    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.

    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.
