More than 100 people found in suspected stash house in SE Houston
Police don't know how long the occupants had been in the house. One woman said she had been there 15 days. Others said they had been there two to four days.
They remained in the front yard until about 3 p.m. Wednesday, when Homeland Security agents began loading them onto two buses for transport to a contract detention center on Greens Road, said Greg Palmore, spokesman for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
The discovery of 109 people made this raid probably the largest in the past five or six years, Palmore said. Preliminary investigation indicated all of the occupants were from Central American countries, including Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala.

Authorities rescue 108 people from squalid Houston stash house
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, which described the rescue as the region's largest such operation in at least five years, arrested five men on suspicion of running a smuggling ring, agency spokesman Gregory Palemore said. They had not yet been formally charged.The phone call to police was a plea to help save a family held by smugglers. But when authorities raided the south Harris County home which they believed held the woman and children Wednesday, they found 110 people imprisoned in a packed, rancid "stash house" where smugglers had locked them away pending payment for their freedom.__________________________________

2 children among more than 100 people held hostage in Houston stash house
One officer described the inside of the home in the 14700 block of Almeda School Road as "awful."
"There is no hot water in the house. There is a toilet that partially works—one bathroom for in excess of 100 people," said HPD spokesman John Cannon.
Police said there was human waste all over the house.
The victims included a 24-year-old pregnant woman and her two children, ages 5 and 7.
