticed that the individuals appeared to be dehydrated, so they provided water and waited for EMS to render aid.

Border Patrol took custody of the undocumented immigrants and Santa Cruz was charged with smuggling of persons.
