HOUSTON (AP) - Five men have been charged with using guns and threats in connection with a suspected human trafficking operation at a house in Houston.
A tip led officers March 19 to the single-story home where 115 men, women and children were jammed inside. Some of the people discovered in the 1,500-square-foot home were shoeless and in their underwear. All are believed to be in the U.S. illegally.
A criminal complaint filed Monday alleges the suspects conspired to detain and threaten the immigrants to extort money.
