Valerie Rivas, a Texas Police Officer, has been charged with smuggling people across the US border on Feb. 26th. On the date in question, Rivas was found hiding between the sand dunes of Padre Island National Seashore after allegedly trafficking people across the border.

According to authorities, Rivas admitted to smuggling humans across the border, and when they heard the Helicopter, all three of them heed because they knew it was a violation of immigration laws.

Rivas has been a member of Brownsville police force since 2016, and is now under administrative leave due to her illegal involvement in human trafficking.
