Default Texas Firefighter Arrested For Transporting Undocumented and Money Laundering

Texas Firefighter Arrested For Transporting Undocumented and Money Laundering
Four people, including a Portland, Texas, firefighter, have been indicted and charged with alien smuggling and money laundering. The charges were announced Monday by U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Texas Josť Angel Moreno and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Director John Morton.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) arrested 26-year-old firefighter and U.S. citizen Peter Jones, Lorena Martinez, 36, a legal permanent resident alien, Beatrice Rodriguez, 39, an Army National Guard reservist, and Josesantos Zacarias, 42, a Mexican national on November 23rd. Jones, Martinez and Rodriguez are also charged with structuring transactions to evade reporting requirements.
The indictment also seeks to forfeit any interest each of the four defendants may have in two real properties alleging the properties were obtained with proceeds from the alleged conspiracy to transport undocumented aliens. Each of the four counts alleged in the indictment carry a maximum of 10 years imprisonment, a $250,000 fine or both, upon conviction.
Jones and his wife are well known in the community due to the birth of their youngest daughter occurring on the Harbor Bridge on the way to the hospital on Christmas day last year. Jonesí wife was initially arrested along with her husband, but no information could be found on her case at this time.
