HOUSTON, TX — Houston Police say they've uncovered a possible human smuggling operation at an apartment complex.

Police say the "possible human smuggling operation" was at the Los Arcos Apartments in southwest Houston, according to KTRK.

According to KTRK, when officers arrived on the scene, they said they found several people inside an apartment being held.

Investigators said several people have been detained. No further details have been released.

More than a dozen people were found in a home in Houston in a separate human smuggling investigation last week. A 36-year-old Honduran national was charged in that case.
