A Texas border county’s reserve deputy constable remains behind bars after federal agents arrested him along with three illegal aliens that he is alleged to have been transporting in his car. Agents with Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) arrested Luis Enrique Guevara this week after Robstown Police pulled him over for speeding and authorities learned that he had three illegal aliens from Mexico in his car, court records obtained by Breitbart Texas revealed.

Guevara is a current reserve deputy with Cameron County Constables Precinct 1 and a former narcotic’s investigator with the Los Fresnos Police Department. When he was initially pulled over by police in Robstown he flashed his credentials, HSI agents said in the court records

The police officer noted that the three passengers appeared very nervous. As he talked with Guevara he began to notice various inconsistencies in his story. The officer called U.S. Border Patrol agents so they could help determine if the three passengers were illegal aliens or not.

Once Guevara was in police custody, agents with HSI interviewed him and learned that he had a history of gambling in high stakes poker games in Houston and was about $25,000 in debt. Human smuggling was a quick way to for him to make money, court records revealed.

During the interview Guevara told the agents that his brother has a history of working for human smugglers and was his initial contact in order to get started ferrying illegal aliens past the U.S. Border Patrol checkpoint.

Guevara told the agents that he had lost his job in Los Fresnos following an investigation into the town mayor and other corrupt officials in the area and had not been able to get a steady job.
