ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

A special thanks to all the persons who helped bring about a successful ending to this case. I want to give a very special thank you to the members of the Disrupt Team. Without their help and input this case could not have been possible.

This is the story of an alien smuggler with a group of smuggled illegal aliens in a pickup truck that failed to yield for Border Patrol in Temecula, California. Border Patrol chased the pickup north on a major freeway until Sheriff Deputies took over the chase. The chase ended sixty miles later on the shoulder of the freeway. A large group of people ran from the pickup with Deputies in pursuit. The events that ensued while arresting several of the runners would be the cause of an international outcry over allegations of mistreatment. Several Deputies faced the possibility of misconduct charges. The investigation uncovered a smuggling organization that was capable of human abuse which specialized in human trafficking from Tijuana to Los Angeles, California.

CHAPTER 1

I was back from working on the El Huarache case that ended with the arrests of three illegal alien smugglers whose organization was based in Tijuana. The case had an unusual name that was inspired when the case agent noticed that each time he saw the suspect he was wearing footwear commonly used in older Mexico which is the huarache. I had managed to infiltrate the organization and worked closely with El Huarache on his own turf. The case had taken a full four months’ to gain the needed evidence that would ensure prosecution of our suspected alien smuggler. The last part of the investigation required surveillance of the suspect himself. The surveillance part of most cases was the hardest on each agent. When a surveillance point was established agents had to remain in position for long hours and could not leave for fear of being noticed by the suspected smuggler. They had to carry enough food supplies and sealed containers into which they could urinate if they needed to relieve themselves. Although it was often unpleasant, surveillance was one of the most important tools used to gather the bulk of the evidence needed to prosecute and win a conviction in a court of law. If a smuggler noticed that he was being watched, he might immediately stop all activities and the case would be lost. The El Huarache case was made even more difficult because there were two different houses that had to be watched.

At the beginning of the surveillance at either house, the teams had worked eight hour shifts hoping to see an indication of illegal activity. They had worked the day shift for several days without seeing any activity. The teams decided to change to a night shift on a hunch that activity may increase under the cover of darkness. The idea proved to be a good one and we began noting the activities we had waited for. Two vehicles had dropped off large groups of suspected illegal aliens at one of the houses. That meant we had to keep a constant watch on the house until we obtained the witnesses we needed to prosecute El Huarache. After seeing the groups arrive at the house, any person leaving the house was followed on a rolling surveillance. Rolling surveillance was usually accomplished using at least two cars following the suspect to see where he was going and what he would do when he got to where ever he was going. The surveillance team was able to follow El Huarache and had taken up positions in time to see him meet with another person at a gas station parking lot. El Huarache took out two suspected illegal aliens from his car and walked them over to the other person. That person had handed El Huarache a wad of money which El Huarache had openly counted. It was surprising to see him count the money in plain view since displaying large amounts of money could be a dangerous thing to do in public. Satisfied with the amount he left the parking lot and had driven straight back to his house. The two suspected illegal aliens were stopped several miles from the original scene and we had the case’s first witnesses. We used the same method several times until we had the evidence we needed.

The case had turned out to be very long and tiring but that only served to make the successful ending sweeter. The arrest phase of the case was a long awaited moment that was celebrated by everyone who had devoted their time and best skills to make the case successful. After the arrests we managed to find the time and energy to come together over dinner and drinks to recount the case’s highlights. There was the usual bantering between agents about their skills, or lack of, and how luck played such a large part of the case. We celebrated for several hours before finally going home to reacquaint ourselves with our families. We would all take a good long rest before having to report back for duty at the San Bernardino office. After the third day off duty, we reported in for duty and started the tedious work of catching up on daily reports. No one enjoyed the routine paperwork that could take a big portion of the day. When the paperwork was completed we could start working on our own individual caseload. Each agent had to reread their case files and recheck all pertinent information in an effort to restart their cases. In some cases agents contacted their informants for information regarding the current status of a suspected smuggler.
